When I was little, my aunt Ruth was the arts and crafts master. One of her favourite crafts was to iron petals between pieces of wax paper. It makes very pretty stained glass-like art. I wanted to do something similar with C but am too nervous to use an iron around my little ones who climb on everything. Then I thought about the laminating paper I’ve been playing around with lately…
Blank photo cards (they have special pockets on the front to slip photos into)
2) I cut the card so that the photo pocket was now a “window”.
4) C sprinkled dried flowers on one of the laminating paper pieces (I laid it on the table, sticky side up). Then I covered it with the other laminating paper piece. You have a sheet of flower stained glass!
6) C drew with crayons inside the card. Then the flowers have a colourful backdrop!
A little more work for these cards, but the end result is pretty impressive.
