It’s Saturday morning and time for Coffee ! And this Saturday we are making something for the coffee lover in your life for Valentine:
Coffee wraps that hold gift cards :
Pattern (you can make yourself/pintrest ) for holder & hearts
Felt squares easy to work lots of colors with /no frayed edges
Sew on snaps (Velcro or other closure)
Basic sewing supplies
a base wrap
Hearts or any decorations.
I just measured the cup and add 2 inches for overlap for the pattern. Cut out your base the size of pattern/ then cut a second one a little smaller to make a pocket for gift card. Cut out hearts in different colors to decorate.
Once all cut out layout your design. If you like you can pin in place or a drop of glue. Sew hearts on pocket and then Sew pocket on front of wrap-leaving room on top to place gift card. Then wrap and coffee cup and place sew in snap to hold wrap.
This is a quick and easy gift perfect for any occasion- with basic craft supplies. Using felt means no worry about the edges. Lisa
Today’s Tuesday post is about the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah . It’s the Jewish festival commemorating the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt against the Seleucid Empire. It is also known as the Festival of Lights. Want to know more or read about it check my earlier post.
My Saturday Kids craft is one from a great place to find inexpensive crafts and decorations. My local Dollar Store. Planning a class party or need small things for a gift bag it’s the perfect place yo shop. These are simple Paint your own ornaments (2) for a $1. Have fun and go exploring for things to do this weekend with the kids. Lisa
Now if you are into Clay artist you could make your own. But this is a quick alternative. Lisa
Welcome to Thursday ! Today -I start my Festival of Holiday with Halloween :
What could be any more fun then a Halloween party for Kids :
Party Begins with some fun party games : Wrap the Mummy
Divide the children into groups of three to five kids. Select one child in each group to be a mummy. Then give the other children a roll of toilet paper or crepe paper. Instruct them to wrap the mummy with the paper, leaving the eyes, nose and mouth uncovered. The first group to be done with their roll of paper, wins.
