Double-sided tape has adhesive on both sides of the tape. It can allow people to attach two things together without the tape showing.
Double-sided tape is more effective with sticking objects such as paper, cardboard, and arts and crafts together than regular tape is. Also, double-sided tape usually is not visible in the end product, due to it actually being in between the objects rather than overlaying them. This allows for neater looking projects and better craftsmanship. It can replace glue and attach two things together at the same time. Artwork can be mounted on boards with double sided tape, and plenty of people making scrapbooks use it.
Do you have difficulty making a heart? I mean, do you find it hard to draw a heart that looks even on both sides? You might find that one side is bigger than the other or loop sided or anything else. It is actually very simple to make a symmetrical heart shape. Let’s do it now 🙂
Get a piece of paper.
Cut out the shape of half a heart.
There, your symmetrical heart shape. It can never be too ugly no matter what 😛

“Initially the purpose of introducing Ethan to arts and crafts was to keep him quiet because with my husband at work, I had to handle Ethan on my own. I almost went crazy. I didn’t know what to do with him and I discovered that he actually doesn’t like to be in front of the TV too long. So, the only thing I could think of was to let him play with colours.
“I share instructions for the crafts in my blog so that if parents have the time and patience they can actually create some of the crafts with their own children. Crafts is something parents need to do it with the children otherwise it’s hard to cultivate the interest in the child. The child will get bored and not know what to do with the paper or they won’t know how to create the crafts.
A pipe cleaner is a type of brush originally intended for cleaning smoking pipes. Besides cleaning pipes, they can be used for any application that calls for cleaning out small bores or tight places. Special pipe cleaners are manufactured specifically for cleaning out medical apparatus and for engineering applications. They are popular for catching drips, tying up things, colour coding, and applying paints, oils, solvents, greases, and similar substances.
“Craft” pipe cleaners however are usually made with polyester or nylon pile and are often longer and thicker than the “smoking” type, and available in many different colors. Craft pipe cleaners are not very useful for cleaning purposes, because the polyester does not absorb liquids, and the thicker versions may not even fit down the stem of a normal pipe. Because “sharp” ends of a pipe cleaner are needed to push ends into backing material to hold up objects they should not be left for children under five to play with, unless under supervision.
Creative crafters can make flowers, plants, and animals out of pipe cleaners, as well as using them for other activities. Most craft stores sell assortments of pipe cleaners pre-packaged, or allow crafters to pick out individual pipe cleaners from bins.
