I’m sorry for we did not take pictures during the making this time around. My camera was not with me πŸ™

Anyway, you’ll need 4 paper plates; 3 small ones and 1 big one.

Paint them.

Glue a small paper plate to a big plate.

Cut another small paper plate half and glue as the ears.

Cut legs and tail from the last paper plate and paste.

Cut a strip of paper and fold accordion style and paste as the trunk.

Paste the eyes and you are done πŸ˜€

If you’ve been following this blog, you’ll know that I like to recycle stuffs for crafts. Today, I’m very happy for the craft that I’m sharing with you is totally, 100%, originally MINE πŸ˜€

I sat for hours looking at the Vitagen bottles piling up in the recycling box in my kitchen. Yes, I have boxes in the kitchen labelled “plastic“, “glass“, “paper” and “others“. We ALLΒ need to do our part for the environment, don’t we? After hours and hours of looking at the bottle, I finally came out with THIS. I’m so happy (oh yes, I’ve said that already :D).

Alright, enough ofΒ talking and let’s get to back to business. A friend of mine calls this elephant ELEGEN, so ELEGEN it shall be πŸ˜€ Ladies and gentlemen, presenting….

Elegen, the Vitagen Elephant πŸ™‚

Draw a circle, cut and paste to cover the ‘mouth’ of the bottle.

Use small strips of paper and paste until you’ve covered the entire bottle.

Cut 2 long strips of paper. I used two different colors.
Fold on top of each other and then paste as the trunk.
Cut 2 ears out of colored craft foam and paste.

Cut four strips out of colored craft foam and glue the ends to form a loop.
Paste onto the elephant as the legs.

Glue a pipe cleaner as the tail.
I stick an oval craft foam at the end for maximum cuteness effect πŸ˜€
