Teacher’s Day – Time to show our appreciation to the ones who have dedicated their time dedicating our children.
Let’s take a look at what one Crafty-Crafted Friend’s Mommy did for the recent Teacher’s Day celebration.
Here’s what Irene of http://zekerene.blogspot.com did 😀
Teacher's Day Gift
The genius part of her uses the floor tiles as a 'ruler' to measure and cut the material into smaller pieces. See? When crafting, all you need to be is CREATIVE 🙂 No ruler? Improvise. The floor tiles can even act as one! That's totally NEW to me 😀
She got lots of earrings and bracelets from Bali ready
She wrapped them up
And then she made some cards
The beautifully decorated and handwritten cards
Beautifully done 😀
Thank you Irene for the wonderful idea 🙂
Merryn had a little lamb, little lamb, little lamb…
Merryn had a little lamb.. 😀 Before I break glasses with my ‘out of tune’ singing, let’s start with our lamb project.
Paper Loop Lamb
Paste one end of a strip of paper to the other end; forming a loop.
Paste two cotton balls as the feet.
Cut two ears from paper and paste.
Paste some cotton balls at the back as the wool and a ribbon near the ear to make it 'pretty' 😀
Personalized Drinking Glasses
Having a party? Help your guests identify their glasses with personalized drinking glasses. You need not go to the extreme of ordering engraved drinking glasses with names on it. Cut cost and use ribbons to tie a name tag around the glass instead 🙂
Personalised Drinking Glasses
You'll need drinking glasses, ribbons, craft scissors, cards with names printed on it and a punch hole
Cut the name using the craft scissors. Punch a hole at the side and run the ribbon through it. Tie around the glass.
You are now ready to enjoy your drink with your personalized glass 😀
Learn the different methods to design a mug and we’ll help you print it.
Flip flops need not look so plain anymore thanx to Anney.

Come Christmas, all I can think of is a wonderful winter wonderland. Let’s get some paper plate and ‘build’ a cute snowman 🙂
Paper Plate Snowman
Glue two paper plates together. Put cloth pegs to secure it until the glue dries up.
I cut a carrot out of an orange foam for the nose. Glue it onto the snowman.
I cut circles out of green foam for the buttons. See my boy trying to photograph himself pasting the buttons here. He's learning to take over my job! 😀
Use a hole punch to punch out tiny dots for the mouth.
I use felt for the scarf, pipe cleaner for the hands and foam and ribbon for the ear muffs. The snowman is ready to cheer up your wall. If you wish to convert it into a mobile, just do two of it and paste it back to back. Tie a string over it and hang. Nice 😀
