Fun& Easy Projects for Kids and Adults! (Summer vacation is coming!)

Hi friends! Sometimes I get a craft supply in and my girls really dig it. That was the case with these plastic tray/frames called Alta-Caps from Craft Chameleon. You can use them to make magnets, jewelry, card and scrapbook embellishments and so much more!

I asked the girls if they would like to join me on today’s video and design some fun projects, see what they made!

Video!

 

 

Supplies:

You could use these accessories with the decorated Alta Caps.

*Note: Don’t use adhesive sheets in punches, it may create a lot of buildup on the punch and make it work poorly, besides, the adhesive sheets cut great with scissors. If you get adhesive on the scissors you can clean it off with goo-gone.

And now for a funny story…

I wore the butterfly necklace out that night to do some errands. I had to stop by a store and return a couple of shirts and the sales girl complimented me on my necklace to which I proudly exclaimed “I made it! It was super quick and easy, would you like it?” I think I came on a bit too strong, she gave me the ‘get this crazy lady out of here look’ handed me my receipt and said “No thank you ma’am” LOL! Some people just are not ready for my crafty enthusiasm I guess.

  2. Cool projects; the girls did great! Quick question about the strong magnets… would they work with the MISTI? This tool requires really strong magnets AND they cannot be too thick in height. What are your thoughts? Thanks Lindsay!

    • they are very thin and strong. I don’t have a misti so I can’t say for sure but if the did not work you can use them for other crafts, they are $7 for 50.

      • I looked them up (via your link)… the magnets are a GREAT price, and, as you say, even if they don’t work, they will come in handy! Thanks and see you in Springfield this June.

  4. I have tried to watch several of your videos on my Kindle Fire Browser and I keep getting a Unilever commercial for vaseline, which won’t go away after I have watched it and let me watch the video. This has been going on for more than a week and it does not happen on any of the other channels I watch on the KFB. Is there something you can do? This has never happened before.

  6. I loved that necklace. Don’t ever lose that spontaneous attitude. I would have probably given it away myself. I have done that with my knitting. That’s why I hardly have anything I knit. I know a bunch of little girls that would love to try this
