Let’s Make Paper Drums!

Hello friends! What a busy week! For those of you expecting an Ask a Crafter episode it will be posted tomorrow or you can catch it shortly on my YouTube channel. Every month I teach a craft class for children at my local library. I really enjoy the January craft as we celebrate Chinese New Year, it is fun to work up a project for each years zodiac sign, 2014 is year of the horse. check out the fun paper drums I made:

DCF 1.0

I used supplies from Papermart, stamps from About Art Accents and a few general crafting supplies to make these, watch the video to see how:

As I mentioned in the video I like to choose supplies from Papermart that can be used for many crafts because they come in generous amounts. The rat-tail cord is beautiful in my handmade jewelry, top quality really, but it is cheap enough that I can use it for kids crafts too. The gold paper doilies add glitz and ribbon and raffia can be used for nearly every craft if bought in generic themes and colors. I hope you try this craft with your children or grandchildren. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
