A Jellyfish Craft for Kids!

Howdy friends. My children have really been enjoying Greek style yogurt lately and I was looking at the neat roundish shape of the containers and thought “Jellyfish!” so I washed them and got to work making these whimsical sea creatures! It was a blast and I even made these with my daughters and some of their friends and I didn’t have to worry about running out of supplies (or how much they cost) because they came from Papermart!

See how easy it is? I think these look kind of elegant and when they catch the breeze they float around so prettily:) Here is what I used for today’s project: Tulle, glitter, paper ribbon, acrylic paint, wire, beads, glue and a clean Greek yogurt cup.  If you don’t have these supplies on hand why not check out the fabulous prices and selection Papermart. I do hope you try this craft with a child in your life! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

I just started watching the show “The Lazy Environmentalist” and it got me to thinking…”Can I be even greener in my crafting?” Here is a card I made with some thick plastic packaging:

Stamps: Stampin Up!, Paper: K&Co., Die Cuts: Cricut

Stamps: Stampin Up!, Paper: K&Co., Die Cuts: Cricut

I used the cute Sock Monkey set from Stampin Up, stamped it with SU! basic black on Georgia Pacific Cardstock and water-colored him, with M Graham co. paints. The paper is by K&co (there are the cutest sock monkey patterns in there!) and I cut all the shapes out with my Cricut and accent Essentials cartridge. Now that’s some Chic Trash! Happy Crafting!
