Candice Needham from The Book Table explains how to make her favorite winter inspired paper projects.
12 half sheets of patterned paper
12 half sheets white card-stock with calendar printed on it.
Rub-ons or stickers
1. Take clock apart (carefully so you can put it back together and have it work.)
2. Pull out the clock paper and trace onto your patterned paper, cut out.
3. Embellish your clock face to your desire. (remember to leave enough room for hands to go around.)
4. Punch hole in middle of circle to put back in clock.
5. Put clock back together and enjoy.
Paint Can Snowman:
Clear mini pail with handle (stampendous)
Clear 1 quart pail with handle (stampendous)
Clear 4′ pail with handle (stampendous)
Brads of various sizes
1. Peel and stick the snowflake stickers where you’d like around the three clear pails.
2. Stick three middle sized black circle brads in a vertical line on the short clear pail to represent the snowman buttons.
3. Use other brads to make a snowman face on the mini clear pail.
4. Fill three cellophane bags with popcorn and place them in each of the pails. Put their lids on to close them.
5. Place the short pail on top of the quart pail. And then place the mini pail on top of the short pail.
6. Cut two 10″ pieces of the brown polka-dot ribbon. Tie one in a knot on each side of the short pail where the handle meets the pail.
**Remember these pails can be put in dishwasher and they can be reused for other things and other holidays.
Giant Paper Snow Flake
(Each snowflake measures 16″ from tip to tip!)
• Six sheets of 6″ scrapbooking paper
• Glue gun
1. Cut a 6″ square of paper and fold it in half. Then fold in half again.
2. On the side that has the two folded edges, make marks 1/2″ apart.
3. Cut starting at each mark, parallel to the hypotenuse (the long edge of the triangle.)
4. Open out your folds.
5. Take the innermost cut points and bring them around to meet each other so that you can glue the tips together. Use a low temperature hot glue gun and pencil to curl tips together. (The first one is the trickiest.)
6. Then, flip over to the other side and do the same thing with the next set of points.
7. Keep flipping and gluing your points together until you have done each point.
8. Want only one ornament? STOP here.
*Want a big snowflake? Make five more small ornaments. Attach them together in sets of three, then the sets of three to each other using hot gun to adhere the center points, and a little glue where they touch each other on the edges. (As seen on Studio 5 December , 2009: studio5.ksl.com
