Grandma’s Summer Fun Using Recycled Drink Cylinder
Summer is around the corner, and Debi is once again proving that she is an AMAZING Grandma! She has some summer projects for the kiddos, that are fun, and eco friendly!
This grandma is so excited about Summer coming. Summertime means I will have my babies for a short time. My baby girl is 3 and half loves to craft with Granny! So I decided to help the environment and have fun with Rei too! So I am putting together crafting ideas for our vacation time together. I want this planet to be around and litter-less when my grands and their kids inherit this earth. So I am creating a fun way to get my Reilee to recycle and yet have a blast.
So this is what we are starting with!
CraftwellUSA’s eCraft die cutting machine
eCraft Pro Software
my face design file (gift to you!)
Xyron’s Mega Runner (LOVE THIS)
Xyron’s 1.5 Create-A-Sticker machine (LOVE TOO) from Walmart
Card Stock - eCraft Diecutable Cardstock from The PaperMill Store
puzzle piece earrings from http://fabric-ecraft.blogspot.com/2012/03/puzzling-gift-idea.html
any tea, lemonade or grits empty storage box will work.
fun foam for wrapping the container from JoAnn's Fabrics
This is so super simple. I have provided the face piece files for either the eCraft Pro Software or the svg files for you! You will have to manual separate them and then cut them out. I love the ecraft as I can use scraps to make my small pieces.
I used my Xyron’s Mega Runner to adhere the fun foam to my tea container. I also used the Mega Runner to attach my “hair” as well.
For the smaller pieces I ran those thru my Xyron’s 1.5 Create-A-Sticker it is so easy and not messy at all. I love the all over coverage!
Here you can see my individual face pieces ready to be placed. This is so easy and I know that Rei will have a blast. I can’t wait to make accessories for them too! I can see bows, masks, and even party hats made for our special container!
and here I am the Grandma recycled instant tea container! Are my ears really that big…LOL! Ready for a night on the town with my puzzle earrings. I just hope that my little grand-daughter has fun playing with me and making her own storage person. Yes you can put your “stuff” still in the container!
I wish all of you joy for every day of your life! I hope that you have many special days and that my everyday will remain just that a special day.
See you next week,
Thank you Debi, for this fun Summer idea! Let Debi know how much you liked her project!
