Airplane For Kids~ (Recycled)

Hello everyone~ How are you? I know it's already late, it's 11.48pm now. Lol! But I have to share this simple tutorial with you all! It will be my first time for sharing a tutorial for kids craft, so please bear with me.

This week, our theme is Air Transportation. I think my tutorial for these airplane is really useful for Preschool kids. :)

The items that you need:
-craft knife
-colour pencil box (the empty one)
-a small piece of manila card
-ice cream stick
-kabob stick (satay stick).

1st step:
Cut out (I draw) the body on the plain side of the colouring box. The reason I used this box is, it's sturdy, cheap & readily available!! As a teacher, we are trying to make use everything. In short, RECYCLE! As you may be aware, that we do need to prepare those colouring pencils for the kids, so please don't throw those empty boxes yet. It come handy when you need it, like I do ;)

2nd step:
Cut out the corner of the colouring box flap into half. As you can see as below.

3rd step:
Cut a slit at the end of the airplane.

4th step:
Put the small piece of paper (the flap that you cut) as the airplane tail on the slit.
Do you notice that I draw a small line on the middle of the airplane body? Yes, that will be where you'll put the ice cream stick. Just remember to cut both side with craft knife.

5th step:
Actually I forgot to show you the circle cut out from manila card. Anyway you can cut the circle randomly or like me, I use a small cellotape as a small circle stencil. You fold the circle into half, then open it, fold the other side into half again. Do this step until you can see the crease. The reason for this creases is that the kids will find it easier to colour the fan. To attach the fan, you'll need to make a small hole on the center of the circle (make sure the kids colour it first). Then put the kabob stick (cut the stick into 3-4 pieces), to ensure the fan will not fall off, I put some tape in front of it (the stick), just wind the tape around it until the desired thickness (you can see it on the later picture). Then you can stick it under the plane with cellotape.

This is how it look like when I assemble it.

This is the finish product.

I asked them to collage their airplanes :)

Their final airplanes. 

My kids' happy faces with their airplanes :)

I hope this tutorial help you alot (especially preschool/art teachers).

Thanks for looking :)

InSha-Allah, I'll be back for more tutorial on kids craft :)

FSFS May Challenge - Handmade Fabric Flowers

Hello everyone!! Here I am going to share with you my latest layout for FSFS' May 2013 Challenge - Handmade Fabric Flowers. For this month challenge, we have a Guest DT, Lean De Ruiter She chose this month theme. I'm grateful that Lean agreed to be our Guest DT of this month. Go to her blog to see more of her wonderful creation. :)

Before I share with you my latest layout, I want to show you my handmade flowers. I made this flowers from organza. I cut it out freehand the gold organza & die cut the maroon organza. Do you want me to do the tutorial? It's very simple though.

This is my take on May 2013-Handmade Fabric Flower Challenge.

I used Graphic45 new collection!! The Secret Garden! They are sooooo beautiful!! I never made this kind of layout. I'm not so good in layering, so this one is kind of my first time to layer it. I chose 3 flowers & attached it near the picture. Amazingly, I enjoyed the process cutting all those intricate details!! Yup the frame of the layouts, the flowers & cages are from a piece of pp. Aren't they beautiful?? I simply love this collection. Actually I'm intimidated by these details like Webster's Pages, but I try to overcome it. Here is the result!! Simply loving it! The title plate is a diecut using Tim Holtz, I sticked the alphas stickers from Fancy Pants Designs, I stamped & cut the cute pink butterfly using Maya Road & put pearls, blings & a small mulberry flower on it.

A close up look of the handmade flowers. This is my first time using the technique to create the fabric flowers.

So what do you think?

Don't forget to join our challenge as there'll be a Gift Voucher BND$20 from Jadyn's Arts N Craft for the winner (local & international winner). Also don't forget to try for our DT Call that I keep open until we have enough members :)

Thanks for looking. Have a nice weekend. :)

Ed's Sketch, Got Stamp? May 2013 Challenge & End of DTC.

Hi everyone~ How are you? I have been missing about 2 weeks! Lol! 
Yes, since I'm back to work, I'm busy adjusting it back! Talking about a long hiatus from work! Oh maternity leave, I'm going to miss you!! Hahaha.. 

While being busy go back to school, I forgot to share you this layout that I made for Ed's Sketch, Got Stamp? For May Sketch, we are required to use the butterfly stamps!!! Yes!!

This I my take,
Adorable Babies.

I rotated the sketch. I stamp the butterflies & cut it out & put some stickles on them. This is a very simple layout from me. The PP that I used were from Bo Bunny. I put some mulberry flowers & tie it with a ribbon. I put some washi tape behind the journal & a little bit of bling over here & there.

Oh these beautiful babies are mine & my younger sister daughter. The one on the left is mine, the right baby is my niece :) They are only one month apart. My niece was born on 24th December 2012, while my daughter was born on 22nd January 2013.

I absolutely love this photo of them!! :) They are soooooo adorable!! Aren't them??

One more thing, I'm so sad that Digital Tuesday Challenge was finally close after it's last challenge :( You can read about the closing of the blog challenge here. I've been with this team for over a year. They are a great team! I'm going to miss them..especially Lora, the owner of the blog challenge.

So now, I'm 'hunting' for some DT Call!! Lol! So if you are happened to have a DT Call or know any blog challenge that is having a DT Call, please let me know. I want to try my luck :)
