This week I did a project with my daughter from Marie LeBaron’s Make and Takes for Kids. We modified the Crushed Eggshell Bunting a bit for her brother’s first birthday, but that was half the fun. In fact, we had so much fun that I’m going to share the project with you today. The project in the book uses crushed color-dyed egg shells – which might be in abundance for some readers after this weeked. Eggshell Bunting Projectfor the project instructions.
Here is how we set about making the bunting as a birthday party decoration!
First my daughter marked her triangles on some leftover scrapbooking paper
Next, she cut them out
She used recyled tissue paper to make her letters
Then she glued the triangles onto some great ribbon we found on sale at a local craft store
She added some finishing touches from my papercrafting stash
And, voila, the finished banner. The baby couldn’t read it, but I think he thought it was fun all the same.
