DIY Kid Animal Faces

This month, I’ve partnered up with Astrobrights paper to bring you a fun kids craft and an awesome giveaway! The lucky winner will receive a generous package of Astrobrights paper in 26 attention-getting shades and also a $50 gift card to Office Depot. I’ve been using Astrobrights papers for years (literally — since my college job at the campus print shop over a decade ago) and is my go-to paper for projects and print jobs that need to pop and stand out.

To enter giveaway, just leave a comment at the end of this post sharing how you would use Astrobrights paper to color your world! Giveaway closes Friday, April 11th at 12 midnight PST. Good luck!

Instructions for DIY project below…

Astrobrights Paper

Astrobrights paper
Self-adhesive magnets (I used a magnet strip that I cut down)
Glue stick
Various round objects (such as a glass or spice jar) for tracing

DIY Kid Animal Face

Step 1: Cut out photos of your children in the shape of a circle. Mine were about 2″ in diameter.

Step 2: Cut a circle out from cardboard, same size as the photo. Glue photo to cardboard.

Step 3: To make a lion’s mane, cut out two circles (each circle larger than your child’s photo) in contrasting colors. Cut an opening so the photo can peek through. Fringe the edges and glue mane pieces together, then attach to photo.

Step 4: Add ears and whiskers.

Step 5: Lastly, attach magnet to backside. You’re finished! My kids thought these were silly and giggled at their masked faces!

    I love how vivid Astrobright papers are! My children and I make all sorts of paper projects. Among other things, we’d use these to make cards for our family across the ocean.

    I volunteer with a few after-school programs that offer free tutoring for students. We are trying to create lots of fun math games so the kids can practice their skills without doing more worksheets. This colorful paper would be great for making cards, spinners, and game boards! Thanks so much for this chance to win. :)

    An important thing worth considering is the attorney’s focus.
    A higher salary may not go very far in a city with higher transportation, food, energy, housing and health
    care costs. This is especially true in the field of healthcare law, upon which medical
    ethics are founded.

    Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having
    problems finding one? Thanks a lot!

    Hello! I’ve been following your blog for a long time now and finally got the
    bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Austin Tx!
    Just wanted to tell you keep up the excellent job!

    moreover, revolutionized how the business of
    MLM is conducted. thus, in short if you wish for people to
    follow you, amplify your esteem and become a leader.
    One of the reasons the time spent on developing your funnel is so critical is because you want
    to make sure that the whole process – from beginning to end – all fits and
    flows together.

    In a manual like “Magnetic Sponsoring”, the information has to be generic and serve as a guide designed to help even the newest network marketer to become a magnetic sponsor.
    This process allows you to make money from people even if they don’t
    join your main business, it’s very powerful indeed. By giving your
    presentation, calling prospects, distributing business card everywhere, you are unconsciously adopting what I call the hunter or seeker
    business model.

    Almost every industry or business goes through “it”at some point.

    Ask your doctor what the ideal should be and remember it.
    The ladder was easy for kids of all ages to get up.

    certainly like your web-site however you need to test the spelling on several of your posts.
    A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to inform the truth then again I’ll certainly come back again.

    I visit day-to-day some web pages and websites to read articles or reviews, however this weblog
    gives feature based articles.

    What’s up Dear, are you actually visiting this website daily, if so
    after that you will absolutely get nice knowledge.

    They should be relatively challenging, but you should ensure that
    you can meet them, with a minimum of pain, every time.
    Most of them are full of sugar and processed flour.

    Right after reading this Vi – Salus evaluation you are most likely thinking that Vi – Salus is an excellent opportunity as well as are ready to get started.

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and all. However imagine if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and videos,
    this site could certainly be one of the greatest in its niche.
    Excellent blog!

    Using poor stock and paper will give your potential customers a feeling that you have poor quality goods
    and services. There are so many proven ways of promoting
    your own objectives without cost. After a few phone calls, Rick decided to
    invest in a flight to Los Angeles where my next class was taking
    place, and after the first few hours of the class, he was hooked.

    fantastic publish, very informative. I ponder why the other experts of
    this sector do not understand this. You must proceed your writing.
    I’m sure, you have a huge readers’ base already!
