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…
Self-adhesive magnets (I used a magnet strip that I cut down)
Various round objects (such as a glass or spice jar) for tracing
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!
Update: Congrats to Marty, comment #2, on winning the gift pack from Astrobrights! Thank you all for reading here and participating in the giveaway!
