Paint Planet Card Making
We love all things space, so when this month's Bostik challenge had a space theme we were all ready for this one. We decided on a simple card making craft which can be adapted in lots of ways using different materials and purpose.
This craft does need a bit of adult assistance to cut card but is otherwise perfect for children of all ages. Mine are 2 and 5 and really enjoyed this one and were really pleased with the outcome.
You will need...
- Black card
- Light card
- Paint brush
1. Fold your card, Mark out where you want your planet 'hole'to be and splatter with white/silver/glitter paint. Depending on your paint you may want to water it down slightly. Set aside and leave to dry.
2. On your light card, roughly paint a few areas big enough to fill the holes drawn out on your card. This will sit behind the 'frame' so needn't be neat, in fact the messier the better! When you are happy with your paint leave it to dry.
3. Cut out the circles you marked out from the black card.
4. Once everything is dry, cut out your painted area to size, ready to stick on the inside cover of your card, filling the hole cut out.
5. Leave to dry and weight down if need be to avoid the card curling.
6. Your card is now ready to write and all ready to give to someone special. These would be great for teachers with a 'you're out of this world' message. You can add rockets, stars and aliens too!
I hope you like this one, please let me know if you try it!
