Design Team Member Kim Jeffress is here today with an awesome tutorial for us. Here is a little bit about the project in her own words.

The Space Stick

My eldest who is 4 is learning to write. He has had trouble remembering to put spaces in between each word  as he writes. I decided to make a space stick out of some Core’dinations cardstock, a pop stick and some other bits and pieces.

Step 1 punch two circles out of some cardstock. I have used a sheet of Vintage Cardstock.

Step 2 Emboss your circles using an embossing folder. I have used a circle embossing folder which i Thought looked like craters for me space theme.

Step 3 Sand your circles to reveal the core underneath.

Step 4 Grab a coloured pop stick and glue it to the back of one of the circles. Now glue the other circle on top.

Step 5 Finish off your Space stick by inking the edge to add difinition and adding stickers and other bits and pieces suitable to your theme.

Step 6 Now your Space stick is ready to use!
