Kids Crafts and Core!

Remember when we made seed paper back in the spring ?  Design Team Member Char Dobson has another take on that project!!!
We are going to make a handmade paper bowl – a perfect place for keeping coins, trinkets or treasures.
Follow steps #1 through #5 for making paper on THIS blog post.
We are now going to add three easy steps.
Step #1: After straining water from the paper pulp, press and form it around the strainer to make a bowl shape.
Find a safe, well-ventilated area to let the contents completely dry.
This may take several days.
Here is what ours looks like after two days of drying time.

Step #2: Trim bowl edges if necessary.

Prepare your work area – we just use and old plastic placemat.

Cover the entire bowl with Modge Podge, first one side and then the other.

Let dry overnight.

Step #3: Your finished project!

Such a great way to use those scraps of cardstock!

    I just moved a few weeks ago and to leave some things behind. My blender being of those items. My question is, can you use a food processor for this? If so what blade/setting do you think I should use? I’ve never used my food processor before, as you can probably tell. Lol. Thanks for your help.

  5. Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to
    know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so
    I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
