Hi! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion here to share a kid’s Craft project with you. Today I’m sharing how I made puppets for the story, Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See ? featuring tons of Core’dinations Cardstock including the Brown Bear as the focal point made out of Chocolate Box cardstock!
Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See Puppets
I used to teach first grade and my students LOVED reading this book. It’s a great book because it’s repetitive and kids can pick up on how to read it pretty quickly! My son memorized this book when he was 2 1/2 and now being 4 he likes to “read” it to his little sister. I thought it would be really fun for him to use these puppets in his puppet theater and create a puppet show for his little sister to watch.
To create the puppets, I used Chocolate Box , Core Basics , 110 lb White Premium Cardstock, straws, and photos. I cut out the animals using my Silhouette. They might not be the exact same shape as the animals in the book, but at least they are the same animals. At the end of the story, there is a Teacher and Students part. I used photos that I had taken in my son’s class. All the animals and photos I adhered to straws using hot glue. The bear I assembled using Xyron Glue Dots and Xyron Glue Stick.
I love the way this brown bear looks sanded! I used the Chocolate Box and sanded away! I love how the sanding gives him so much dimension.
Core Tip: Use the backsides! The great thing about the Chocolate Box Pack is that it gives you so many options. You can sand away like I did on the bear or you can flip over the colors and use the colored side on the back!
This was such a fun project and I cannot wait to give it to my son and watch his puppet show!!
We hope you had a great long weekend! First up, we have a winner from our giveaway.
Love this cardstock thanks for a chance to win !!

Next up we are showcasing Chocolate Box on the blog this week. What a sweet treat…
chocolate covered cardstock! Sand, tear and emboss it to reveal the yummy colors hidden beneath the texture. It is available in 12×12 assorted packs, 6×6 and Cut & Emboss. And don’t forget single sheets for those special projects, too. First up we have Kate Nolan Denham with a masculine layout filled with TONS of technique!
I wanted to create a very “boy” layout with the photos of my Grandson so I immediately grabbed my stock of Core’dinations Chocolate Box Cardstock. I embossed, debossed, and die cut my way through the Chocolate Box on this layout! Each piece of Chocolate Box was sanded to show the great core colors I chose to compliment Seth’s plaid shirt.
I don’t know about you but we are gearing up for the end of school here. With only less then two weeks left, I need to get busy on some gifts for my kid’s teachers and we hope you have been enjoying the ideas so far this week! You can easily incorporate these with layouts, cards or any paper crafting project.
I love a good gift bag and Debbie Standard as one for us today but that’s not the focal point. She created her own award ribbon using some Spellbinders Scalloped Circle dies! Just die cut them with an embossing machine and then cut them into pieces. Sand and then adhere them in a circular pattern, add some banner strips and you are done!
We have another super cute Thank You Teacher idea from Debbie Standard. This David Tutera Laser Cut Favor Box is the PERFECT idea for a super quick gift. All you need to do is add some candy and fold the box on the pre-scored lines. Finish it off David Tutera Celebrate Tag and sentiment and you are done! I ALWAYS reach for a Core Tag when finishing off a gift whether is one of our Core Tags or David Tutera Celebrate tags. They are the finishing touch for any project and always look great with the silver grommet and sanding.
David Tutera Celebrate Brights Tags are sandable, color core tags that come with a metal grommet. There are 24 gorgeous tags in four different colors and 6 designs and it includes string!
Today we have some gorgeous layouts from Debbie Standard!
We had a beautiful day for my mother’s 87th birthday and afterwards while the girls were still dressed up we went around the corner from my house and had them pose in this beautiful field of blue bonnets (Texas is known for their state flower)! My granddaughter was patient with me up to a point and then she spontaneously burst into some random poses – these were my favorite!
1. Sand the BasicGrey Core Impressions and adhere together with Washi tape.
2. Then I cut and matted my photos on a sheet of white and then backed it with a bright blue and attached it.
3. Next, I cut my title and my balloons from a Silhouette die, ran them through my Xyron 250, sanded them lightly and adhered them to my page.
6. Add some Queens & Co. twine for balloon strings.
