Cute Kids Crafts

Since children are always at my home and since I believe in keeping them busy; I started Cute Kids Crafts under the umbrella of TINA'S TREASURE TRUNK© Now the children that I teach and mentor have a division dedicated especially for the masterpieces that they create. They have created all kinds of items from jewelry to paper crafts to doll clothes. Some of the kids have sold their creations at bazzars or yard sales. Mostly they make gifts or things for themselves.

Recently, I was in a card swap and Naudja from Scraps of Color (SOC) sent me a thank you note card. The card was on my dining room table when visiting children saw it and asked if they could make one like it. You want to scraplift? But you all are only seven, eight and nine. Start 'em early, I guess lol. I was catching a cold and really tired, but never too out of it to CRAFT! So after they did a little pleading , I said sure, and gave them cardstock, scrap paper, tools and supplies. They practiced measuring and cutting. They used a rotary cutter, score board, bone folder, texture tool and a few other tools. They used chalk ink to distress/ink the edges of the white cardstock. They even got to test out their stamping skills. The children made 20 of these little thank you note cards and they were used in another swap that I was doing. Is that child labor?

Unfortunately, the inspiration piece mysteriously got misplaced, so sorry there is no picture. A big thank you to Naudja for inspiring the children!

I hope you check back, I am hosting a writing "Pass-it-on" party over the Christmas break.
