Hello everyone! It’s kid’s craft week on the American Crafts blog and I’m so excited to share with you a fun project that my daughter created with me for this occasion! Spending time with my kids and playing with pretty papers means double pleasure for me! I love to see how my kids challenge their creativity by trying new techniques and ideas every time!
We just started thinking about our project, when my daughter asked me to buy a new case for her pink sunglasses. I immediately knew that this would be the perfect project for us! Paper cases or purses are so fun to create, and they are great to store tiny things at summer time! As my daughter’s favorite characters are unicorns and mermaids, I immediately knew that she would be so happy to use the Stay Colorful collection by Dear Lizzy. The pretty colors and cute icons are perfect for any kid’s craft projects!
We started with cutting the base of the purses. I cut a simple template using my cutting machine, and my daughter drew it around to make three purse bases from pattern papers. I absolutely adore how she paid effort in folding them as neatly as possible.
When finished, she started the best part of the process, the embellishing! She found a lot of cute things from the collection to decorate the front of the purses. She chose tiny puffy stickers, layered stickers, acrylic shapes and ephemera pieces.
She also asked her plastic needle and ribbon to stitch around the edges. I absolutely adore her concentration to make her purses pretty!
To add more fun, Kitti created handles for the purses using beads and embroidery floss.
This project was so much fun to create, and we had a great crafty time together with my daughter! I hope you are inspired to create one or more with your kids! Happy crafting!
