I'm not "lion" when I say I had a super fun day on Saturday stamping with some of the kids from our local Elementary School. The parent group sponsors an Art Festival with various different arts and crafts sessions for the kids to try out. I was the stamp artist. If you've ever worked with kids groups you know what I mean about having fun. These kids were so enthusiastic and loved the projects.
Here's one of the projects - a Punch Art Lion card
This is a list of the punches we used:
* the mane . . . Blossom Punch
* the legs . . . . Modern Label Punch
* the face . . . . 1-1/4" Circle Punch
* cheeks . . . . . 3/4" circle punch
* nose . . . . . . made with the small heart that's part of the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack
The sentiment is from a set called Just Sayin', which we stamped on scrap paper and cut out by hand. The kids had a lot of fun making this punch art lion.
The Kids Art Festival is all about having fun being creative. Punch art projects are a great way to be creative because you take a piece that was intended for one purpose and find a new and exciting way to use the shape. The Blossom shape makes a great lion's mane . . . of course it makes a great flower too.
We also used the Blossom Punch to make these little candy treats for the teacher whose room we were using. I used to be a classroom teacher and I know the level of trust involved when you allow a stranger to use your room. I had fun, the kids had fun and I wanted the teacher to know we appreciated the use of her room.
The Rolo treat flower was very easy to make. We punched 1 pink (Melon Mambo) flower and one green (Old Olive) flower and glued them together. Then we glued a Rolo to the center and attached a Thank-you Tag.
