On of the new TV show favorite over the summer in our house was CRAFT WARS! on TLC. I don't know if the show is coming back (PLEASE PLEASE TLC!!!!) But "hosting" mini craft wars on a rainy /snowy/or "WHAT CAN WE DO DAY??!!" is become a event at our house.
I gathered all my crafting "junk"-leftovers from craft projects - and I challenged my daughter and niece to a craft war. They had to design a keep sake box for them selves. Now here's a lil pictorial on how it went.
First I dumped THE JUNK-
|WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO....|
|A ready and willing carpenter =)|
The girls got right to work
THE FINISHED BOXES
A busy day and the girls have a nice box to hold memorabilia in.
But most of all ITS LOADS OF FUN!!!!
Challenge your friends, or your kids and see what goodies you can come up with. These Memorabilia Boxes are a good start but there are limitless possibilities.
Butterflies, Bunnies, Easter Baskets, and Flowers.
Bumble Bees, Rainbows, Beach fun, and Cook out.
Leaves, Apples, Acorn, and Back to School.
Snowman, Snowflakes, Gift Wrap, and Christmas.
