A re-imagining of your child’s artwork that lends a personal touch to a gift! Materials Child’s artwork (make sure that it is a piece that they are okay with being cut up.) Paper cutter or ruler/pencil/scissors Craft glue or a glue gun Clear tape Weight such as a rock or binder clip or paper clip Scissors Smock Craft tray Directions Cut four strips of your child’s artwork. Tape or glue the two ends of two strips together, making a loop with the artwork facing out. Hold it together with a binder clip to allow it to dry. You could also have an adult use a glue gun to do it for a speedy finish! Glue the inside mid-point (as seen in the photos). To hold this down to dry (if you are using craft glue), sit a weight on top such as a rock or clip it with a binder clip. We found it was helpful to glue the area in the loop where the two seams were to hide them in the finished project. Allow to dry overnight. Wrap another other strip around the middle of the bow and trim so that it is snug. Glue that loop together. We suggest if you are using craft glue to use a paper clip or a binder clip to hold it in place while it dries. Cut your fourth strip in half and tape them to the the top of your gift in an upside down “V” formation as seen in the photo. Attach your dried bow on top and give it to someone special! Purpose Re-imagining items Thinking of others Adding a personal touch to an item Safety Notes A paper cutter is for adult use or depending on the age and abilities of your child, with direct, guided supervision. Use non- toxic products Use a smock to protect your clothing, should you need it and a craft tray to protect surfaces. A glue gun is for adult use.
