My summer has been go-go-go!!! I haven’t found much time to just sit in front of my computer or craft desk…which I miss! Sorry for the long break between blog posts. I really miss working on fun & creative projects for all of you!
Here is where I’ve been almost all summer…
…in a (hot) car driving kids to camps, Vacation Bible School, swim lessons, soccer, karate, library, friend’s houses or traveling somewhere far away to visit family. But, it has been a good summer! When the kids are busy, then the summer flies by!
So here’s a fun little project to keep your kids busy!
1.) For a car, use the wider paper or 1/4-inch wide quilling paper. Roll a 12-inch strip of paper into a rectangle and roll a 6-inch strip of paper into a square. Glue them together.
2.) For the wheels, use the narrow paper or 1/8-inch wide quilling paper. Measure and tear a 6-inch BLACK strip of paper and a 3-inch BRIGHT WHITE strip of paper. Glue the two strips together by placing a small dab of glue at a paper’s end and overlapping the second strip.
Use a straight edge to make sure both strips are straight!
Starting from the BRIGHT WHITE end, roll the 9-inch strip into a tight circle. Repeat for the other wheels.
3.) Glue the wheels to the side of the car.
Hope you’re having a great summer vacation! Safe travels!
