Easy, Peasy, Fun

I am, like, the anti-craft. I learned how to knit a few years ago, and I liked it a lot. And the last thing I knitted was a baby blanket for Flora.

Do the math.

Recently, I was looking for gift ideas for Flora’s preschool teachers. Last year we — well, I — did a “cookie mix” in a jar thing, which the teachers seemed to really like. I was about to start looking for the book I got it from when I stumbled onto this post at Pittsburgh Girlie, and then onto this one.

And I thought, “We can do that.”

So we did.

Yeah, the lighting stinks and all, but these are super cute in person. Flora and I — together — made about 50. The 3/4″ hole punch that Beth mentions is key. They were the perfect thing for Flora and I to do while Kate napped on Sunday. We used Zip-Dry Paper Glue, so there wasn’t too much wait time for drying, and we got most of our patterns from last year’s Christmas cards. The hole punch was easy enough for Flora to use, which was a bonus. She had fun picking out pictures.

The only other thing I would add is that bold colors and graphics show up better than muted colors. Which, if I weren’t the anti-craft, I probably would have figured out. Still, they are all very cool. I have to pick out some for me to keep!

    • Flora was soooo excited to stumble across that pattern. They were actually wheels on a train-shaped card. She was like, “The look like peppermints!” And she proceeded to punch out six circles of them.

      Thanks for the comment,
