Upcycled Rolled Paper Frame!
This frame is visually stunning with lots of texture and pops of color!
However...it's menace runs deeper.
It was the most tedious and time consuming project
I've ever wrangled my kids into doing.
It all started like this.
I had been planning this craft for a while...and my husband was out of town,
so it seemed like a good time to catch up on projects.
My nearly 12 year old son said "hey mom, can I play Diablo?"
and I said "Yes, but help me with this project first".
Famous last words.
I similarly convinced my 10 year old daughter to play along as well...
so we had the whole crafty family working together.
Minus the 5 year old who was in and out and playing his heart out. (lucky devil)
We begun this escapade at 4:02 pm...
and finished with the last shutter click at 8:49 pm.
Completely SKIPPING dinner!
No worries, we had Marshmallow Mateys at 9:00 pm.
(Note: I would not do this again)
But we made it through all of:
Barbie the Island Princess
and part way into Wreck it Ralph.
Step 1: Supplies List!
You will need:
(It's a great way to recycle old magazines, paper the kids brought home from school...or junk mail!
We also added some Astrobrights Paper in there for some bright pops of color.)
(upcycle one you have on hand, or get one to refinish at the craft store..my advice: think small!)
(you could use scissors...but that would make this project suck even more)
(you could use glue...but that would make this project suck even more)
Either a quilling tool or a toothpick
(just something to roll the paper around)
Paint/spray paint for the frame
Time....lots of it.
and movies to play in the background...or an audio book!
