Kid's Crafts for Craft Fair

Magnetic Bottlecaps

I finished gluing the backs on these little "shadowboxes" using E6000.  There are almost as many pushpins (not shown) as magnets. My July 31 and August posts shows the details of how these came to be. They are ready for the craft fair!



My pillowboxes are a bit different this year because I used the a die for my Bigkick instead of handcutting out templates.  It's much easier to prepare the 5th graders for their craft.  The they can run it through themselves to emboss then decorate!

Beaded Snowflakes

was the 4th grade project to prepare for our school craft fair. These will be sold in Dec. as a gift bag.   They were so creative with their designs!
Ribbon is strung though one of the loops on the snowflake along with a homemade tag and attached to a hole punched white lunchbag.

We used the 3.75inch forms. The forms can be used with most beads 5mm and larger, and size 6 seed beads can also be used.
 Be sure to use a seed bead or very small bead for the center(very first bead with each wire). Bend the tip over before moving on to the next wire.



These JOY tags were made by the 5th graders as they also used the Bigkick for the embossing and diecuts.

But these were made by the 3rd graders. Very simple stamping project. (The lighting keeps you from seeing the silver snowflake on each square :)

The posts below this one are the projects we worked on over the summer for this fair.  I hope you use some of my ideas for your own school fair. Feel free to ask me any questions!

Lisa, first off--thanks for stopping by my blog to comment about the earthquake we had. Freaky, huh? Glad to hear nothing extreme happened to you either. I was just going through the post of projects and I LOVE them! What a fantastic job the kids did. I just vendored a craft fair last weekend and did pretty good. I would love to attend your fair, but I'm unable to. Hope you and the kids do well. Again, these projects are beautiful and the kids should be proud.

These are amazing! What great ideas for kids. I loved making crafts like these with my parents when I was little.
