Here’s on more segment from Hands On Crafts for Kids– it’s how to make a cute rocket ship gift bag you can make with your kids or FOR your kids!
This is a fun craft that uses Contact Paper, oil pastels, glitter glue, markers and a plain gift bag.
- Cut a piece of shelf paper slightly larger than bag. Place over pattern then trace with felt pen.
- To create stencil, carefully cut out center of each design element leaving the outside edges intact. Be sure to cut out center circle too.
- Insert cardboard into bag. Remove paper backing from stencil then carefully press into place on bag smoothing down. Run a finger along inside edges. Add circle to center where shown.
- Pull off several layers of paper towels then cut into fourths.
- Use the following technique to fill in design. Draw a line of Oil Pastel in desired color around a section. Crumple up a section of paper towel then use a swirling motion to work color into section. More oil pastel can be added as needed. Colors can be blended too. Use a clean paper towels for each color change. Referring to photo for reference, fill in all sections with color. Carefully remove stencil. It can re re-used several times if needed.
- Remove lid from Gold Glitter Glue tube. Start flow on paper towel then outline stars using an even pressure on tube for a smooth line. Use Red, Gold and Orange Glitter Glue to outline flames. Let dry.
