Steps to Make Craft Octopus:

curled paper1. Firstly, to make tentacles, curl the paper strips tightly up to half the length and hold for a while. This will help the curl to stay longer.

2. When you’re done, it should look something like this.

3. Next, stapler them together. What I did was stapling alternate colors and four strips in a group.

Hanging Paper Craft – Family Hearts

June 1st, 2010 Posted in Kids Crafts

Surely it is a waste to make some craft and forget about its where about. If it happens often and you would like to try something new, why not try doing some paper craft and hang it in the children’s room. You will never misplace it! :)

Material for hanging paper craftHere is what we need:

1 Some colored paper (preferably thickness about 125gsm)- draw lines across about 2.5cm width.

2. Craft scissors (again!)

3. Stapler

4. Double sided tape

5. Some messy strings (just kidding!)

I’m going to show theĀ  making of ‘Family Heart Shapes’. Which also means, the more you have in your family, the more heart shapes you will make.

Paper strip cut folded into half1. Firstly, cut the colored paper into strips about 2.5cm width each. Then foldĀ  it into half.

/

/

/

/

/

Forming heart shape2. Next, by holding both the edges inward, form a heart shape and stapler them together.

By the way, the secret that I never mentioned about is that if you’re using A4 paper, the length of the paper is 29.7cm. This length is just right to make a ‘Big sister heart’ size.

/

/

/

Family hearts3. For other hearts, you need to join the strip to get longer length.

Recommended length:

Daddy Heart: 1 1/2 strip
Mommy heart : 1 3/4 strip
Big sister heart: 1 strip
Little brother heart: 3/4 strip

When you’re done stapling, here is how all the heart would look like.

/

Attaching string to top of the heart4. Now that we’ve got all the Family Heart, it is time to label them ‘Daddy’, ‘Mommy’, ‘Sister’, ‘Brother’ – by names if you like.

Then, attach the string using double sided tape from the top.

/

/

/

/

Attach strong at the bottom of the heart5. Next, attach the string by tying the bottom. Repeat this step to attach all the hearts together.
