Many of the puzzles and lacing cards I purchase for my classroom come in wooden boxes or trays. To make clean up time easier for my students I store most of their toys in clear containers that I have labeled with words and pictures. But I keep the wooden containers so I can use them for my crafts.
I am planning to change the theme of my bathroom to ducks simply because I saw a shower curtain that I love. The other night I used my duck Nestability dies and a wooden tray to create this shadow box.
Angela gave me a Heidi Grace "Sunshowers" 12" x 12" paper pad for my birthday. The background paper that I used on the shower box is from that pad. I fussy cut a sun from a second sheet of paper and adhered it to the paper with a double thickness of foam tape.
The polka dotted papers are from Michaels. There was a great deal there last week. You could buy 5 packages of 25 decorative or 50 solid color sheets of tag for $10.00. The eyes on the medium and large ducks are tiny brads. I used a marker to add eyes to the small ducks.
I used heart paper punches to create each duck's wings. I cut the hearts in half before I adhered them to the ducks. I used foam tape, glue dots, and small corks to make the ducks be 3 dimensional.
That's it for today!
