Babygirl's playgroup came over for an art project yesterday. I'd like to say the lack of pictures is because we were having so much fun that I just forgot to take my camera out. The reality is not so pretty: Babygirl was up from 10pm - 3:30am the night before (love teething!), then got up at 7am and my brain was fried. I took the camera out and left it in plain sight....but did I take any pictures...nope. The pictures below are all after the fact.
Here's what I call Sticky Art (Step by step directions at the end of the post):
Basically you take clear contact paper and stick "stuff" to it, then back it with a piece of construction paper.
Here's the "stuff" we used: feathers, pom poms, yarn snippets, foam shapes and letters, stickers, ribbon flowers, and construction paper shapes.
Here are Babygirl's Sticky Art Collages:
Step by step directions:
1. Cut a piece of contact paper a bit larger than your construction paper.
2. Take the backing off the contact paper and tape the contact paper to your work surface. Sticky side up :)
3. Place your "stuff" on the contact paper, pushing down slightly so it sticks.
4. Once finished you will place the construction paper over the contact paper. Apply a little pressure so the contact paper sticks to the construction paper. Smooth out any air pockets that may form as you go.
5. Since you cut the contact paper larger than the construction paper you will be left with a contact paper edge. Fold this edge over the construction paper. At the end you will have some "extra" contact paper in the corners. You can fold it over and tape it to the back of your art or cut it off.
