Hey gals! So I’ve been gone for a long while
mainly because I’m so lazy heh heh… But now I have something to post! So let’s get started…
We’re going to make a bulletin board today! It’s cute, fun and easy! So let’s get started!
What you’ll need:
Note pads and/or paper
Glue (I’m using glitter glue cause I’m just that cool and also because I couldn’t find normal glue)
A cereal box
2 Small fake flowers with stem holes
And Fabric of any kind.
AKA Stuff that I added on later that I totally forgot was a part of the craft
And a sharpie
Now we can get started!
Start with cutting out the top of your cereal box.
Make sure the square you’re cutting isn’t too big for you’re dolls.
Boom! The square is cut!
Next unroll the fabric and lay the cardboard on top of it.
Now take a sharpie…
And draw a bigger square around it.
And cut it out.
Put glue on the top of the cardboard.
And fold the fabric over.
Do the same on the opposite side.
Now you’re gonna fold the next two corners. DO NOT glue it at the top like you did with the last two.
Take your sharpie and mark the bottom…
And top of where the fold ends. Make a long string of glue from one mark to the other.
And do the same on the other side.
Now flip over the board.
Now comes the fun part
Use your decorative tape to make cool columns! Make sure you have a small one at the bottom to save room for the pencils.
Now take out your paper/note pads.
I’m using my biggest one for the biggest column or you could use a bunch of small pads.
Here’s a closeup of the quote at the top.
Next I’m gonna take these smaller pads.
And tape them on the second biggest column. I like to add decorative tape on the ends of of the pads just to make them look artistic.
Now we’re gonna move onto making the pencils.
Take a tooth pick.
And put a small glob of glue on the end (sorry bout the blurry picture the camera wouldn’t focus but at least you got an in depth picture of my carpet!)
And insert the flower on top like you would the stem.
Do the same with the second and voila!
Take your sharpie and color the end of the toothpick so it looks like graphite (I used black glitter pens for my first pencils and trust me you need to use a sharpie for this.)
And you’re done with the pencils!
At the end of your bulletin board take a small piece of tape and press on the ends of the tape onto the board.
Make sure it looks like this.
Now insert your pencils!
Next cut a piece of paper that is slightly smaller than the column it’s given.
Now write whatever you want! I’m writing “Today’s Agenda” because activities seems so plain (also I didn’t know how to spell it at that present time.)
For a little flair and your own creative touches! I like adding cartoon heart to everything!
Bam! Doesn’t this look amazing!
Cut out a long piece of string and tape or glue or tape and glue the yarn onto the back of your board.
And your done! I hope you liked the craft and if you made one let me know! Bye!
