Start the year off in a "BRIGHT" way with a gift for the teacher that your kids create!
AstroBrights papers sent me a pack of their papers and asked me to create a Back to School tutorial to share! I Love the BRIGHT colors they offer!!! I haven't seen these hues offered in this type of paper before! They are so great for cards, projects, flyers, crafting - for the home or office! The unique stand out colors really get noticed and I just can't help feeling happy with all those bright colors staring back at me!
Let's get creating! Here's what you will need -
Tall candle in glass holder ($1 store)
Step 1: Cut several colors of the AstroBrights Papers into strips. Make them different widths too.
Step 2: Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the bottom section of the candle holder. Place a strip of paper around and secure the end into place.
Step 3: Repeat all the way up the candle holder. Place the strips as close together as you'd like or space them out. Mix the colors and the widths are created a pattern!
Step 4: Let it dry and then print out a saying and attach a cute card. We used 2 different sayings - Looking forward to a "BRIGHT" new year OR Can't wait to be en"LIGHT"ened in your class this year. I also left some space for my child to sign their name when they give it to their teacher.
I think the AstroBrights papers makes the project! They just wouldn't be as bright, fun and happy without these great colors!
