Crafts For Kids

Spring, that annual period of transformation. So, I thought it’s time to work with a symbol that marks ‘transformation’ like no other symbol does: the butterfly. We ALL need butterflies. To create ‘how to’s for my craft readers, I’ve collected and developed ideas and free craft tutorials, stencils, templates, plus other design tools~ of use for a range of crafts from embroideries to art journals.

Be inspired and create a magnificent transformation in your life, through art. Here are lots of ideas, but I’d like to see your projects as well! Surprise me!

Years ago I made this Butterfly Zipper Brooch when visiting my mom. She used to be a seamstress and had tons of ‘rescued’ zippers from old pants. I gave this one a new life by shaping it into a butterfly and using it as a butterfly brooch.
