Make beautiful holders for your writing and painting tools using colorful card paper!
Duration: 10 minutes
• R39301 Tube Crafts
• R22052 Double Color Sheets
The R39301 Tube Crafts will be used to make the tubes for the holders.
Select one flat sheet of the Tube Crafts and cut it all the way across using the midpoint notch as a guide.
After you have cut across the sheet, you should have two separate templates to make smaller tubes.
Roll up several of the tubes in various sizes.
Next, cut little slits into the bottom edge of each tube. Space the slits at about ½” apart.
Press the tabs outwards to make the tubes stand more securely. Tape them down onto a flat sheet of Double Color Card paper.
And voila! A great way to keep all your desk tools in one neat little area. We suggest using 3 tubes at a time because they provide stability for holding various objects. Use the tubes to store your favorite colors of markers, pencil crayons, Goo Spreaders, paintbrushes, pipettes and more!

Loralee Lewis makes beautiful stationery for sale at her website here. Loralee’s experience with paper makes this Paper Doll Pad project an innovative craft for Thanksgiving! Celebrate diversity with fun paper doll characters for your Thanksgiving table!
Loralee Lewis posted her craft on November 22, 2008, entitled: “Gathering Together Activity and Thanksgiving Kids’ Table.” She notes that Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate diversity, and what better way to do so than through customizable paper dolls?
The Paper Doll Pads come in a variety of skin tones! Use construction paper for the clothes and decorate the faces with black marker. To stand the paper dolls up, glue on clothespins to the paper backing! Loralee shows you how at her blog post.
Tape the hands together to represent the importance of community! Tip: Decorate characters to look like historical figures.
Thanks to Loralee for this post!
