September Camp Projects

I can't seem to get back into my routine of posting again....sorry 'bout that. I will try to do better and now that it is Fall and there won't be as much to do, I should be able to keep my promise.

I wanted to post a few of the camp projects for those of you that were not able to attend. We had a really great time and everyone seemed to enjoy the projects.

#1 - Booglie Eyes "2,4,6,8 box"
This box is so super simple to make! All you need to do is take a 1/2 sheet of paper (8 1/2 x 5 1/2) and score down the long side at 2", 4", 6", and 8". Turn to the short side and score at 1 1/2". Make slits in the 1 1/2" scores to make the flaps for the bottom of the box. Make sure you stamp your paper before you fold the box and secure it together. I took a scrap to make a handle and attached with brads. We embellished the box with an embossed mummy tag and a tag made from a shrinky dink! Attached some frayed ribbon to the mummy tag and attach all to the box with silver cord.
