I have always wanted to try screen printing, but never found the time to teach myself. This winter I signed up for a class with a friend. The thinking was it would force me to set aside the 3 hours a week so I could focus on it. I haven’t quite finished the class yet, but here are some of the projects I have finished to date.

A great idea for a dinosaur-themed birthday party. Use these as party favours on their own, or add them to loot bags!
In Stephanie’s words, “For my son’s third birthday, he really wanted to have a dinosaur birthday party. I needed a few cute dinosaur things to fill the loot bags. I whipped up these easy “dinosaur egg” packages to accompany some dinosaur stickers, plastic mini dinosaur toys and chocolate dinosaur lollipops.”

With one of my other endeavours, The Westside’s Story, I hosted a Day Camp Fair a couple of weeks ago. I was looking for something really dynamic to go in the window as promotion for the event. And then I thought, why not get crafty? So I whipped up some basic, construction paper bunting. This is so easy, and can be used for a myriad of occasions, including birthdays, celebrations, and personal declarations for Valentine’s Day (e.g. I LOVE [lover’s name here] displayed prominently in your front window to embarrass your spouse)!

I love a pinata! I find the store-bought ones are made of hard cardboard, they’re difficult to bust open, and they’re just no fun! If you have a few minutes a couple of days, they’re very simple to make and you’re left with a feeling of artistic accomplishment. For my son’s game-themed birthday this year, I decided to roll the dice and create this pinata.
