PaperWeight Making From Trash To Treasure
By Khadija's Creative Mind on December 16th, 2013 Hello Friends,
As you know I am always fond of recycling & reusing extra/used stuff, So here Today again I will be sharing reuse of a totally trashed thing! I love this colorful piece of art by me after so long..hehe..seriously..well do you have any guess about what is this colorful thing made of?? you may read the caption of the image so no more mystery here..
Actually once upon a time I made some Homemade Dough for crafts & jewelry type things, and I made a few things too but later I totally forgot that I still have it saved in my crafty closet… When I saw the tight jar in which it was saved I said to myself “oh yeah its something important inside” BUT when I pick it up, it was dry & in a lump shape.. totally trash!! But I thought why not to create something with this trash.. so at the same time a light bulb blinks in the Khadija’s Creative Mind & it started working on….!! have a look what was the colorful/useful thing I have done with a trash dry dough..
Let’s see what to do if the dough gets dry or the making of dough failed for any reason.. So now you will not be throwing your failed dough lump outside.. wait until it dries & then start working on by making this colorful Paper weight.. its super easy & so fun! best for kids crafts..and not bad for gifting others..
First I torn the plastic bag in which the dough lump was fixed. Then I take the paper cutter with a slim nib & started making abstract designs & lines with the cutter. and then I picked up some sharp colors of brush markers/markers.
You can check the recipe of this handmade dough HERE & see all the crafts I have done with this recipe HERE. I hope you will be Enjoying my all ideas & Tutorials related to dough crafts..Have a colorful day everyone!
