You know that we are obsessed with creativity – creative living, creative making, if it’s creative chances are we’re talking about it! Well, another aspect of creativity we have been really enjoying over the past couple months is the chance to collaborate and work with fellow creatives that we admire. So you can understand how excited we were when the talented crew at Sparkle Stories reached out and asked us to join their team for a weekly creative project! Don’t know Sparkle Stories?! OK, first let us introduce you…
Sparkle Stories offers stories for the whole family, with specific series broken down by age-range from ages 3-4 to 9+. From classic stories, to the popular Martin & Sylvia series (Danielle and I have both been subscribers for years!), to the beautiful new story packs focused on Helping & Healing, they offer an excellent variety.
But the best part? Well it’s two-fold. First, these are stories that are beautiful to listen to, no matter your age (read: you won’t be annoyed listening to the same story multiple times!) Second, the amazing, calming quality these stories have on children. It really is like magic! We often listen to Sparkle Stories during quiet time and while crafting…
Which brings us to our current endeavor! Sparkle Stories has started a brand new series called Martin & Sylvia: Saturdays! We are creating craft projects that compliment each week’s story. In case you’re counting, that’s 52 crafts made by us for you! There will be big outdoor activities, fun crafts, and even a recipe or two! Plus, in addition to the craft, you get a free printable each week as well – neat!
Recently, over on Instagram, we posted this little preview for today’s project:
Intriguing, right? Wondering what’s going on in the picture? Well wonder no more!
This week, we’re sharing how to combine the non-traditional combination of newspaper and fabric into an adorable decorated paper hat. While pictures may say a thousand words, this time, a video says even more! So check out this quick little video on how to make your very own paper and fabric hat (we dare you not to smile along at the end!):
