We are part of the Bostik Bloggers network, and ever month receive a box of lovely crafty bits and Bostik products and a theme to work around. This month’s theme was ‘dragons’.
We decided to make some lovely dragon pictures to stick up on our playroom wall. These dragons are a great way of using any odds and ends of patterned paper or card, ribbons, sequins etc – all the stuff that you don’t want to throw away but are difficult to use up otherwise! Alex absolutely loved making these (and peeling the glue off his hands afterwards!!).
You will need:
Strips of sequins
Odds and ends of ribbons and ric-rac
Bostik white glue
Scraps of coloured paper or card
Bostik Glitter Glue
- Use the Bostik white glue to ‘draw’ a squiggly line on your black paper
- Press down a strip of sequins along the glue lines
- Cut out triangles from some bits of card (we used some lovely sparkly gold card) and stick them onto either end of the sequins to make the head and tail of the dragon.
- Then add googly eyes and some ric-rac or ribbon for a tongue using the Bostik white glue. We also added a button for the nose.
- Cut up strips of coloured and patterned paper or card and stick them across the sequins. Add some lines of glitter glue for extra sparkle.
- There you have it – a beautiful dragon picture using all the left over bits of craft materials!
