Sofie Sunday ~ Heart Paper Mosaic Card

Fold! Stick! Write! What craft am I making?

Cut! Flip! Color! It’s a card!

February is here! Just a few more days and it’s Valentine’s Day. Before this lovely day, #Dinoshawn and I will be making another card. We will show you here how to make this pretty heart card! We will be using some leftover paper bits (from crafts that we previously made) to make this fantastic mosaic. This card will also be a great present on birthdays, Mother’s Day, and more! It’s crafting time!

Materials Needed:

A blank sheet of white paper

A marker or a pen for writing your message

Different shades of pink and red paper (can be from crafts, magazines, leftover cut outs, etc.)

Glue

Drawing materials and stickers (optional)

A pencil

 

Step 1. Prepare the card. Fold it in half, then write a message inside the card. You can also draw things and add stickers, if you want.

 

Step 2. Draw a heart. On the front of the card, draw a medium-sized heart with the pencil as shown.

 

Step 3. Fill it up! Inside the heart, glue the paper bits just like the picture above. This is my brother’s (#Dinoshawn) masterpiece!

Step 4. Add finishing touches. If you want, add some stickers around the mosaic heart. You can also put some on the back of the card (This step is optional.).

And there you have it! A special card for your family and friends. This also doesn’t have to be a card, you can simply do the mosaic on a sheet on paper for a craft. Try experimenting with other shapes, too! Have a super Sunday!

Sofie Sunday: Draw – it – yourself ~ Lovely Present

For today’s segment, we’re having a draw-it-yourself!

It’s been a while since this blog has had a draw it yourself, so I thought it would be a good a idea to bring it back again. For today, we will draw this lovely present! You will need drawing materials (pens, pencils, markers) and also coloring materials.

                      

Step 1: Draw a big square. This is the box of our present.

Step 2: Draw a rectangle. In the middle of the box, draw a medium sized rectangle as shown. This is the part of the bow that wraps your present.

  

Step 3: Draw a bow. The bow is just a circle, with two half triangles on both sides. Place it on top of the present as shown.

 

 

Step 4: Draw the details. Draw shapes, letters, emojis, etc. It’s up to you!

 

Step 5: Color the present! Depending on what color you want your present to be, use the coloring materials to color it.

 

And done! Place this drawing on a wall, door, board, etc. and BOOM! A fantastic poster.

Sofie Sunday ~ Washi Tape Art Christmas Cards

Oh, let’s see what today’s Christmas segment will be!

Annnnnnnnnnnddddddddddddd!!!!!!!!!!! Another card tutorial!

This card tutorial is not very hard, and this will let you finish all of your cards to make (Or at least half!)! This also uses washi tape, so make sure you have lots of them! Let’s get started!

 

What you’ll need:

Washi Tape

Colored paper for the body of your card

Green, yellow, red, and blue paint

Different types of paintbrushes (If you only have one or two brushes, that’s okay)

Scissors

Glue

Marker, Coloring Materials

Oslo paper

 

Step 1: Fold, and write. Take the colored piece of paper and fold it in half. Then write your message (Merry Xmas, Ho Ho Ho, etc.) with the markers and coloring materials.

 

Step 2: On the oslo paper, stick lots of washi tape on it. Place the oslo paper in front of you and place washi tape all over it, just like the picture above.

 

Step 3: Paint and Peel! On the washi tape covered paper, paint on top of it. Don’t worry if the washi tape gets covered with paint, that is totally fine. Once you are done painting, let the paper dry. Then carefully peel off the washi tape. When you’re done peeling, you’ll notice how good the design is!

 

Step 4: Draw and Cut! Flip your painted paper and use your marker to make shapes. They have to be Christmas themed, or whatever you want. Here are some ideas to help you think:

A Star

A Snowflake – This one is kind of advanced, so god luck if you happen to do it!

A Snowman – Draw an easy little snowman shape.

A Snowman’s Head – Draw a circle, them a hat shape on top of it.

A Present – Draw a box, the details will be drawn later.

A Tree – Draw a triangle, the details will be drawn later.

Santa’s Hat – Draw a triangle, the details will be drawn later.

When you have chosen your desired design and satisfied with it, then cut it out carefully.

 

Step 5: Glue your Craft. Get your little cut out and glue to the front of your card. If needed, draw your details. If you drew a hat, draw those little fluff thingies! If you drew a tree, don’t forget -the star!

***Credits to my brother, #dinoShawn for helping me in drawing the details.

And that’s the end of our card tutorial! Hope you enjoyed! See you next week!

Sofie Sunday ~ Christmas Card: Santa’s Hat

For today’s Christmas post, we’ll be doing cards!

Christmas cards are great gifts and will be a lovely keepsake that will last for years. But it’s not always easy to make them. :l. (face stares at wall)

For starters, you’ll need to research a design. You’ll also want it to look pretty, of course. Also, you will probably want an easy and simple but special card.

Well, you don’t have to worry! This month, I will have some card segments that are easy and special! 😀 (relieved face)

This card I’ll be showing you is pretty easy, and little kids will do a great job making these too.

 

What you’ll need:

A sheet of red paper

Scissors

Cotton Balls

Colored Paper of your choice (This will be the card)

Markers, Coloring Materials

                                    

Step 1: Firstly, fold your card in half. Then, write your message (Seasons Greetings, Merry Xmas, Jingle Bells, etc.) and if you want – draw Christmas themed things like snowflakes, snowmen, baubles, etc.

                   

Step 2: On the red paper, cut out a medium sized triangle. This is the base for the Santa hat.

                          

Step 3: Glue the red triangle on the front of the card.

          

Step 4: Now, place the cotton balls on the hat! Depending on the size of your triangle, you will need 4-5 balls.

 

Step 5: Done!

 

See? Very easy! You can also use this idea to make a Christmas tree card, only swapping the red paper for green paper and the cotton balls for washi tape, colored paper cut outs, markers, to make ornaments! Thanks for reading!

Sofie Sunday ~ DIY Christmas Trees Decor

For today’s special Christmas segment, #DinoShawn and I will be doing this really cool, cute, and awesome craft! It is a very simple but special decor you can make to decorate your home. Not only this is easy but also earth-friendly because it uses cardboard. What are we waiting for? Let’s get crafting!

Materials Needed:

Cardboard

Green paint

Paintbrushes

Crayons, Pens, Colored Pencils

Scissors

A Black Marker

Tape

                                                   

Step 1: Draw Triangles. On your piece of cardboard draw lots of triangles. They should be slim and straight.

                               

Step 2: Cut them out. Be careful not to ruin the shape!

Step 3: Paint the Trees green. Place the trees on your work place and paint them a nice shade of green. Once you have painted the trees, let them out to dry.

     

Step 4: Decorate! Once your trees are dry, take out your drawing materials and make baubles, lights, and other decorations your Christmas tree needs.

               

Step 5: Apply Tape. On the back of trees, stick some tape on. Double-sided tape works better than sticky tape.

              

Step 6: Now, decorate the halls! Stick the trees on walls, doors, closets and other preferred places.

 

Looks super cute, right? Hope you liked this Christmas DIY! See you next time!

Sofie Sunday ~ Face Crayons Tutorials: Sneaky Snake!

It’s time for some Face Crayons Tutorials!

Today, we will be doing a snake that you can draw on your arm with your face crayons! This will come in handy if you want to be Medusa, draw it at parties (Face Painting is a great way to earn money), or just for some plain ol’ fun! Let’s start!

Step 1: Find a spot to draw. Rest your arm on a flat surface. A table is a good spot.

 

Step 2: Start with a simple circle. On the top of your hand draw a plain circle. That will be your snake’s head. The color I used was green.

 

Step 3: Make the snake’s body. Using the same color you used for the snake’s head, make the body shape of the snake. Try making it look slim and slinky as possible.

 

Step 4: Color in! Now use a different color to color the inside of your snake. I used yellow, though you can actually use the same color that you used for the shape of snake’s body. For example, if you used red for the body shape you can use red for coloring in.

 

Step 5: Draw the patterns! For ideas, search in Google ‘pictures of snakes’ then look at the snakes in the pictures closely to see their patterns. I just made mine up.

 

Step 6: Draw the snake’s red tongue. Make a two with your index and middle finger then draw the tongue.

 

Step 7: Draw the eyes and nose. This one is simple. Draw two black ovals for eyes then two black slits for the nose.

 

Step 8: Done.

 

And there, my first face crayons tutorial! For removing, rinse with water, scrub some soap on then rinse again. Then dry with some tissues or a towel.

How are you all preparing for Halloween? #DinoShawn and I will be trick or treating at SM Las Pinas. Hope we get lots of candy!

Eyeball: Paint a white circle then add a black pupil inside. Easy!

Blood: Paint and drip some red paint all over the board.

Bloody Hand prints: Paint your hands red and then place them on the board. The print of your hands will show.

Let dry, then proceed to step 2.

 

Step 2:  Glue worms. Cut some yarn, and glue them on the board to make it look like worms crawling!

To make the hang thingy, follow these steps:
