An ideal gift for parents and relatives
A great idea for Mother's day or birthdays – but not only then. You can always impress your mum or dad with a lovingly designed badge. Choose some nice patterned paper and a fitting decoration. Then you can get started.
- extra thick transparent paper
- photo paper
- heart button, glitter stones or petals for decoration
- 1 brooch pin
- Pritt Magic Stick
- Pritt PVA Craft Glue
Cut out the strips necessary; children shouldn't need any help with folding etc.
You will need a long strip of transparent paper for the badge. It should be about 4 cm wide and 35 cm long. Fold the strip like a concertina in equal sections.
Then carefully glue the thin ends of the strip into a circle with the Pritt Magic Stick.
Cut out a circle from the coloured craft paper. Put a good spot of glue in the middle. Put the concertina circle on top and press it down slowly in the middle onto the glue. Hold it
Cut out another circle from the coloured craft paper. You can write on it or decorate it with glitter stones, a petal or a pretty button. Stick it all onto the top side of the badge.
Finally, glue the brooch pin on the back with Pritt PVA Craft Glue.
Tips and tricks:
If you want the badge to have a neat edge, you will have to push the end of the concertina tightly together and cut it into a neat point.
