Simple, Yet Beautiful Creations
The best part of any art project is the actual creation. Students will enjoy picking out flowers and leaves, ribbon and details they wish to use in their art project.
Instruct the students to place their flowers and leaves in the center of the laminate, so that there is a margin of laminate around them.
An adult will need to laminate the pieces, since laminating machines are extremely hot. If clear contact paper is used instead, an adult will need to assist some students in sticking the two pieces together.
Shavings of wax crayons may also be added. These will melt inside of the laminate, creating a stained glass look. With contact paper, small bits of colored paper, such as scraps from the hole punch, can be added instead, as well as glitter (sparingly) or small bits of ribbon, thread or yarn.
Once laminated, punch a hole at the top of the laminated flowers/leaves for a ribbon or piece of yarn. Knot the top.
