Felt Board - A Diaper Box Up-Cycle

I am craft-challenged, at least artistically. I can't draw, I can't paint and I can't draw a straight line.

That's tough when you have all these great ideas for things to do with your toddlers.

Today, I decided to make a felt board.

Without drawing a thing.

From a diaper box.

They have an awesome assortment of felt board stories to cut out.

1. Print out (or draw, if you are so inclined and talented) your pictures.

2. Cut out the pictures.

3. Glue the paper pictures onto felt. Any color.

4. Cut out the picture on the felt. (or, if you're lucky, let your incredibly good-looking hubby and princess of a daughter help you).

5. Cut off the sides of your diaper box. Make sure you include the top and bottom flaps. You will have 2 pieces when done.

6. Glue the 2 pieces together. I glued the cardboard sides facing each other...I thought they might stick together better that way.

7. Now, take a big piece of felt (they sell them at craft stores for about $2.99) and wrap it around you double-strength cardboard.

8. Glue into place.

8. Flip over and admire your handiwork.

9. Watch your darling Little Miss re-enact every song and story you have told to her today! Isn't learning amazing to watch? - you can almost see the lights turning on...

Very cute and good for you for finding an alternative way to do what you want. Like you, I'm not good at painting or drawing and always have to find other ways to be creative.

What a fun idea. I know what you mean, there are definitely times when I am not feeling like pouring out lots of creative energy and just doing something much more relaxed and simple. This is perfect!! I would love it if you link up to my party, A Marvelous Mess. I will be picking one project to feature on the sidebar of my blog for a week!! Here is the link:
