This week's reader submission is from Paper Crafts For Children, and boy did it take me back a few years! I remember making fun marbled paper from shaving cream and food coloring in elementary school and thinking it was amazing. This would be a fun project for a Father's Day gift, or gift wrap! Check out Paper Crafts For Children's other fun tutorials, too.
Foam Marbling Tutorial
This paper crafts for children activity gave us all a real buzz, it was fun to do and the decorated paper can be used for so many things! Materials needed for this activity are shaving foam and dyes or food colorings. Also a container to squirt the shaving foam in and of course lots of paper.
1. Shake the shaving foam well and squirt a layer into a dish.
2. Dribble dye or food coloring onto the shaving foam.
4. Lay a piece of paper on the foam and dye and gently press the paper so that most of it touches the foam.
5. Peel the paper off. Leave it to dry completely. This can take a few hours if it is very thick. Once it is dry, brush off the shaving foam to reveal the print on the paper.
So many crafts, so little time. We love to get new ideas from our readers that we can share with the rest of you. If you have a great tutorial or project you'd like to share, e-mail us with a link to your tutorial, or pictures and text that we can post for you!
