This was a labor intensive craft with just me and a pair of scissors.
The craft was inspired by Mr. Panda’s pajamas in Good Night Mr. Panda//Buenas Noches, Sr. Panda by Steve Antony.
Copy the larger donut shapes onto the color of paper you would like for your donuts. Copy the small ring shape onto colorful paper for your icing colors.
Use the scraps from the icing colors to cut sprinkles.
Cut out donut and icing shapes. Cut out center circles for the donut hole.
Use a hole punch to add holes to the donuts and string for garland.
The Bus Driver’s hat was made using the Paper Visor Template from firstpalette. Firstpalette has a number of useful (and free) templates. It’s one of my favorite resources.
Copy the paper visor template onto black paper and cut out.
Copy the top part of the hat onto the desired color of paper.
Cut strips from the remainder of paper to make the headband.
I designed a simple Bus Driver badge in Canva.
First of all, please excuse my dry hands. I blame the pandemic.
This was a hybrid of a 2 different butterfly crafts.
Copy Butterfly template onto black paper (or desired color)
Cut out butterfly and use an X-acto knife to cut along lines to create a space for finger.
Use 2 colors of paper and cut out various shapes for mosaic effect.
Glue mosaic shapes onto butterfly.
This rainbow was inspired by Handmade Charlotte. I definitely think theirs is cuter but I was working with what I had.
Trim the bottom off of a paper plate and then cut out a ‘U’ shape.
Paint on the colors of your rainbow and add face.
Use crepe paper streamers for tails. I cut the lengths in half so they would fit.
Attach a piece of string to the back to display.
