Paper Flower Power

Filed under: crafts, events — Tags: , , — SCPL Teens @ 6:23 pm
The YA (that’s Young Adult) group at St. Rose made paper flowers the other day.

Above you can see Derricka, Victoria and Danel with some of their handiwork.

The flowers were really simple to make. You just cut out somewhat circular (or not) shapes of tissue paper and thread them onto chenille stems. We used autumn colors to be seasonal. You can get creative by cutting zigzag or lobed edges or snipping the edges into ribbons.

Voila… a loverly flower bracelet and ring!

Below is a beautiful one made by Elizabeth.

Join us the First Friday of each month (usually) for teen crafts at St. Rose from 3-4:30. You can find out what is going on each month by stopping by the front desk or calling (504) 465-0646.

Bookmaking gone Crazy

Filed under: crafts, events — Tags: , , , — SCPL Teens @ 10:46 pm

We had a blast this afternoon making handmade books. We used about 5 or 6 pieces of printer paper for the inside pages and scrapbook paper in cool patterns for the covers. First we stacked our paper together, then folded it in the middle. We had a three hole punch that we used for the holes. We slid our books to the side in the hole puncher and just used two holes.
Then we stretched a rubber band between the holes and secured it with a stick.
Easy as pie. We had cinnamon sticks and regular dowels. The cinnamon sticks were awesome, and I wish we had gotten more of them. But the dowels were pretty too.
These girls are now experts at making books!~
