Start by writing down the plot to a story and then simplify it! In this example, I chose Alice in Wonderland. To learn how to make your own craft paper view my video. (CLICK)
Begin diving into your craft paper by cutting out different shapes and objects to create scenes from the story.
Glue your papers down as you figure out what you want on each page. I used hot glue for a sturdier hold.
Draw your characters and color them in. I cut the characters out and used a normal glue stick on white cardstock, then placed them in scene.
Use a thick piece of cardboard or another material that is thick enough to be your hardback cover.
Place each page in order like you would see in a book, with pages 1 and 2 facing down together and 3 and 4 doing the same, then so on. Using the tape or ribbon, hot glue it on the outside inner edges where the spine will be. Do the same to all pages. Hot glue the front cover to the back of page 1, and the back cover to the back of the last page. Easy binding!
Last fall I was department head of hair and makeup for a feature film, Toby Goes To Camp. It’s about a white bangle tiger that goes to a performing arts camp in the summer. Cute right? For the film I created 5 boho dapper looks that could easily be worn out at night in the city! Which look would you like to see turned into a tutorial DIY video? Comment below and I will make a video for you!
Like the hair pieces? I made them! DIY coming soon!
A fun way to use and reuse your watercolor scraps is to make your own custom greeting cards. Simply cut out different shapes. Hot glue for a solid hold and quicker dry. I used different size hole punchers, cut out different shapes like hearts or abstract triangles and squares. Super easy and fun! this can take anywhere from 30 minutes to hours depending on how many cards you make! Your friends and family will love them because its the thought that counts right? -Angela
