When they were small, this type of game kept my kids occupied when waiting in line or on long car trips. They are great for tucking into a birthday party treat bag or for use as a classroom party craft.
DIGITAL PAPER/ELEMENTS – ADDICTED TO YOU BY MADAME WING
METAL TIN WITH SEE-THROUGH LID
1/8th INCH HOLE PUNCH
EMBROIDERY FLOSS, RIBBON
Using Photoshop and various paper/elements from the ADDICTED TO YOU kit, I cut circles for the inside of the tin, strips that will go around the edge of the tin and gift tags. Metal tins come in a variety of sizes but the one used was about 3 inches in diameter and the circles were made about 2.8 inches so they would just fit inside. You want the edges of the circle to fit up against the tin so that the beads don’t fall beneath the paper. The strips for the edging were 1/2 inch for this tin. Print on a heavier weight card stock.
Trim out all the pieces.
Adhere the edging around the bottom part of the tin.
Place dimensionals on the back side of the solid color circle.
Place it inside the bottom of the tin.
Punch holes in various places on the top circle.
Add dimensionals to the back of the circle and place inside the bottom of the tin on top of the background.
Choose beads that are round and slightly bigger than the punched holes. They need to be small enough to nestle in the holes but large enough so they won’t fall through.
Grab the floss/ribbon and the top of the tin.
Adhere the top of the tin to the bottom with a little glue or double sided tape if it isn’t a screw on lid.
How many beads can you get in the holes at one time?
Hope you have fun with this one!
