1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Craft paper and foam board on: February 21, 2009 01:54:15 PM
I have a question about the best way to attach foam board to craft paper. 

I'm decorating my classroom door for Read Across America week and I have the door covered in craft paper.  I really want to carve some foam board and attach it to the door for a nice 3-D effect.  It's rather thin, 3/16 in (5mm) thick, but basically the whole door would be covered.  I can't decide if it would be best to glue the board to the paper on the door or use double stick tape, or both.  I would hate for panels to pop off anytime I open the door.  I can't do/use anything that would damage the door, and it will only be up for 4 days.  Any suggestion would be great.

this is so awesome  Grin  I was laughing so hard reading this, and then my mum wanted to know what was so funny.  I tried to read it to her, but wound up laughing to the point of tears and could hardly speak.  she thinks it's awesome too  Wink   we have a few resin squirrels around the house and they all have either masks or capes, never thought of a mustache though!

Thanks everyone  Smiley  This took a couple hours to make and is so cute, I'm sad to see it go, but I think this will be easier to ship than a diaper cake or wreath, so it's worth it  Tongue  If anyone makes one of these, post it! it's great to see different versions  Cheesy

My cousin is having her first baby shower, and being the crafty one in the family, I wanted to do something special.  I looked around at diaper cakes and diaper wreaths when I stumbled across a baby bouquet. After much searching I found how to make them, so here is my take at a baby bouquet.

I added 3 board books I found at Target.  She loves frogs, hence the ribbon and box decoration  Smiley

Basic tutorial:

a wooden box
plastic/silk leaves and small flowers
baby clothes (I used all white, 8 socks, 5 onesie's, 3 kimono style shirts)

I painted frogs, her favorite animal

and here's how it looks on the box-

The back and inside I painted the same color as the frogs.  Then I made my bouquet based off this tutorial:  http://www.marthastewart.com/article/baby-bunch-bouquet

Here's a onesie, a sock, and a shirt

and here's 14 flowers grouped into 9 bunches.

I cut an old shoe box to fit inside the box and poked 9 holes to hold the flowers.

Here's how it looks with all the flowers:

To hide the stems, I placed tissue paper around the inside, two sheets, one fluffed up, and one fluffed down.

There you go, hope you enjoy!  Cheesy
