Crystal over at Money saving Mom is having a Make It From Scratch Challenge this week and I thought that I would join in.
I have been wanting to improve my cooking techniques and skills as I have become a lazy chef…( meat, carbs and a portion of frozen veg). This seemed like an ideal opportunity to try out something new.
Ironically though I’m not starting with a recipe! Before we left the UK, K’s godmother gave her and E each a beautiful bracelet. We have been back for 2 1/2 weeks (feels longer…) and we’ve not done anything yet.
Writing the thank you cards was at the top of our To Do List for this week, so it seemed like the perfect starting point for this weeks challenge.
After searching Google images for inspiration. (One day, I’ll join Pintrest…) I struck on the idea of a Japanese themed card. So I grabbed our Origami kit and we got started…
We made some butterflies (and a dinosaur for J) which we stuck onto a card and decorated it with stickers and pens.
The origami took a while and a bit of skill, but the cards were very simple to make and the children had lots of fun doing it. Knowing K’s godmother, she is going to love the fact that the girls have taken the time to make them.
Are you joining in the challenge? If so, what have you made?
