|Food Art #336|
Last week happened to be the birthday of his form teacher, Ms Josie and some of the kids actually gave her presents. After school, my son told me that he too wanted to make a gift for Ms Josie. A box! Yeah, a box for his teacher he insisted. I then asked him why it has to be a box? He replied that Ms Josie wanted a box to put her things. I was quite baffled that the teacher requested for it. (Afterwhich, I learnt from his Chinese teacher, she had read a story about a box to the children. Probably that was the reason why he thought of a box as a gift.) Back home, he searched our shoe cabinet for empty boxes. Mommy usually kept a couple of nice shoe boxes whenever she buys new shoes. A habit I could not explain why ;P We decided to use his kiddy shoe box; old and dusty. Not for long....after we transformed it.
First, I told me son to wipe off the dust with a dam cloth. Then, I took out my art and craft barang (a Malay word for stuff) and let him chose the materials to dress up the box.
- An old shoe box of any size
- A red colour wrapping paper (which I collected from Christmas shopping last year)
- A paper daisy (from Grandma and she also could not remember how on earth she got it)
- Black felt for the base
- Stickers, stencils, colour papers or any decorative items you can find
