Paper Plate Porthole


I love this craft for kids! It would be so cute for a classroom! Imagine all the ‘schools’ of fish!!

For each porthole, you’ll need:

  • 2 paper plates
  • several goldfish crackers
  • 8 cheerios
  • craft/school glue
  • markers for the grass (or silk grasses)
  • grey paint
  • blue cellophane
  1. Cut a circle out of one plate.
  2. Glue cheerios around the hole. Let dry.
  3. Draw grasses, then glue fish onto other plate. Let dry.
  4. Paint the cheerio plate grey, let dry.
  5. Tape cellophane into underside of cheerio plate. Glue the plates together.



Sunflower Stitched Greeting Card

Dainty and lovely.


You’ll need:


  • Punching Awl
  • Pattern for Sunflower to punch
  • Cork board: For punching holes in card – found at kitchen or office store (try a cork hot plate)
  • Thread: I usually use DMC floss, with all six strands
  • Needle: Cross-stitch needle #26 for 18-22 count fabric
  • Cardstock: white piece, accent color piece, folded card piece
  • Envelope: white envelope that measures, 4 ½ “ x 5 ¾ “
  • Glue: Glue stick, glue dots, spray glue is recommended
