valentines cards

 

 

What you will need:

Fancy papers iridescent and corrugated

Pipe cleaners

Pop sticks

Scissors

(shop eeBoo’s craft line here)

Marker

Hot glue gun

Directions:


Pop stick heart tag

Begin by connecting two pop sticks in a V shape & affix the connecting parts with glue.

Next cut your pop sticks in thirds and glue four connecting pieces to make heart shaped top.

Fill in center with remaining pieces until you are satisfied with heart design.

Use marker to make designs or placing wording on your heart tag.

Last, wrap a pipe cleaner around one of the edges and it is ready to top any love filled gift!

Fancy paper tag

Cut out a tag shape from your corrugated fancy paper, and use this as a guide when cutting your wavy iridescent insert.

Make a small hole at the top of your tag, and insert a fluffy pipe cleaner for the tie.

Take a thin pipe cleaner and shape it into a word- I shaped love which is simple, but you could make a name for the tag which is equally sweet! If you make a mistake, it is easy to go back and untwist.

Tip: make a twist after each letter to anchor and keep it from in winding.

Hot glue iridescent paper to corrugated, then hot glue a few points of your pipe cleaner word onto the iridescent paper.

Clean up any unfinished edges with scissors and remove any hot glue strings.

Felt Cloud Magnet, your #blizzard2016 DIY

Posted by design on Jan 22, 2016 in #craftyweekend, Be Crafty!, Diy

 A fun felt cloud magnet for #craftyweekend- What a great #DIY for the snow storm!

 cloud magnet

What you need:

Simple scissors

Buttons

Cotton balls

Embroidery thread and needle

Hot glue gun

Blue Felt (Pictured with eeBoo’s dart frog + tropical colors)

Magnetic Tape

Directions:

Fold a piece of felt in half and cut out a cloud shape

Use scraps to cut out a skinny rectangle strip

Cut out a rectangle shape from the darker blue (about 1/4 size of your cloud) – cut out the bow edge design you want

Wrap skinny strip around your scrunched rectangle – fluff till your bow looks even and complete – then hot glue strip closed tightly

Take one side of cloud and sew your face or design – don’t want a face, make a scoop design, layer buttons to make a mosaic- your options for this design are only limited by your imagination!

Once your design is complete, it is time to assemble your magnet.

See the sides of your cloud together, face out – leave a small hole

Stuff with cotton balls to give it depth and then continue sewing closed.

Finish by hot gluing your bow to the front – Stick your cloud to your fridge and, voila!

Holiday 2015- eeBoo in the Press

Posted by design on Dec 22, 2015 in Articles we like!, Award, Just for Fun, Press Articles, Product Feature

Holiday 2015 has been a bustling season for eeBoo in the press! Good Housekeeping loved our Greenmarket Game so much, that they awarded it as a best kid-tested toy of 2015. Meanwhile, over at the Today Show, the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio named our decidedly low-tech Giant Floor Puzzle as the winner in their Best Toy 2015 series, as it scored the highest among several toys closely reviewed by children, meaning it is fun to look at and easy to play with! Our Noisy Ball continues to be a distinct choice for children under a year to play with,  as Parents Magazine included it in their roundup of American Baby’s Best Toys of 2015, and eeBoo classic, About Face has a shining moment on HLN weekend express as a best toy for children with special needs with its endless combination of objects to create expressions!
