Minnie mouse clips - DIY

Hello there,
        I made these lil minnie mouse clips.They were easy to put together and took me just 15 minutes.To make these you'll need -

- Velvet cloth of your colour choice
- Some ribbon
- Clips
- Glue gun

First of all,cut the velvet in a minnie mouse shape.For this either, use a template available on the net or draw a circle for the face and two smaller circles for the ears.

 Next make bows out of ribbons.

Now just glue everything into place and you're done.Your clip is ready to be used by some darling girl....Easy peasy it is.Isn't it?

Wheels on the bus prop / School bus prop

Hi everyone,

We made a bus prop for the popular nursery rhyme "The wheels on the bus".For this we took a small carton and covered it up with the brown tape.However my advice to you is to use a clear tape for the brown tape bled colour afterwards and we had to do double layers of the yellow paper.So cover the carton completely with transparent tape to give it strength.

Then cover it up completely with yellow chart paper.And paste white paper to make windows and doors.The frame of the windows has been made by using some black tape.The lights are circles cut out of red velvet cloth and the wheels are again of some thin card with black paper pasted on them.As it is made from recycled material we pasted some cartoon figures cut out from some local kids magazines (Junior chandamama).Finally make holes on the top part and insert ribbons to let a child wear it as can be seen in the pics below.

This is how this is to be worn by a child.

Hope it helps if you plan to make one.
