Project #91: Fun Paper Glasses


Fun Glasses by Teri from Giddy Giddy

My contribution this week is a simple afternoon activity: making paper eye-glasses or “fun-glasses” with kids. In our family, these are part of the costume bin.  The glasses alone canhelp transform us into little old ladies, crazy goons, movie-star, robots, etc.


What you'll need:
* 100 or higher cardstock paper that is atleast 13 inches wide
* color transparencies or clear plastic
* tape, scissors, glue & markers/paint
step 1.   
Measure face (temple to temple and also from temple to ear). Use measurements as guide when sketching eyeglass design on cardstock paper
step 2.   
Cut out and fold at corner temples.  
step 3.   
Decorate with paint, sequins, and also tape color transparencies for the shades/glass.

That's it. I hope you make outrageous and fantastic paper glasses!
