Oh, Martha Stewart. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…

Our May Memorial Day craft comes to you courtesy of Martha Stewart’s webpage, where detailed directions on how to make our lovely, patriotic wind streamer can be found.

Supplies:

– blue construction paper

– red and white ribbon

– white, cut-out stars

– glue sticks

– cardboard oatmeal containers

– a box cutter

You’ll need to make use of your Ellison Die machine for this one. I highly recommend pre-cutting both the stars and the ribbons to their appropriate lengths. It will also take a fair amount of time to cut the bottoms out of the oatmeal containers. Make sure you do so ahead of time to avoid pressure at the last minute.

This craft is a lot of fun and is pretty user-friendly. It also appeals to a wide age range; both our preschoolers and elementary-aged students enjoyed this one. 🙂
