I have this lovely message coming up for over an hour tonight...

I dont know what Ive done, but Im hoping that once its had a little rest overnight, it will restore itself to being the helpful little machine Ive come to love... otherwise Im turfing you out computer!!! So I pulling an archive...even though I spent ages writing a post through a throbbing headache *sigh*....

This was art we did an age ago ( like last year) but seeing it again, I think we might do it on Friday!

Yesterdays craft was a fun and easy one, although it was easier still as its one of the ones I prepared last weekend. I get delivered boxes of The Body Shop loveliness at least once or twice a week. And in each box, aside from there being some beautiful smells, there is also a tonne of bubble wrap!

So I tried to think of a way to do bubble printing without it being a complete mess and worked out that if I kept the bubble wrap stiff, it would be easier to paint on and turn over to print..... so last sunday night, I cut cardboard up and covered it with bubble wrap :) Easy :)

Jumeirah was the only taker for this one but the other two will get a chance again on friday.

She covered one side of the bubble wrap in paint

Then flipped it over ( easy to do as it was stiff) and pressed down

Then lifted to reveal a gorgeous bubbly pattern!

She did a whole heap of these.. we both loved the patterns it made.
Good one to use to make wrapping paper. And the best part was, seeing as I sealed the cardboard in so well, I just rinsed them under water and they are good to go again!
If you dont have any bubble wrap on hand, you can buy it from Big W or the post office. We will be using it for more crafts next week.


  1. we are having the same problem with uploading. Glad it's not just me!

  2. I remember this one. I we still haven't tried it flat like that. We have done it taped to a rolling pin. Have you tried that version? It's fun. :)

  3. Hi, the problem is because you need to enable the Picasa service on your google managed domain. Full problem and solution are described here:
