So, for last year's CSLP theme, Make a Splash! I had my dad make me a simple wooden frame that would hold a sheet of plywood with a hole in the middle for kids to get their photo taken. I figured I could re-paint the sheet for each year's theme. Last year, I came up with this guy:
He was pretty popular around my library!
I've been stuck on what to do for this year though--My drawing skills are fairly limited, and I've been searching for inspirations.
Enter the party/design blog, "Oh Happy Day" and this GENIUS idea: Use a projector and an image from the 'net (or clipart)! Project the image, trace, and voila! My stand is nice, but cardboard would be great too since it's just for summer.
Who doesn't have a projector at their library?! Easy peasy.
Now I just have to find a little extra time to do it :)
