Jaylene came home from school with some Spirelli string art shapes and we made them into cards.
Light chipboard shapes (from cereal boxes etc) cut out with pinking shears (scisors that leave the triangle shape, if you don’t have any, just cut notches from the shape yourself)
card making goodies (we used deco tape mostly)
Tape one end of the string to the back side of the shape, and start winding. Try alternating and skipping to create different designs. When you’re done, tape the other end of the string to the back.
We glued some together so that both sides had the string designs on them, and put them in cards with “windows” (a shape cut out of the front). You could also do something like that and make a mobile.
