Still in post-Christmas disorientation, but wanted to share with you one of our handmade (cardboard) gifts. Especially since I feel bad that cardboard has been so underrepresented of late, here on the blog. It's just not right.
Emily made this clapperboard, and I helped. She wanted to make something for Jenna out of cardboard so we schemed together to make a clapperboard for the numerous movies that Jenna does on her little videocamera. It's cardboard, about half an inch thick, and swings open with a Makedo hinge.
We stuck chalkboard paper on the lower part, and drew on permanent lines and text with correction fluid and silver ink. The rest of the clapperboard is wrapped in black construction paper and embellished with white printer paper stripes.
Here is Kate holding it, before it got wrapped up.
And here is Kate demonstrating its use:
Jenna was thrilled to get it (after we explained to her what it was)!
