Craft Lab: Pasta Maker Printing
Today's project: Pasta Maker Prints
pasta maker (just the flat rollers--the cutting roller can be missing)
craft foam (sticky back kind works easiest)
cards or cardstock to print on
I happened to own two pasta makers but on one, the cutters never worked very well, so I donated that one to the library for projects just like this one. Valentine's Day (the day after I hosted this event) is a perfect excuse to make some cute cards, so that's what we did! I got the inspiration for this project from the Eric Carle Museum.
Here's what we did:
1. Cut out the shapes you want to print from stick-backed craft foam (remember to cut letters and numbers in reverse!). Mount the shapes onto a piece of cardstock in the design arrangement you want to print. Remember--this piece of cardstock will need to fit through the pasta rollers, so make sure it's not too wide!
