Synopsis

Brilliant Badges to Make Yourself 25 Amazing Step-by-step Badge-making Projects by Petra Boase

This title features 25 amazing step-by-step badge-making projects. It features great ideas for making your own badges, including how to create a dotty dinosaur, a papier-mache cat, a funky bow tie, a lollipop and a birthday badge. It shows you how to make designs that use everyday materials, from sweets and sequins, to buttons and bows. It contains ideal projects for 8 to 12 year-olds, with simple designs to start off with, leading to more challenging ones for older kids. Over 150 photographs, with clearly explained instructions, show you what to do every step of the way. This is an exciting collection of fun-to-make badges that kids will love to create and wear themselves or give away to friends. With original ideas and designs like Felt Scotty Dog, Driftwood Boat, Fluffy Snowman and Paper Flower there are plenty of badges to inspire creative boys and girls of all ages. A clear and helpful introduction explains the materials you will use, like papier mache, salt dough, fake fur, glitter, buttons and paints. Techniques such as how to make dough and how to trace designs are included, together with easy-to-follow instructions for each project, whether it's painting, sticking or cutting. With lots of different badges for lots of situations - to keep or give as unique presents - each project is illustrated with step-by-step photographs and a clear picture of every finished badge.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
