Today is the first day of Hanukkah and
I made two projects for you today.
The first one is a Flap Card and you can find all about this on the
The other project is this dreidel you see below.
I got the idea when I looked at the Christmas tree
on the blog of Tim holtz.
I used the large rosette die to make this dreidel out of
Club Scrap Tilescapes paper.
For the handle of the dreidle I used a small pencil
(the ones you get at Ikea).
Do take a look at Tim's blog to see how he did
make the rosette in this form.
For decoration I used a spelbinder snowflake die
that shows a Star of David in the middle.
You do see a bulb of glue, but that is to make the dreidle
turn well. The Hebrew letter make a sentence
which means "A great micacle happened there"
(there being in Israel)
With the dreidel we play a game with candy or chocolate money
and all about the game you find here.
The pencil is half covered with blue fibres from the Club Scrap Tilescape kit.
With hot glue (from a glue gun) you can easily positon the
pencil in the middle of the rosette.
and be creative!
