Tuesday Tidbit

In honor of the upcoming tribute to dads, AKA Father's Day that is fast approaching this coming Sunday, this week the Tuesday Tidbit will highlight a cute and easy craft you can do with kids for dad.

Pink Haired Momma went a hunting for something special and cool for Hubbs-to-be for this Father's Day. And since he reads this blog daily I want be sharing with the world his Father's Day treat until next week. LOL!

Instead I found this really cute way to not only make something cool with the kiddos, but also recycle and not spend much money! Fabulous!

It is a CD Photo Frame!!

Nancy F. of Arizona son made this for his daddy
So what do you need?
Old Compact Disk
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup water
Double Stick Tape
Adhesive Backed Felt
Tacky Glue
Scrap of Cardboard
And what do you do?
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt and water. Mix well, kneading with hands. if mixture is too sticky add a small amounts of flour until you have a doughy consistency. Be careful not to add too much, it can dry too quickly and crack. Mold a base for your photo frame. Make sure that it is at least 1" deep and 2" around. Make it any shape you want. Use cardboard or a table knife to make a slot in your base. Go at least half way down through base and wiggle it back and forth a little to widen. Bake on a cookie sheet for 2 - 2.5 hours or air dry overnight. Paint the base whatever color you like and let dry.Cut photo into a 3" circle. Attach it to CD with double face tape. Cover the back of the CD with sticky back felt. Use tacky glue to secure in into slot in base.

And where did Pink Haired Momma find this lovely idea?
