Kid Made Modern Project

We made our first project from Todd Oldham's Kid Made Modern.


The girls chose the duct tape satchels.  They picked out the colors, I cut the strips of tape and then they applied them to the priority mail envelopes.


I had some extra priority mail envelopes, so I made a sample one before we made theirs.  I think the project would have taken a lot longer if I hadn't gone through the process before hand.  Plus, seeing a finished product got the girls even more excited about making their own.  I ended up cutting their envelopes down even smaller than what the instructions suggested.  Can you see the size difference between the sample satchel and their satchels?


 They brought their satchels with them to the coffee shop the other day. They got to sit at their own table too.  Their own satchel and their own table.  I think it made them feel very grown up.
