Fiskars Summer Lemonade Stand Projects
Stamps and stencils are crafting tools that you can tweak for any project that you do -- there's no limit to the size or shape! Check out how a little DIY turns the components of your child's lemonade stand from super to super duper!
- Time:about an hour
1Stencil Making 101: Trace desired shape in preferred size onto on a piece of cardboard. Cut the piece out. Voilà! You have your stencil!
If you feel confident in drawing lemons directly on the cardstock without a stencil, go for it! See our suggestions in steps 4 and 5 for adding details to the lemons and making cute mason jars and cupcake tags!
2Using 'Stenciling 101' on the Mason Jars: Trace a shape resembling a whole lemon on a piece of cardboard. (Tip: Picture a lemon as a three inch diameter football with knobs at the end, instead of a football's pointed edges.) Cut the piece of cardboard out and trace as many lemon shapes are needed on the cardstock. Add details such as the "bumps" on the lemon's peel with the marker. Punch a 1/4 inch circle on one end of the lemon. Cut a 18 inch piece of jute for each mason jar. Feed the jute through the hole in the lemon cutout. Remove the lid from the mason jar. Tie the jute around the area of the mason jar that's normally covered by the lid. Trim excess jute. Add candies to the mason jars and stickers to the cutouts that are appropriate to your lemonade stand's theme!
3Cupcake Tags: Bake and ice a batch of cupcakes (or if you're pressed for time, buy some at the store). Trace a circle in desired size and quantity on the cardstock using the Fiskars stencil. Cut circles out. Add details to the lemon, such as the rind and seed, with the marker. Put a dab of glue on the back of each circle and adhere it to the toothpick. Stick the toothpick into the cupcake's icing.
4Making Stamps 101: Use a pencil to trace the object you want a stamp of onto the non-stick side of a piece of self-adhesive kids foam. Cut out the shape using scissors. Peel off the foam's self-adhesive and put the form onto something with a bit of height to it for stamping, such as the lid to a gallon of milk.
5Applying 'Stamping 101' to the Door Hanger: Trace a two inch circle onto the kids foam. Cut the circle in half, then in half again, and once more. You now have eight pie pieces. Peel off self-adhesive backing and assemble onto the lid for stamping. Place the stamp aside for a moment. Trim the first piece of cardstock so it is 10 inch x 3 inch. Trim the second piece so it is 9 inch x 2 inch. Glue the two pieces together so that the smaller piece is on top of the larger piece. Be sure to smooth out any wrinkles before the glue dries. Then use the circle cartridge in conjunction with the Everywhere Punch Window System to add a circle opening through both pieces of cardstock for a door hanger. Cut a slit from inside the circle to the outer edge to feed onto doorknobs. Use the foam brush to evenly spread Daffodil Yellow paint onto your stamp, then stamp a corner of the door hanger. When paint has dried, add the details such as the when and where of your lemonade stand with the marker.
