DIY Giant Dice Games with Rinea

Hello crafty friends!



Today I have for you another red, white & blue patriotic project using Rinea Foiled Paper - a Dice Game with TWO OPTIONS to play!

OPTION 1 - Adults Only Drinking Game
OPTION 2 - Exercise HIIT Workout

Now - I will start with a disclaimer to please drink responsibly and most importantly, NEVER drink and drive.  

Not into drinking games? Use it to do a HIIT Workout!

Keep on reading to see how it will work.

I used the Ruby Starstruck Foiled Paper, the BRAND NEW Cobalt/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and the Arctic Starstruck Foiled Paper for this project. You will also need a 3" cube (I had one in my stash, but you would use a small gift box or something similar) and glue.

Step 1 - cut your foiled paper!
I simply cut 3"x 3" squares of each of the three colors.

  

Step 2 - adhere to your cube!
I used some Tombow Adhesive to glue my Rinea papers to the cube sides. Make sure to glue as close the edge as possible so it doesn't start peeling.

   

Step 3 - add your numbers!
I used a 1" Circle punch to cut dots from my scrap foiled paper to make the numbers. The appropriate number of dots were added to each side of the giant dice to add the number 1 through 6.

 


Step 4 - play your game!
Ok!  Now you are ready to play. So here are the rules: for the DRINKING GAME:

Roll a 1 - YOU take a drink
Roll a 2 - the person to your RIGHT will take a drink
Roll a 3 - you GIVE a drink to a person of your choice
Roll a 4 - the person to your LEFT will take a drink
Roll a 5 - EVERYONE drinks
Roll a 6 - YOU drink twice

Not into drinking? Here is an EXERCISE alternative! 
Do each exercise for 1 minute, then roll again!  Do that 30 times and you have a 30 minute workout!

Roll a 1 - run in place
Roll a 2 - push-ups
Roll a 3 - jumping jacks
Roll a 4 - squats
Roll a 5 - crunches
Roll a 6 - burpees

I hope you have fun with whatever option you choose!

Patriotic Pinwheels with Rinea

Hello crafty friends!


I hope you are enjoying your quarantine downtime - I actually have enjoyed it a lot! I'm making some changes, letting go of some activities and really honing in on what I LOVE to do - which is mainly crafts, Cosmetology, Zumba and cooking!

Today I have for you a simple, fun for kids project to celebrate the 4th of July (or even Canada Day!) using Rinea Foiled Paper - pinwheels!

You don't need a ton of supplies for this project either - scissors, a ruler, some brads, pencils (or skewers), some hot glue....and of course, your RINEA Foiled Paper!  No special cutting equipment needed at all.

I used the Ruby Starstruck Foiled Paper, the BRAND NEW Cobalt/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and the Arctic Starstruck Foiled Paper for these pinwheels.

Step One:
Cut your squares! I used 3x3, 4x4 and 6x6 sizes to make these pinwheels.

Step Two:
Measure out the center using a ruler and draw a line from each cornder towards center up to about 1" from the middle.

  

Step 3:
Cut along the lines!


Step 4:
Fold every other corner in towards the middle and secure with a brad.

  

Step 5:
Adhere to a stick of choice using hot glue. I used leftover school supply pencils and skewers - I really wanted to upcycle what I had on hand!  Now, if you would like these pinwheels to actually spin, you can use a thumbtack or pushpin and push into the eraser of the pencil (just make sure to trim the back of the pin off so it isn't sharp and sticking out of the back!).

  

Step 6: (optional!)
Add some fun ribbon!


There you have it! Simple, patriotic pinwheels! You could use them to decorate your 4th of July partyscape, tuck one onto a birthday present as a bow (don't use the stick!), or just put them in your flowerbed for your party!

Creative Knockouts Challenge #347 - Friendship

Hello crafty friends!

It's time for a new challenge over at Creative Knockouts Challenge #347. Our theme this week is "Friendship" and our sponsor is "The Artsy Stamper". 

I chose to work with a stamp set called “Koi Pond”. I’m very lucky to have a rubber version of this stamp in my stash from (the now retired) SparkleNSprinkle, but you can still grab the digital version here.

Here is what I created:


I love simple cards that yield stunning results. I did a quick watercolor “smoosh” background on watercolor paper, then let dry. Once it was dry, I stamped my images. To do this with the digital version, you would print your images first, the do the smooshed background. Easy peasy! I also added a quick shot of shimmer spray.

I hope to see you at the challenge. Challenges are a great way to bust out of a creative funk - or just to have fun and maybe win a prize or two!

Until next time,

Jess
