Don’t you just love this cute pasta lion card? With all the hot weather we’ve had this week, crafting has been the last thing on our mind. Thankfully it’s been a cooler today and we decided it was time to wheel the craft drawers back out, especially as we had a birthday card we needed to make! We wanted to make something a bit different and just love how this turned card turned out.
Here’s what we used
- Dry pasta
- Orange paint
- Coloured paper (pink and beige)
- Black marker
- Eye stickers
How to make our cute pasta lion card
Take your pasta and cover it in your orange paint before putting it aside to dry.
Whilst your pasta is drying it’s time to make the lions face. To make your face shape draw a circle and then add two semi-circles near the top as you can see above. Once you have your shape, cut it out.
Cut out and glue down two small semi circles for the ears and a triangle for the nose.
Give your lion two eyes and then use your marker to draw on a mouth and some whiskers.
Once your pasta is dry, take your piece of card and fold it in half. Glue your lion’s face onto the card, then use a generous amount of glue to secure your pasta in a circle around the head to make the mane. Add your personalised message and your lion card is finished! Doesn’t he look fab?
