Now that I’m pretty sure everyone has received, I can post my thaumatropes. I joined the happy mail craft-a-long, which is delightful fun. However, I’m not known for my skills in chit chat, whether in the written or verbal form.
I decided it was far easier for me to send a package of small crafted items and surprises appropriately named the Boredom Buster Box. I pretended of course that the package came from a company called the Bird Emporium of which I and @Jae3ird are the owners and operators. Obviously.
Anyhow my favorite item I included was the thaumatropes.
These were made from cardboard I recycled from the postage stamps I ordered and yarn that I had around the house. I cut out circles and brushed white acrylic paint on both sides and then drew my images first in pencil and then in pen, and colored in the images with watercolor.
They were delightful fun.
