Thanks to everyone who submitted tutorial request.
It is my goal both personally and as your friend to keep these tutorials as SIMPLE as possible. I don't like any thing that's too difficult or too long to complete. It needs to be interesting and FUN!
I am going to start off with a request from Jan. She saw the Talent Show Nicki and Saige were part of and she wants to know how EASY the Amphitheater is to make.
- cardboard, poster board or foam board
- Scrapbook paper in your choice of color/print
- glue stick
- hot glue (low temp)
Directions: Using glue stick, apply enough to make sure you paper is secure to your board; smoothing out any wrinkles or bubbles.
Make signs for your occasion by cutting out bunting from contrasting paper then writing your event or the name of your amphitheater on each triangle. Hot glue using a low temp glue gun onto twine, ribbon or cording (even shoelaces).
I cut out the American Girl logo from a small store bag to make my AG sign. You can also use AG stickers from Michael's if you so choose.
For your "staging" area, simply lay down scrapbook paper in natural print like pebbles, wood flooring or grass. You can even make a checker board floor - it's entirely up to you how you want your amphitheater to look.
Finally "fill in" and decorate the side of your stage with props. Select props to go along with your theme. I used small plants, but you can use flags, trees, or potted plants/greenery.
