This is a project by the amazing Cassie Stephens (check her blog out if you haven't already..... seriously). We started off by folding a sheet of paper in half. They then drew a pattern on at least one side (they could do a pattern on both sides if they wished). They then painted each half a different color. Then we used some tools to scrape away paint (similar to how you make paste paper). We then painted a donut and used the back of our brush to carve some frosting into it. The next class, we folded doilies in half and cut them and shared them with a partner. We cut out our donut and added some puffy paint to it, as well as some 'sprinkles (rice that was dyed with rubbing alcohol and food coloring). Lastly, we glued our donut and doilie on top of our background.
