NVCL's 10 Year Anniversary Crafternoon

Last month I partnered with the North Vancouver City Library to help celebrate their 10 year anniversary. We refashioned paper clips into funky pirate themed bookmarks.

I started by making samples using supplies I had on hand - buttons, magnetic letters, etc.



I made this basic bookmark using duct tape and a paperclip.



The workshop was meant to incorporate the overall pirate theme of the anniversary celebration but of course we had unicorns and more pop up in our projects.



It got a bit messy with the felts. This guy covered his hands using all of the Sharpie colours we had on hand.



We had artists of all ages making awesomeness like this cutie.



These two gave their best impersonation of pirates.



We had pirate themed art...



Not sure what this is... I think it's a fridge magnet using magnetic letters.



We had paperclip projects in the works...



Tada! So many awesome art projects...



The sheets of adhesive glitter are always a hit!



DIY button box by one of my craft superstars.



Lots of paperclip bookmark projects...



We even upcycled the staple boxes - everything has potential in the upcycling workshops!



Jose, our renegade crafter, made this sword and shield. He's always making magic happen in the Crafternoons.



And that's it - we had a ton of fun and made crafty goodness happen out of repurposed junk.



Big thanks as always to the North Vancouver City Library for hosting and to Urban Repurpose for donating supplies.
