Fluffy Burger

Hamburger? Beefburger? Woolburger? Looks tasty but... hair ball alert!

pompom Hamburger


Not quite what you'd expect… furry food, but the fluffy pompom burger is an all time favourite with just about everybody who claps eyes on it. There's something hugely unexpected, and very funny about it. You'll need some scraps of material or felt, and wool of about the right colour, to get the best effect, but the download has everything else you need, with an easy to follow explanation of how to make it and templates to cut round to make sure that all the bit fit together. Packs of different coloured felt fabric can be bought at art/craft shops very cheaply and they really finish off this project.
. . . pompom made from a plastic carrier bagAnd now you don't even need wool to make a pompom, so you can get going on this project right away! A great way to reuse those plastic grocery bags, is by using them to make your pompoms. If you tie off the pompom with more plastic bag, then you can still recycle the finished pompom as if it was a normal plastic bag. You can also use black, white or green dustbin liners, or sandwich bags, which come in a range of subtle colours. Plastic bag pompoms will work for any of the Funky Pompom projects on dadcando. To make them all you do is replace the wool steps with the plastic bag. To make it easier to thread, you might want to cut the bag into wide strips, but as long as you can thread the bag through the centre of the discs then it's ok. A plastic bag pompom has a glossy slippery finish that is much softer than you would imagine and is a good alternative to wool.


The pompom instructions and printable graphic templates are so simple to follow. They give amazing results and are available in either A4 or US Letter formats, just click on the size you need to download.

Lovely little MicroBooks
MyPageMenu
range of printed micro books

Sitting in the car on those long journeys back wards and forwards from mum’s to dad’s, going on that special weekend or second holiday with their dad, often kids of separated parents do a lot of traveling and have a lot to keep in their heads. So what better than a little pocket sized notebook to write and sketch down all those important thoughts. These fun little origami MicroBooks are a really simple project that anyone can tackle. They’re easy to fold up and really nice to fill in and keep. They’re perfect for kids because they don’t have loads and loads of pages that will never get written in, and they're small enough to fit in a pocket or a small bag. They've got to be the simplest form of origami on the web.
