240 Albain, Caia 701 I decided that I was going to do a graduation card set based off of the fact that I was invited to so many grad parties this summer.

I used a Cricut Joy for the design work making the cards 4.25” by 5.5”. Once the design was cut out, I placed in card inserts (sized 4” by 5.25”) for the second color. The red insert was sparkly and the green card had a holographic insert. Blue Krazy Kids

Folk Arts 63 / Paint By Number / 04: 15-19 years old
127 Fisher, Alexis 328 Before beginning my Paint by Numbers project I collected all of the supplies that I would need to complete the painting. The skill level of this Paint by Number is Advanced because of the small details and having to mix the paints in order to come up with certain colors. I set out my paint brushes, a palette to put the single colors and to mix the complex colors, newspaper for my painting table, paper towels and a glass of water to clean my brushes. I started with the first number and worked my way to the last number. I had to be careful when mixing the colors that I made enough to complete all the spots so there wouldn't be a difference in color. This project took me almost a month to complete since it had to completely dry in between colors. After the painting was done I put it in a frame with a hanger and saved the box for display.

128 Fisher, Brandon 462 I made my Triangle Peg Game in shop class at school for a project. Here are the steps of how I made the game: - I cut a 6" by 6" by 6" triangle out of a piece of wood and sanded the sides. - Next I cut 15 1" pieces out of a long piece of 3/8 dowel rod and sanded the top and bottom of each piece. - Finally I drilled out 15 holes with a drill bit and sanded the top of the game so it would be smooth. I think the hardest part of my project was making sure all of the 1" dowel pieces were exactly the same size. Here are the instructions to my game: Remove one peg from the board. Next jump one peg over another into an empty hole. The peg that is jumped over is removed. You keep doing this until there is only one peg or no more moves. To win the game there must be only one peg left on the board. Blue Monroe Country Kids 4-H Club

I had to be careful to make sure all of the nails were the same height. After picking out my string colors I tied a knot on one of the nails and used the first color to string the rocket. I did the same with the second color to string the flame on the rocket. I put a hanger on the back to complete the project. Blue Monroe Country Kids 4-H Club
192 Aerts, Stellamia 637 For my project I made a horse sign. I used black chalk board paint, multiple paper flowers, Jess and beads, ribbon and a part if a bracelet.
