Paper Plate Crafts and Tuesday Tutorials Week 28

This week I’m sharing crafts made with one of our favourite materials, the humble paper plate! We always have plenty in our cupboards ready to call on to keep the kids occupied on a rainy day. Re-using household materials is always a great way to craft, and paper plates are brilliant either on their own or as part of a wider junk modelling project. I hope these paper plate crafts can give you some inspiration and new ideas.  If you try something new, come back and link it up with us here on Tuesday Tutorials!
