Making paper dragons to celebrate Chinese New Year

Brrrrr! it was cold Wednesday night but a few families still turned out for a really fun project. These paper dragons were as fierce as any I've seen with fire coming out of their snouts and a row of very sharp looking teeth. 

We used a 6" paper plate, paper towel tube and a white sandwich bag as the base, added shredded paper from the diamond cutter and tissue paper cut into strips for the embellishments.

The Family Arts & Crafts group meets at the Wells Branch Community Library every Wednesday night at 6 pm taught by Dianne Koehler. The program lets us turn donated or recyclable materials and imagination into great projects.
