Ethan’s Crafts:
Making Cool Stuff With Astrobrights!


This post brought to you by Astrobrights Papers by Neenah Paper. All opinions are 100% mine.
With school still out here in Nevada, we’re quickly running out of things to keep this child entertained before our San diego trip in two weeks. Ethan loves his crafts and is always stealing my printer paper to make cool stuff, so, online we went to find something really cool to make!

We sort of stumbled into the AstroBrights papers website and as soon as he saw all the colored paper, he was kind of hooked. AstroBrights is a new line of specialty papers designed for craft projects (perfect for us!) flyers, brochures, invitations, and all that cool, colorful kind of stuff. Since they come in over 20 bright colors he’s decided this is much better than stealing my boring white printer paper. Grandpa over here decided he could also use them to help make his presentations at the fire department stand out a bit.

We looked at a bunch of different things Ethan could make with these new color selections he’s got now and he’s totally hooked on Oragami of all things. We downloaded a few different ‘How To’s” and practiced with the white paper before diving into the super duper colorful stuff. I think we have quite a bit of practincing to go before we’re ready but he’s having a blast trying it his new skills! If you could ‘Make Something Astrobright’ what would be the first thing you’d try out?

Also!! We kind of got lucky! You know I love me a good sweepstakes! Just so happens, Astrobrights recently launched their “Give a Brighter Year” sweepstakes contest going on over at Facebook! Woot! something for me in all this too! Whenyou enter, you could win $30,000 in cash and school supplies for your favorite school (totally cool bonus!) plus a $500 Visa Prepaid card for yourself! I could do amazing things with $500! The sweepstakes is open to US and Canadian residents. So, no ones left out of these shenanigans. For your chance to win, you must “like” AstroBrights Papers on Facebook and follow instructions on the Sweepstakes tab. Really east entry, try it! Ya have sometime to enter too, the last day to enter is September 10th. For a bonus, you can even get one extra entry each week just by filling out a simple survey!

You could win AstroBrights Paper and a Visa card valued $100~$400 by participating in the bi-weekly “Make Something Astrobright” design challenges. I’m thinking our new oragami hobby will be perfect for this one! The first chanllege is to find something that could be made brighter with Astrobrights and post a picture or video of it by midnight July 29. We better get hurrying on it, but I totally think we’ve got it in the bag!
