Rainbow Cloud SWAPS
Craft foam can be turned into just about anything if your good with scissors and use the right glue. Throw in a pattern and you're good to go with my various foam SWAPS.

I used the trimmed off edges of Thinking Day SWAPS that were printed on colored cardstock to make this rainbow, rather than tossing it in the recycling. Strips of construction paper can also be used, instead. 
For these SWAPS you will need: 
 
  • White craft foam
  • Scrap colored sardstock or construction paper cut into strips
  • Scissors 
  • Permanent markers if desired
  • Safety Pins
  • Tacky Glue
  • the Pattern file
    How to use my patterns
Assembly Instructions
1. Download the document and print the pattern on cardstock. Cut it out carefully to use as a tracing template. 
 
2. Trace the pattern on the craft foam with care. Trace the cloud on white cardstock.
 
3. You can cut the pieces apart from the sheet before cutting them out, which makes it easier.





















 
 
4. Cut colored cardstock or construction paper into thin strips about 2.5-3 inches long. I used the trimmed off edges of Thinking Day SWAPS that were printed on colored cardstock to make this rainbow, rather than tossing it in the recycling.

5. Line the strips of the rainbow colored paper up tightly and glue the cloud to them at an angle as shown below. 
























6. Allow to dry. 

7. Trim the edge of the colored strips as desired. I did a nice straight line, but you could make it wavy or curved. 






























8. Just slip a pin through the craft foam or hot glue a flat backed pin to the backside! These also look great in baggies!
