·Cinnamon (obviously! 😉heehee)
·Glue (simple craft glue like Elmers, nothing special! NOT gluesticks!!)
·Hole Punch (optional)
·Ribbon or String (optional)
·Christmas Tree (very optional)
Yo! This is how you make a Cinnamon Smelly, invented by Ruby Laraine (moi!):
Step One: Mix one part glue with two parts cinnamon. You don't need much, but I recommend low-quality cinnamon... Stir well!
Step Two: With the pencil, trace whatever shape you wish your Cinnamon Smelly to be. Simple shapes, such as a cat head (oval with ears), circle, or star are better (or at least easier) than a complicated sketch of your favorite lake, including all the microscopic organisms and each drop of dust.
Step Three: Cut out the cardboard base, and dip it in the cinnamon/glue mixture. You may wish to use a fork or something to spread it around; smooth it down.
Step Four: Set in a sunny place to dry. It may curl up a teeny bit at the edges, depending on what kind of cardboard you used.
Step Five (optional): When it is dry, hole-punch a hole in whatever place works best. String the ribbon through the hole, and tie to make a sort of loop. When positioning he hole, note how it hangs.
Step Six (very optional): Hang on a Christmas Tree as an ornament.
Step Seven (if Step Six was not carried out): Find a place to display your creation!! A few ideas: dashboard of your car, leaned on your desk, on a shelf, or tape it to the wall!
Step Eight (very important!!): Sniff. Relax. Enjoy!
You are an amazing being. Live life well.
