Welcome to the new site!


Hi All! Welcome to my blog.  My name is Laura and I am currently a stay at home mom, substitute teacher, and as I like to call it a, “Cut and Paste Artist,” working through the wonderful Teacher’s Pay Teacher’s website where I am the proud store owner of Crafty Bee Creations. 
My niche on this website is creating cut and paste projects where I provide teachers with directions and patterns to easily replicate my creations in their own classroom.  The great thing about my patterns is they are set up so teachers can easily put them through a copier and copy them directly onto colored paper.  Then all they have to do is pass the copied patterns out to their students and let the cutting and gluing begin.  For students who can trace the patterns themselves I also provide templates that can be copied on to cardstock and used as tracers. To show you an example of my work check out my Apple Freebie below and download it here:

 This of course is one of my very basic patterns but it represents the quality of my work.  I have been creating patterns for over ten years for a preschool program and believe in making patterns that are size appropriate with clean lines for students to cut.  I try to keep the patterns spaced out so that you are getting the most you can out of a sheet of construction paper while students are still getting enough construction paper to turn their paper appropriately while cutting.  All of my cut and paste projects are set up the same (Cover Page, Picture of Project, Directions, Cardstock Templates, Construction Paper Templates, & Credits) so you will always know what you are getting when your purchase something from me. 
* Please Note: If something is marked as a craftivity it will typically include a writing prompt and other worksheets which are not included in a  cut and paste project.
