Nothing says Happy______ Day like a homemade card. Since, Mother’s Day is this week I thought this post would be only appropriate. I think every Mother in the world appreciates a handmade card, no matter what age you are. The fun part about a card made from home is rummaging through your recycle bin, craft boxes, and art supplies.
I used leftover wedding invitations (we printed a few too many) and simply covered the printed side with fabric scraps or wrapping paper. I then brought out my paints, fabric box, art pens, brushes, and had fun. I made 7 different types of card in under 30 minutes. Yes, I sometimes reference the time things take to encourage people that all can be done. On another side note: most of my projects happen while I am editing photos, cleaning house, making dinner, or designing a project.
I hope you enjoy creating a piece of art for your special someone. Next week, I will share with you recycled gift-wrapping ideas.
Let your little ones make their own cards. Gather supplies, put on some music and let them go crazy. Watch their creativity emerge!
