Greeting Cards

Did you know you can make your own greeting cards? More specifically, you can help your child maker her own greeting cards. The stores now sell card kits where you can print your own invitations and such on your computer at home. If you purchase a couple of these card kits, you can use the cards to make handmade greeting cards. I bought my sets at the local dollar store. (I just love that place.)

To make your cards, you need to have a variety of art supplies. Chip board items used for scrap booking is a good option, as is silk flowers and decorative stamps. Buttons, sequins, and other artistic additions can be used in your design, as well. Let your imagination, and your child's imagination, be your guide to this wonderful creation.

Your friends and family will definitely enjoy receiving their own handmade greeting cards. Making these cards can become a weekly tradition or just something to do once in a while. You can even make a collection of blank cards to give as gifts.

My daughter and her friends all make their cards, for birthdays..parties or whatever may come up. They enjoy it a lot more than a store bought card. My daughter hangs the cards she receives up in her room. Keepsakes and wall art. Can't beat that with a Hallmark card!
