Paper scraps greeting cards

I told you we love making greeting cards , did I :)

We are travelling to Poland this week so I thought it would be nice to make some cards for the family members who support us in many ways.
As a mother I love when Ela is involved as much as possible in any crafts , therefore the idea for the cards was very simple and easy yet stylish at the same time.
Again , reusing what we have was important.
This time the main item was a paper scraps .
It's one of those things I always keep ;)
Coloured card stock , wrapping paper, printed craft paper etc.

Lets have a look at what we used for our little project :
- paper scraps
- A4 thick white photo paper
- black Sharpie marker pen
- double sided padded tape

Step 1.
Get you child to draw the flowers on a paper scraps .
Many flowers, all kinds of flowers!They don't need to be perfect, a childish look is what make them cute I think ;)

Step 2.

Cut all the flowers out, yourself.
Perfectly at the same time as drawing , flower by flower , so non of you get bored ;)
Flower is still a tricky shape to cut out for five years old , you will do it quicker.
Not too neatly , remember childish is what we want!

Step 3.
Cut the tape and get your kid to stick the flowers on a folded in half white thick A4 paper.


No Ela, that is not enough :)

Sure mama, sure...

Factory mode on ...

but with a joy :)

Ela needed some brake from sitting.
Well, that's almost done...

Step 4.
Draw a stems.
I decided to add some simple stems myself so they straight and neat ;)

There you have it ,
our paper scrap greeting cards !

I think they really cute , what do you think?

Very easy and enjoyable :)

Happy crafting!

  3. Hi! I just wanted to thank you for sharing this tutorial. I hand make cards for a charity here in Australia, and needed some ideas. I followed your instructions and made about 30 of these to give away. They turned out lovely - and please thank Ela for showing me how to draw flowers! I had to learn from her different flower kinds, they are wonderful! The cards I made will be given to kids in hospital and I am sure they will bring some smiles!
