Create a stunning sunshine card! This design combines lots of children’s two favourite things; sticking and pasta. Painted pasta twists are the perfect way to create a 3D sunshine that will brighten up Mother’s Day morning very nicely.
A ladybird for a special lady…
Little hands can get nice and busy creating this super-sweet ladybird card, complete with a personalised photo hiding under the wings. To make it you’ll need red and black card, black paint, two split pins and a photograph. The wings are created by drawing and cutting around the shape of the child’s hands and then decorated with little fingerprints, to ensure their card is as unique as they are!
Cupcake cases are very versatile little things, as well as housing buns, they can also be used to make this really eye-catching daffodil card. It’s easy to create, very seasonal and children will enjoy cutting, sticking and perhaps even painting their cheerful little masterpiece once it’s done.
Loveheart Tree Card
This three-dimensional work of art turns regular pieces of card into a really striking and super-sweet design. Simple blue and green make up the background, a cut out handprint makes the trunk and branches and then it’s time to add the little pink blossom hearts. These are made from simple strips folded in half, turned in on themselves and stapled into place. Probably one for older children who are confident using a stapler under supervision, which is also great for their motor skill development.
