Flower Craft: Handmade Cards

These DIY notecards come straight from the heart — and they're super simple, too!

Learning Benefits

What You Need:

  • Paper grocery bags
  • Old magazines
  • Construction paper
  • Tacky glue
  • Ribbon

What To Do:

1. Cut a rectangle out of the paper bag and fold it in half so that it forms a blank card.

2. Cut shapes (heart, star, square, etc.) from the construction paper and glue them onto the front of the card.

3. Search through old magazines or catalogs for images of flowers. Cut them out, glue them onto your card, and allow to dry.

4. Add three-dimensional details with ribbons, bows, buttons, or feathers.
