These three sweet card ideas can be created with very little effort and a whole lot of fun to become treasures for the significant people in your life.
There’s something special about repacking a cupboard or clearing a shelf and coming across a card or letter scribbled by your little one and addressed to you. These serendipitous treasures take you right back to the love, effort and time little fingers spent to create a loving message for you.
Simply glue pink cotton balls to cardboard. For the smaller flamingos, split a ball until you’re happy with the size and shape, and paint on the legs, neck and head.
I cannot contain my love for you
Cut out or photocopy the jar vector here, and past it onto hard cardboard. For the hearts, you can use heart stickers, heart buttons, heart beads, or even cut them out from pretty scrapbooking paper.
I love you sooooo much
Those times when little arms stretch out to explain just how much they love you can now be replicated in a card. For a truly personalised touch, trace your toddler’s hands with a pencil and cut out the shape. Then add a simple strip of paper with a concertina fold between the two hand shapes.
