Making Flower Cards

I really like the concept of home-made playing cards and so they don’t have to be that fancy or excellent; in reality it’s typically the imperfect playing cards which have ended up which means probably the most to me.  We not too long ago made a couple of completely different flower playing cards that have been actually fairly simple to make however very efficient. And the one issues that you simply wanted to need to make them have been the cardboard, a template, some patterned paper, glue, scissors and a pen to put in writing with. The perfect crafts are those the place we have already got every thing that’s required in the home.

We began by choosing a template.  On this case we selected flower template 2 – one which didn’t require the centre of the flower to be reduce out. We did not have any appropriate patterned paper in the home so we downloaded some scrapbook paper and printed that out. You would actually use any sample for this craft however we chosen the trendy rose scrapbook paper sample and the pastel gingham scrapbook paper pages so we may strive layering.

We reduce out a variety of completely different measurement flower templates, traced round them onto the patterned paper after which reduce out our patterned flowers. When my children have been youthful I might typically simply get them to chop the fundamental form and I might reduce out the more durable, smaller sections for them. That method they did quite a lot of the slicing however didn’t get discouraged by the more durable sections.
