I feel as if I’ve been posting so many outings lately, I should attempt to even things out with a quick project I did the other night.
My Grandma’s birthday is coming up, and as all my family knows, I love to pass Josh’s “artwork” off as cards.
Well, as much as I wanted to get Josh to make a card for his Great Grandma, I decided maybe I should give her a break from Josh’s creations and make one myself.
I’m so glad I did.
I had seen cards for sale like this on Etsy and thought it wouldn’t be too hard to make my own; though I’m sure they’re nowhere near as professional looking as the ones I found on Etsy.
But they were very easy to make.
I cut out some triangles from bits of coloured paper.
Then, using a pack of blank cards I had on hand, I glued just the top of the triangles to the front of the card, mimicking the shape of hanging bunting.
Then, I got my sewing machine out and sewed a quick little line at the top of the bunting, to look like the string.
I got my letter stamps out and got to work.
I had heard a trick about wrapping a rubber band around the letters to keep them all in line, which worked wonderfully.
I finished my Grandma’s card and had all the supplies out, so I figured I should make some thank you cards too.
I thought they turned out pretty cute, so I ended up making more than a few.
I made so many, poor Josh may be out of a job.
Though I’m sure he’ll have no problem finding other things to paint!
