Not sure what she will do with her sheets!! I may see if I can make some Christmas cards with my blue ones because they have some nice gold scraps in them. The yellow ones are nice and bright and lend themselves nicely to floral cards. The "green" ones will need some creativity to turn them into cards. They may get a wash of colour to help them along at some point!!
A week of fun and creativity!!
I made three pieces of serendipity paper and used parts of the third one to make these two cards. I cut one strip of about 3/4", then trimmed it into squares which I layered onto several layers of coordinating cardstock to create the accent for this card. I distressed the edges of the layers and added texture to the card front using pencil crayons.
She loved making serendipity sheets and cut different shapes out of hers.
Just goes to show you that even with basic supplies you can create some interesting and effective cards!
I found a scrap of adhesive fun foam which we cut up and used instead of 3D foam tape to pop our images.
I used the pencil crayons to add colour and texture to my decorative paper as well as the cardstock.
We had a wonderful time and made a few other crafts as well.
We had basic supplies - her box of pencil crayons which included a few markers, a couple of pencils,
some wax crayons and one black pen, one pair of safety scissors, glue sticks, a few cardfronts and a small stack of cardstock pieces along with two clam shell cases of images from my stash and one of greetings. No fancy machines, no embossing folders, etc and we had a wonderful time making cards!!
I am looking forward to many years of time spent creating with her!!
I hope you take the opportunity to craft with young people when they present themselves!! They are so willing to try and we just need to let them be - no judgement or advice about our visions of their projects!!
