Simple card ideas for starters


Glue and Glitter Cards


These cards are messy to make but the effect is spectacular and I guarantee the kids will love it! They do cover the recipient in glitter when they open the envelope but I don't necessarily see this as a bad thing – I call it festive!

         You will need

• blank cards

• kid's pvc glue

• a couple of different colours of glitter

• christmas cookie cutters
Directions

1. Pour glue into a small container or tray until the glue is about 3mm deep. Make sure that your containers is large enough to accommodate the cookie cutters.

2. Dip a cookie cutter in glue and then use it to make a glue print on the blank card. For best results, leave the cutter in place on the card for about three seconds to allow for the glue to drip down onto the card. Repeat until you have made all the glue prints that you want for that particular card.

        3. Sprinkle different colours of glitter on top of the glue prints, making sure to cover all of the glue     
        marks. Then shake the glitter off into a tray and allow card to dry.
