This week I am focusing on being thankful and showing that thanks with cards. I will feature different easy ( some super easy) greeting cards to make at home. 1. Gather your materials. You will need a pre made blank card in your choice of color, some scrap paper in fall colors , contact paper , a marker ,double stick tape, scissors and a leaf shaped paper punch. 2. Start by drawing a leaf on the front of your card. Cut out. 3. While you are cutting it out have your child punch leaves out of the scrap paper. 4.Cut a piece of contact paper twice as large as the card, so you can sandwich the leaves inside. stick the leaves on the contact paper. 5. Fold and press. 6. Trim and tape the contact paper into the card.
