A real greeting card is so much more personal than electronic contact. You can easily make your own with card making kits.
It’s eleven o’clock and time to check the mailbox. Nestled among the ads and bills is a colorful envelope. You can’t wait to open it. And when you do, a tear of joy comes to your eye. It’s a handmade card from your friend. You’ve been separated by time and miles. You miss each other. Sure, you email and connect online, but it’s not the same.
Even if you’re not the world’s greatest artist—most of us aren’t—you can handcraft your own greeting cards to send to that special someone in your life. It may be your best friend, a brother or sister, mom and dad or your grandparents.
Grandparents, whether they live across the street, on the other side of town or a thousand miles away love getting cards from their grandkids. Your kids will enjoy making birthday, holiday and “just because”, refrigerator ready, cards to send to grandma and grandpa. And you, with the help of card making kits, can easily help them craft these meaningful projects.
You and the kids will have fun doing these projects together. Older youngsters will need less help than the older kids but making cards for grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins can still be an enjoyable family activity.
Most card making kits come with everything you need to design and craft your own custom greeting cards. Among the things they contain are pre-folded blank cards—often in a variety of colors. Various decorations and phrases can be glued to the card stock with the, often included, glue stick. Many kits come with self adhesive stickers. That alone will make the younger kids happy. All little kids love stickers.
Most card making kits come with, correctly sized, matching envelopes. You can brighten that special someone’s day with a handmade greeting card. Why not start today?
