Oh dear- time got away from me last week. I meant to post this last week, but better late than never, I guess. This project was actually inspired by this craft, which uses potatoes to stamp the birds. Now, we actually tried making that craft but, we used small fingerling potatoes and I forgot to cut the potatoes in half. SO the birds ended up being huge, and the whole craft was a huge fail. Well- not entirely I guess, because it did spawn these adorable little note cards.
One of my favorite parts of this craft was the use of the corrugated cardboard. I cut a small bit of cardboard and then had Claire dip it in brown paint and stamp it on the card to create the tree for the birds. Then I just poured some red and blue paint so that Claire & Simon could stamp the cards with their thumbs.
Then when the paint was dry I added the googly eyes (of course!) and I added a few leaves for visual interest. The cards looked cute without the leave too, but I liked the punch that the green added. And there you have it, an all occasion note card.
