You may remember when we did “first time finger-paints” and my son made his first finger-paint masterpiece. Well I couldn’t bring myself to throw it away and it was a little big to hang on the fridge, so I decided to use it to make greeting cards! I’m going to use them as thank-you notes for Christmas gifts. This is a great thing do do with your kids’ artwork because not only are you recycling and saving their hard work from being thrown away (or put away to be “saved” and never seen again) you are sharing their artwork with people who will (hopefully) appreciate having something handmade by your child!
I used a ruler to divide the painting into 3.75″x5.75″ sections, then cut them out.
I also cut out some white paper the same size as the artwork, and then some black paper 6″x8″.
I folded each sheet of black paper in half and used a glue stick to glue a sheet of white paper on the inside (to write the note on) and then glued the artwork to the front of the card.
I put them under a book to dry so they would be flat.
