SEASON's GREETINGS! CARD MAKING by my kids

 As the last term examinations finished and new school session yet to begin my kids at home pester me with the question "What shall we craft today ?"
So I helped them make their first greeting cards


Very cute and loving
We started with card paper or thick chart paper...
Cut them to card size...
Folded them...
Faintly drew the margins..
Sketched simple figures like kite, chick, fish...
Drew some appropriate background to the figures...

Adhrit and Aarotrika were too excited to make these card.
They coloured the cards...
And I taught them shading figures...
Then they added dark outlines to the main figures...



My kids also added a line of black and  gold each at the margin...
I cut the open edges of the cards using crafts scissors...
Fancy, right?


Each one of them are happy, bright, sweet, innocent and bring cheer...


Instead of making covered envelopes for the cards,
I simply cut strips of paper which I wound round  the width of the card glued the ends of strip...
Now one shall have to tear open the paper band to view the card...

SEASON'S GREETINGS TO YOU ALL!
