Stampin' Up! Flowering Flourishes & Petite Petals
On Friday, May 9, I went back to Hoover Elementary School to teach my friend Jill's 4th grade class to make Mother's Day cards. I'll return in early June for Father's Day cards. This will be my last year as Jill is retiring. It's always a balancing act when you work with children. You need the project to be difficult enough to keep their interest, but easy enough for them to be successful. This is my third year working with Jill's kids and I have to say I'll miss it. This school is located in a very depressed area of the Coachella Valley and the kids always look forward to this creative opportunity as there is no budget for art.
And here's the finished pile of cards! The kids did a wonderful job!
- The best part of this card for the kids is it's easy! No tedious cutting - just uses punches!
- The best part for me is that using Teeny Tiny Wishes can transform this card into an anniversary card, birthday card, get well, thinking of you, sympathy. The list goes on and on.
- This card is quick to make. Five minutes and you have one. An hour and you have invitations for twelve.
- Position the Flowering Flourish in the upper left and the sentiment in the lower right. Pop the flowers and sentiment up with Dimensionals.
