The activity we have in store for today is card making with some of the pressed flowers from yesterday’s 4H challenge activity. If you didn’t catch the pressed flowers activity, check it out here.
The finished card has a pressed flower heart with the phrase ‘thinking of you’ below it on a thick paper card.
We started by gluing 2 pieces of paper together to make a strong background for the heart. The dark brown paper complements the white paper making this area stand out on the card.
My daughter outlined a heart on the white paper as a template then added glue within the heart area followed by laying the hydrangea petals to form a heart.
Lastly, my daughter stamps below the heart ‘thinking of you’ in a metallic purple ink before gluing the heart paper to a pre-folded card.
After the cards were made, we contacted our church for a list of senior citizen members that are home abound due to being unable to leave their home without assistance. My MOPS (Mother of Preschoolers) group has sent them cards in the past and they truly enjoyed receiving the little note informing them that someone is thinking of them.
