Tutorial: Make a Collage Window Card from Recycled Papers
My little girlies and I are participating in a handmade card swap with some other families through Kids Craft Weekly, and and I’ve been using the activity both to kick-start the Christmas card crafting for our own family and friends and to inspire my own paper crafting.
My goals are to incorporate recycled materials into all our work, and to come up with some card-making ideas that are engaging and enjoyable for the children, that utilize our creativity, and that look nice whether completed by a preschooler or an adult.
And I have to have a lot of ideas, because preschoolers won’t do more than a couple of copies of any one thing before they are done and DONE!
Yep, I’ve come up with a couple of misfires, but the collaged window card is a good go-to activity. It looks good with anything–labels from soup cans, pages torn from ratty old books, wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, newspaper–and it looks equally good whether it’s done by a five-year-old or a 33-year-old.
Well, okay…usually my five-year-old’s looks way better.
