Handmade note cards are so nice to receive and can be simple and easy to make as well! These caterpillar cards took about 5 minutes, look great and are a pleasure to give as a thank you or simply to say hello!



Thanks

Time: 5 minutes (plus drying time for the paint)
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy

Materials
Card stock
Various paint colours (we used 7 in total)
Black and green fine tip pen

Method
Cut a page of card stock in half. Fold into a card format.
Orient the card in landscape direction. I have little bottles of paint with lids so we simply dipped our fingers into the lids and fingerprinted onto the card stock.



final dip



Thanks

Allow the paint to dry thoroughly and then with a fine tip pen, draw on letters, grass, birds, worms or whatever your choose to put on your card!



Thanks
We used one card as an end of year thank you to a teacher. With seven colours, you can put a face on the first print and THANKS on the rest.
