How about this for a simple novelty greeting card idea?

You will need:
  • card
  • colours
  • string
  • scissors
  • felt pen
Fold a piece of thick paper or thin card in half.

On one half of the card, draw "me," or in other words, draw yourself, because you're the one who's going to send the card.
Then on the other side of the card draw "you".

The picture has to be of the person you are sending the card to. From me, to you. Make the picture look like a cartoon.
Colour in the two pictures.
Then write your message in the card.

Put "From Me" and "To You" along the bottom of the card, and in the middle, add a message, depending upon the purpose of the card.
Next, pop a hole where the hands are in the picture.

The best way to do this is to place your card above some sticky tack, then push a pencil through the card.
Cut out a heart from thin coloured card.

Alternatively, use white paper, and paint it red.
Cut a piece of string a bit longer than the width of your card.
Thread this string through the hole in the middle of your heart, then through the holes of card where the hands are, and tie a knot.
And when you've done that, you'll have a card that looks like this.

There are plenty of other types you can make. How about a Happy Birthday card or even a Get Well Soon card?

Try it yourself!
