|How about this for a simple novelty greeting card idea?|
You will need:
|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!
