Here's another card I made on National Scrapbook Day. It's for Trevor's kindergarten teacher for Teacher Appreciation Week:
I was inspired by this card by Fiskateer #8546, Amy:
Of course, Trevor made one too. Materials: red, brown and green cardstock, scissors, pencil, pen, and glue.
Begin by folding the red paper in half to form a card. Lightly sketch the shape of an apple on the card, making sure there is a slightly 'flattened' part on the left side of the apple. This will hold the card together. Cut along the sketch line.
Cut a stem from brown cardstock and a leaf from green cardstock. Attach using the glue. Add a message to the card. Couldn't be easier!
Here's Trevor's finished card.
I like to photograph the inside of the cards Trevor makes. It's fun to see how his spelling and handwriting are improving over time. Quite a dramatic difference from this time last year! Which, of course, is just further proof that Mrs. Monachello is a grat techer. :)
