Making thank you cards from art work

Since a lot of people are busy right now sending out thank you cards for all the lovely gifts they have been receiving, whether it was Christmas or Hanukkah that they have been celebrating, I thought it would be a good time to share what we have done for thank you cards in the past...

I don't know about you, but we have STACKS of paintings done by our little ones, especially huge sheets of finger painting, since Rylan loved and now Damian loves doing them. But what do you do with all of them as they pile up? Well, I put aside my favourites, some of which you can see here, and the rest are used for making cards (and other gifts).

It is very easy, we simply fold a piece of light cardboard in half, cut a frame shape out of one side, and then cut out a piece of the painting to be used and either glue or tape it onto the card, so it looks like a framed piece of art work. Here is one we did when Rylan was about 3 years old.

And thanking becomes an act of giving - a beautiful piece of artwork!
