This weekend one of our friend's son turned 3, and we got to go to his party. Since my son is a few months younger-the present part was easy. It's the card part that is hard to me ;) I thought about buying a card but that just seems so strange when I make cards. But I had to do something and fast!
So I saw a post on Facebook from Orlando Mommies that showed a baby painting on a canvas. But there was masking tape on the canvas so when the paint dried-pull up the tape and you have whatever was masked.
Brilliant! I gave my son a base card (with paper in the card and bigger paper under the card) and gave him crayons. I put a piece of masking tape on the card beforehand so that I could stamp a sentiment.
Here's his drawing...
And here's the finished card. Perfect! On the back of the card I put that Magnus had colored it. It's so nice and cheery. It would make a good card for grandparents and other family members.
Until next time my friends...have a colorful day!
