Cards from Bubble Print Decorated Paper
August 12th, 2010 by Craftylocks

There are lots of fabulous arty techniques for children that create decorated paper – here is a classic paper craft that uses some of that decorated paper pile.

Cards are needed throughout the year, handmade cards are always a treat to receive. Using some of the children’s own artwork makes a very special card – it is also speedy to create.

These examples show some simple ways that we used some bubble printed paper to make some cards. The first idea just makes a feature of the artwork. Gluing it on a card with a border is enough to make it stand out. decorated_paper_card1
Another way is to cut some shapes from it to make a picture. As well as the fish idea here, you could do a heart, a flower or flowers, a snowman or a present shape. decorated_paper_card2
Work in the reverse and make the hole cut out of the paper your feature. This shape is made by folding the paper into four and cutting into the folded corner. If it was a little bigger it would be perfect as a frame for a little photo of someone. decorated_paper_card4
Finally the shape that has no end of iterations – letters or numbers. To add a bit more effect on this card we cut the ‘DAD’ letters out twice, once out of the decorated paper and once out of a contrast color. Then we arranged them till we were happy with how it looked and glued the letters on. decorated_paper_card3
