Easy Homemade Cards 5

We have lots of birthdays to celebrate in September and we are big fans of homemade cards.  Now that MaxiMad is at school, time to make elaborate and complicated cards are a thing of the past.  We needed a quick, all inclusive idea.
So we made ……………………

Chicken cards, which are ever so easy and very effective.
All you do is take a piece of card and trace round a plate, cut it out with pinking scissors, add a few feathers, a foam beak and a googly eye.
The only part I do is the cutting, MaxiMad does the tracing and both the boys love gluing and sicking. 
It makes for a home made with love and inexpensive card.
Anyone with anyother ideas for basic cards that can be done, easily and by littleones, please let me know.

    That is so cute. I love homemade cards, and not just because I resent having to pay £2.50 every time I want to send a half decent one. You'd love Ros Badger's Homemade Gorgeous Things to Make with Love. http://bit.ly/2gOUx0. Loads of projects, all of them – as the name of the book suggests! – homemade and gorgeous!!

    AMM – Thanks for the heads up

    Dotty – we did them as easter cards too. I love doing crafts with the boys, I am going to try your flowers out soon
