Homemade Gift: Four Seasons Notecards

My oldest daughter, "E" 
actually made these
Four Seasons Note Cards 
this winter to give as Christmas gifts
and we forgot about them
so... we decided to save them for 
Mother's Day.

My daughters are lucky enough to have
two grandmothers and two great-grandmothers
to celebrate for Mother's Day.

To make the note cards,
my daughter drew a drawing with colored pencil
on a sheet of white office paper
(folded in half so she knew where to keep her drawing)
You can also use watercolor,
collage, marker with crayon (any media)

Then, I just run them through our copier/printer
to make full color copies on white card stock.
If you don't have a copier at home you
could have some made at a local office copy shop.

We bundled them with envelopes
and tied them with a piece of rainbow yarn.

A perfect gift for Great Grandmothers
who can't get out to the store anymore 
to purchase cards.

They'll also be appreciated by 
grandmothers who always want kid art!

Happy Card Making!

This is an awesome idea. Thanks for sharing! It is so hard to buy for older people because they have everything they need. This is an adorable and useful idea.
