Swirly greeting cards

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Easy ways to make kids happy|File under crafty|Publishing/writing/career stuff

Sadly, I often find myself digging around for blank greeting cards: a Christmas card for the bus driver, a thank you for a dinner or gift received, a birthday card for a little friend… gah! Let’s just say I am consistently unprepared in this category of Home Life and am always struggling to keep up.

That’s why I must encourage you to enlist your children to make a bunch of their own blank greeting cards. It’s one of those fun two-birds-one-stone kind of crafts (which I love), and you can get the whole low-down over at the Canadian Family Magazine website.

I LOVE this idea. You could use it all year round to make cards. You’ve been bookmarked :)

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (18) and Sarah (16). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
