Kicky Cards For Kids

I made a few of these cards for my daughters and they LOVED them. My 5 year old helped me make these. Because the bodies are drawn simply & the dress shape is uncomplicated- this is a great project for a wide age range of kids.

Use left over yarn and wrapping paper or origami paper to make these simple cards.

Using a pencil, draw your figure – then outline with marker.

Cut out a simple a-line dress shape from origami or wrapping paper (or any decorative paper) and glue in place.

Glue on yarn and trim to desired length. My kids love this part – they get to give their girl a haircut!

Draw in face details and style your girl!

Use rubber stamps to add a message.

I purchase my blank cards at Michael's.

You can experiment with hairstyles – try ponytails and braids too.
