Blizzard of Greetings:  Kit #2-- Color Your World

The video below (though not great quality) shows the process for this fun and easy crayon resist postcard craft.

Create your postcard, write a message and send it in the mail! It's already stamped and addressed for your convenience. 

 

Blizzard of Greetings:  Kit #1-- Magic Snowflakes

Discover the fun of painting over masking fluid-- and when your paint is dry, rub the masking fluid off to reveal snowflakes and more-- all unpainted!

The video above shows some of the finished products; when you're done, write a message and send the card in the mail!


Blizzard of Greetings-- Kit #3: Snowglobes

Create a snowglobe using the postcard, circle traced on the back, markers and stickers.

Use the circle to create your snowglobe outline; then create a scene inside the snowglobe using the markers, any craft supplies you have on hand, and/or the stickers provided.

The video shows my "underwater" scene snowglobe and a couple little tricks.  Have fun!

Post pictures of your creations on Facebook. . .and don't forget to write a message and mail the postcards!



Blizzard of Greetings--Kit #4:  Zentangles

Do you ever doodle on the side of your page? While you're on the phone?  Then you will love zentangles!

Molly leads us through a start - to- finish tutorial on creating a zentangle.  Even if you don't have the postcard kit for this week's project, you can create a colorful, interesting zentangle on any kind of paper and with virtually any writing instrument.

Don't forget to write a message on your postcard and stick it in the mail!
