Skip the glue and make these pretty shiny cards with your kids this year!
We have made these super easy shiny cards, you don’t even need glue! The possibilities are endless if you want to change up the shape or the shiny material too!
What you do need:
- Card stock(we used white)
- Sequins or shiny confetti(we used tiny stars)
- Contact paper
- Paper for inside
- Shape(we used a star) you can use a cookie cutter too
- Craft knife
What to do:
First, and this is an adult step, fold the card and cut out the shape with the craft knife:
Then, let the child add the shiny objects to the piece of contact paper. The piece should be a little bigger than the cut out picture:
Place the contact paper with shiny objects on the inside of the card and stick other paper on the inside, over the contact paper:
This is the outside look:
I added some dots around the star with a marker, just to finish it off. You could make a border of some sort if you’d like. I like the simplicity of the card, do you?
Such an easy card to make with little kids, no (big)mess and so pretty! Play around with different types of shapes and shiny objects and you could make a whole range!
How pretty! Glue always makes my cards warp so I’m excited to try this technique!
