Banana Slug Share: Fun-to-make “Loaded” Cards

Learn to make a unique card that is a card, a gift, and a treasure hunt all in one. They are fun and easy to make and personalize. Sentimental or silly – you can make them as simple or elaborate, beautiful or funky as you wish -- the possibilities are endless! Tap into your creativity. Even if you don’t consider yourself creative – these cards will be a delight to make, give, and receive! Sample cards.

Supplies needed: You can keep it simple with plain paper, scissors, ruler, pencil, paper towels or Kleenex, and tacky glue. Or, you can add the following to have a finished card at the end of the session: 12”x12” double-sided cardstock with a different design or print on each side, stickers you like if you have some, glitter glue (clear and colors), packs of note, thanks, or invitation cards with graphics you like, and any decorative items you have handy.

Valerie Largin (Crown, '72) has been a teacher, Image Consultant, Business Development Executive, Copywriter, and Event Planner. She loves being creative and was raised in a tradition of thoughtful remembrance - sending cards, thank you notes and letters often. After she was introduced to junk journals, she tweaked that idea to create what she calls “loaded” cards, with inserts designed to delight the recipient. We all love getting mail, and she is thrilled that people enjoy receiving the cards she makes. She is happy to share the fun.
