The tutorial I’m going to share today is called Marble Art Valentine Cards. I actually shared it on No Holding Back Life after TTTS Loss‘s blog, a few weeks back. It’s a toddler friendly craft, that is perfect for creating one of a kind Valentine’s.
We are sending these cards out to friends & family for Valentine’s Day this year. But honestly, you don’t have to do these only for Valentine’s Day. Depending on the color combinations you do, you can do a card for any occasion! The possibilities are endless. Plus, it’s fun & cheap. My two favorite words when it comes to crafts.
For this craft you will need some construction paper, paint, marbles (I used some old round beads) masking tape, and a aluminum pan/old box with sides.
1. First put a piece of tape on the bottom of your pan. Place your piece of paper on top. This is so your paper doesn’t move while you are “crafting.”
2. Squirt some paint on your paper. (not to much though) Throw in your marbles/beads.
3. With some supervision, have your child tilt the tray in different directions, making the marbles/beads roll through the paint and making a design on the paper.
4. Once you have the design you want, let dry. Trim and paste however you want to make your card. Add a sentiment to the front and you got yourself a nice, handmade card.
Hope this little tutorial got you inspired! I have some other card tutorials in the works, stay tuned!
