Dollar Tree Find – Leaf Friends Card Idea For Kids
Are you ready to recreate this handmade “Leaf Friends Card” idea? Let’s start with the “main” ingredient. You will need the decorative leaves from Dollar Tree, commonly found towards the front of the store.
With just ONE pack of colorful felt leaves, you can make SEVERAL different “leaf people” cards within minutes. All of which can be customized without breaking the piggy bank or the time clock.
For my handmade cards, I used school glue, small wiggle eyes, yarn, the felt leaves, scissors, Sharpie markers and of course – colored cardstock. That’s it! You can however use what you have on hand or substitute things out.
Just look at these cute creations! There’s no right or wrong way to do this craft. Just have fun by creating your card out of cardstock, adhering your leaf to the center of it and then decorating it to bring it to life!
Then go for glam and add glitter, rhinestones, stickers – whatever you may have on hand.
Or not! Go for simple like I did! A little yarn for the mouth and some “stick” embellishments for the hands/feet made by a thin-tip Sharpie. It doesn’t even need to be elaborate. Just go with the flow and let those crafty juices out!
