So, let's get started!
Here's what you'll need:
card stock to make a card, or ready made card
acorn (or other fallish) stamp
Do A Dots, markers, crayons...
yarn or decorative trim
|Some of the supplies didn't make it to the picture. Ha!|
|We traced leaf shapes onto the paper and cut them out.|
Next, we stamped and glittered an acorn shape onto the front of our card. I had the children do that first and then fill in the rest of the space with their leaves. We painted glue over the stamp, stamped it down, and then glittered over it.
After that we glued the leaves onto the card. I told the children to arrange them on the card to look like they were falling off a tree.

After we glued our leaves on we made a little tag for the outside of the card. We chose it to say "Happy Fall" but yours could say "Happy Thanksgiving" or a sweet cheesy saying, "Happy Fall Ya'll". :)
Now, all that is left is adding on your little bit of trim. We chose some thin yarn and tied it around the top of the front flap of the card.
Voila! A sweet little falling leaves card perfect for sending to a special friend to brighten their day.
We have some fun things planned to share with you in a couple of weeks; some kids Christmas crafts and Christmas cookie recipes, and some more stocking stuffer ideas. Oh, and a fun little Thanksgiving/Christmas garland! Come back soon!! Blessings:)
