Cards are a great craft for kids to make. They are usually quick and relatively mess free. They are often cheaper than buying a card. This is a great card idea which will only take a few minutes – so perfect for a last minute card if you have forgotten to buy one.
We had lots of spare cupcake cases in lots of different colours. We thought they would look good as sweetie wrappers. We also used, card and pretty paper, glue and pens.
All you have to do is cut the cupcake liners into a sweet wrapper shape and then stick them onto the card.
It looks best if you choose card and paper in matching colours.
Then write a message on the front. Something about being sweet works well. The girls liked “Have a sweet birthday”.
This also works well for a Sweet 16 card.
These would be good for Mother’s day or just a card sent through the post.
This is a brilliant project for an older child. A 7-year-old would be able to do it on their own without any help.
