DIY Greeting Cards

image

Now that the Holidays are over, it’s time to sit down and write those “Thank You” notes for the gifts received, the hosted parties you attended, the kind words you received or even a “Just Because” note! So instead of heading out to spend more money, why not make your own! T.W.O. has a great idea that will add a little personal touch to each note and can be used for a variety of occasions! And the best part is that you get to pick the colors, design and save money!

Supplies

-Greeting cards, plain white
-Acrylic paint (or stamp pad)
-Chinese cabbage*
-String

*Treviso radicchio or any other leafy vegetable can be used

image

Begin by cutting off the end the stem of the cabbage or leafy vegetable.  Secure the head of lettuce by tying a string around it.

image

Dip your cabbage into the paint and stamp onto the greeting card. (You might want to stamp it on a scratch piece of paper before you stamp the greeting card to get any extra paint off.)

image

Repeat process to create more flowers. Allow the paint to dry for about 30 minutes. Once dry, it’s time to start writing those notes!!
