Easter Blessings! Updated with Part 2!

I was recently asked to hold a Easter card making workshop for a group of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders at church.  This is really out of my comfort zone!!  I usually work with adults! Sunday night, March 24, I will be working with 10-12 children.  Fortunately, my daughter has agreed to help me!  Thank you, Amanda!!

Happy Saturday!  This is Carolyn from...

We are to make 30-35 Easter cards for the shut-in and elderly of our church. We will have a limited time to work, so the cards need to be simple and easy to make. Stamped sentiments made into stickers will make the project easy and quick!
I used a package of A2 cards/envelopes from JoAnn's Craft Store. I cut a solid colored piece of cardstock to fit the front and then layered a slightly smaller piece of colorful paper on top.  This step is already completed for all the cards.
All the card fronts will include a cross.  The child can then select the sentiment/s to add to the front.  All the sentiments were hand stamped on various colors of cardstock and then run through the Xyron sticker maker.
For the inside of the card, the child will choose from two sentiments.  These sentiments were stamped and run through the Xyron sticker maker.
The envelopes have a sentiment stamped on the outside.
This is my professional carrying case for the project!!  Everything fits into a gallon storage bag!! When all the cards are completed, we should have 30-34 cards ready to be mailed!
Simple, but effective!

The workshop was a success!!  Here is the link for the rest of the story!!
