How are you doing this summer? I hope the heat isn’t too bad. But if your brain is having a melt-down, here’s a simple craft for you to pick up.
What you’ll need:
- Printable summer cards template (download for free)
- Sturdy sheet of A4 paper (I used photo paper)
- Hobby knife with a cutting mat
- Envelopes (regular size)
The watermelon is actually a slice! You can cut it out along the outer lines and fold it in half on the dashed line. I used a dull hobby knife and metallic ruler to score the card on the dashed line, in order to make a crisp fold. Once folded, this happy melon can stand on its own. Write a message inside the card and send this refreshing card to a friend or relative.
This chilling lemon and pineapple can be used in two ways. The most simple way is to cut them out with a hobby knife, leaving a bit of white along the beach towels. The other option is to cut them out together and fold the card in the middle. This way you’ll have the pineapple on the front and the lemon on the back of the card.
You could also print these cards on thin paper, to use them as notes or decoration inside your journal.
We’d love to see your cards – tag @sckawaii and use the hashtag #supercutekawaii on Instagram or Twitter.
