On and off we make hand-made paper at home. Seed paper is particularly popular around Spring time.
Marbling is another favorite activity with the kids. So, we have a lot of marbled papers handy. The 5 year old prefers the simple joy of Shaving Cream Marbling. Sometimes he uses too many colors which get muddled up, but it's always fun.
This easy card can be adapted for any occasion. Since Valentine's day is just around the corner, we decided to go with hand-made paper hearts on marbled background. I can easily see clover leaves instead of hearts for St.Patrick's Day, for instance.
