Wouldn't you like to make some sweet cards like these to send to friends and family for Rosh HaShana? There's still plenty of time if you get started now, and you can even send them to your loved ones across the seas or where ever they may be! All you need is some colored paper, some bubble wrap, a bit of white paint and a glue stick. Oh, and of course the desire to create something special. I know you can do it!I have to say, I don't always love everything I create, but there's just something about these cards that makes me happy! Though it's preferable to make cards with card stock, these were actually made with paper from a pack of colored laser printer paper that I just picked up at my not so local Office Depot. Love these colors, and it's truly amazing how a new package of paper can inspire someone like myself who tries to steer away from purchasing craft supplies except where necessary. Suffice it to say, you'll be seeing lots more of this color combination in the upcoming projects using paper!
How to Print With Bubble Wrap:
It's really so easy and with quick and wonderful results!
- Apply not watery gouche or acrylic paint to a piece of bubble wrap with either a large paint brush or a dense sponge.
- Gently place painted side of bubble wrap on paper, burnish with your fingers, and lift off to view the results. The quickest printing I've ever done with predictable results!
- And as a side note, I've found that when using colored paper, white paint always looks the best. You know, fresh, clean interesting. Experiment if you like, but I think you'll see what I mean unless you really hit on some great color combo, which is possible but may take lots of experimenting.
