To make cards from the template, print or photocopy the download onto sheets of 8½" × 11" paper. We recommend 65-pound card stock for best results. Card stock is available at any office supply or stationery store.

For this activity, you will need:

  • Enough printed cards so that all participants have at least one to decorate.
  • 5 ¾" × 8 ¾" greeting card envelopes (available at office supply and stationery stores).
  • Art materials for decoration (crayons, markers, glitter . . . whatever you desire).
