Joy Peace Love Card
Joy, Peace and Love Card is created by using decorative ribbons. You will need: red construction paper, plaid patterned ribbon, gold ribbon and printed out "Joy Peace Love" strip of paper.
Decorating Tools: scissors, glue stick.
1. Get 10.5" by 6.5" red construction paper and fold it in half. Now you have a 6.5" by 5.25" card. Make the two edges face to your right.
2. Get a 1.5" wide plaid patterned ribbon. Cut two pieces 6" long and two pieces 4.75" long. Glue two longer pieces to the card using glue stick. Leave .25" space from the card's edge. Glue two shorter pieces of ribbon to the card on top of 6" long ribbons. Leave .25" space between the ribbons and the card's edge.
3. Take a gold ribbon 1.5" wide. Make a bow 3" wide and tie it with any thread in the middle. Leave the ends of the bow hang 3" long. Place the bow on top of plaid ribbons at the upper left corner of the card. Put glue on the 4" ends of the bow and glue it in place. Cut the hanging ends of the gold ribbon off.
4. Print out a 1.5" by 2.25" red strip of paper with Joy Peace Love on it. Center the words to be one on top of another. Make the letters white. Center the sign in the middle of the card and glue it down.
To make a simpler version of this card, use patterned wrapping paper instead of ribbons. You can also substitute a bow with a pin, an ornament or a large gem stone.
