My Take on the Book
The CREATIVE CARD MAKING PACK supplies your child with hours of fun and creativity. The authors have done a very good job giving the reader an introduction to the book, the equipment necessary to complete each card, creative ways to add details to the cards, step by step directions with illustrations, and even a template for creating an envelope for the finished product.
My seven year old daughter and I decided to make three cards. The flower pot card was the easiest. Once she learned how to make the pop up box for the inside of the card, then the frog prince card was easier for her to finish. Her favorite was the flapping butterfly. The only assistance needed here dealt with the accordion folds for the pop up butterfly.
The difficulty level of the card varies. Many card making techniques are introduced in this book. There are plenty of colorful preprinted pictures to use to make the cards. The child is encouraged to use their imagination once they make a few cards following the directions.
