Watercolor Bubble Cards

Standard

Wow, it’s been a bit since I wrote a blog post! So much for my once a month self-imposed quota. It’s been a real busy summer.

The other day I decided I needed to craft SOMETHING to write about, and since a friend somehow coerced me over to Pinterest, I was in the land of crafting plenty.

Every time one of my interns wraps up their time at our office, I generally like to give them a thank you card. I thought it would be fun to make some handmade cards to use.

So in the land of craft-spiration I saw this fun (and easy but also messy) painting method and thought I’d give it a try for a fairly low-effort, low time commitment craft project.

Things you’ll need:

Bubbles

Paint (everywhere I read said Tempura…I used acrylic because that’s what I had in my craft stock)

Straws

Containers you don’t mind getting painty (this is why I save all those sour cream and cream cheese containers y’all!)

Newspaper or something else to protect your work surface

Cardstock or watercolor paper

Scissors
