Сreative childю We are looking for the ways of spending time with our children, having fun and teaching them at the same time. So, this creative activity is what we need. We are going to make a Card with a Balloon, which may be a delightful Valentine's Day gift to our dearest.

What We Need:
1. A workpiece for a card. Our card will be 10 x 15 cm.
2. A rectangle 5,5 x 14,5 cm.
3. A rectangle with an openwork edge [we make it with a puncher, but figured scissors can also be used]. The size of the rectangle is 7 x 14,5 cm in our case.
4. A large rectangle 9,5 x 14,5 cm.

For a Balloon:
5. 6 hearts and 1 — for a base, all in all is 7.
6. A basket for a balloon: it's made out of 3 x 4 cm rectangle. Cut out the «basket» as shown in the photo.
7. 5 pieces of string 5-6 cm in length.
8. First draw the clouds on blue or white paper, then cut out.

We also need:
— super glue,
— glue with spangles,
— foamed double-sided scotch,
— a sewing machine or a needle with a thread.

We start making the card together with our child.
1а. On a large rectangle (4) glue an openwork one (3), and rectangle (2) is glued above.
1б. Sew on a sewing machine or by hand by the perimeter.

And glue it on the workpiece (1).

Now we pass to the balloon:
2а. Bend 6 hearts into halves.
2б. Take one heart. Spread glue on one half and stick to the base as shown in the photo.

Handmade cards are so lovely: they take time to make but contain our tenderness and love. The card here is great! And the one I want to show you is also pretty.
