Hello Ucreate with Kids! My name is Kristen Mason from Busy Kids = Happy Mom.
I'm thrilled to be here (I read the invite aloud to my husband!)! I started this blog as a way to keep all of my thoughts and ideas in one place. I love to find ways to keep my school-age kids busy with fun, practical, and purposeful ideas. A little secret: I also like to keep them "unplugged" but they don't realize that yet (shhh)! I'm sure this sounds like a lot of you... we'd be great friends!
I work part-time as an Elementary Reading Specialist for our local school system. I also enjoy speaking to MOPS and MOMSnext groups. I love all things craft related and have another site, Kristen Elise Designs. As a mother and teacher, I am passionate about teaching life skills in a fun way. Today, I'm sharing a fun and simple way to make pop-up cards!
|Open this card and..... surprise!|
|It's a pop-up card!|
|1. Cut two slits into the middle of your card. Tip: make sure your paper fits the envelope you plan to use before you get started.|
|2. Push out the middle section so that it stands up.|
|3. Add a fun little cut-out on the inside. It only needs to be attached to the middle section. You will have a notch on the front, that you may want to cover with a plain piece of paper (see top picture).|
|4. It's sure to make the recipient smile!|
THANK YOU SO MUCH KRISTEN!
