Steps to the Making of Quilt Cards

As easy as 1-2-3...                                                                   

Quilts Needed: Cheer Up, Birthday & Holiday Greetings                         

  1. 1. Just gather enough colored 8 ½” by 11” colored paper and cut it half.  Postcard size.  Do not fold     

  2. 2. Write a cheer up wish on the card, with drawings to make it colorful.  Use markers and stickers only.  You can put your first name and organization’s name on the bottom right of the card or even stick a group pic of your group on one of the cards.  You can draw, cut out Sunday comics, write poems, jokes, make word puzzles, tic-tac toe, and be as creative as you wish!  You can even think of a theme: for example, summer fun at the beach, or traveling through Hawaii, or a sea world theme. 

  3. 3.Once the cards are finished, simply lay them on a table, 4 going vertical and 5 going horizontal, leaving room for the flyer for middle of card quilt and Smile Pack label for your quilt (download/print) for the center of the finished quilt. If you browse through this website, you will see samples throughout the photos. Stick these cards onto a butcher paper with glue and then laminate them.  If lamination is not available, use clear packing tape.  Fold it an accordion way and put it in a box with some gifts. Draw a smiley face on the box and your Smile Pack is ready!!!
