201 Kids Mom's Day Card Project
#201 – Lacy Heart Mother's Day Card 
Paper Casting Project for Kids

 
Spend a pleasant afternoon with your children baking cookies or 
making beautiful papercast creations. Pre-school and  school-age children,
as well as teens, find paper casting FUN and EASY!  
                                
Materials Needed:

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp:  #201 – Lacy Heart
Cotton linter - (see Rycraft Paper Casting Kit and Refill)
1 paper casting* - 
#201 – Lacy Heart (see Basic Paper Casting Instructions)
Clear acrylic varnish (optional)
Construction paper
Paint, felt markers, or crayons


*Note:  Alternately, the casting for this project may be made from clay instead of paper (see Basic Clay Casting Instructions). The choice is yours.
Instructions:
1.  Apply a coat of varnish to the casting if you wish to paint it (so that the water in the paint won't turn the paper design back to pulpy mush).
2.  Cut and/or fold construction paper to make a card.
3.  Apply color to the casting using paint, markers, or crayons and let dry thoroughly.  Glue it in place onto the card.
4. Write a message with paint, felt marker, or crayons.


Painted and Cut-Out Medallions:

Choose the stamp designs you like best. Use the crisp, white castings as they come off the stamp, or trim them into cut-outs with scissors. Use paint and glitter to decorate them (we recommend adult supervision when children use glitter). You can also glue a magnet on the back of cut-outs for a charming gift.
            

This paper casting project is featured along with dozens of others 
in our book The Art of Paper Casting, which includes basic paper casting 
instructions, techniques for special effects, and a glossary of terms.
