Have you ever thought of including an interactive activity for your function? Wow your guests with unique paper craft activities!
Your paper craft or card making activity can be as easy or complicated as you would like. The activity can be adapted to accommodate young children, older adults and those with disabilities, just ask!
Birthday Party – You are planning your child’s birthday party but need an activity, here are a few suggestions:
- A card centered around the party’s theme (ex: Princess, Robots, Animals, Fiesta, Cooking, Nature).
- A memory booklet, optional candid pictures taken & printed to begin the memories.
- A scrapbook page or frameable collage, optional candid pictures taken & printed to add to their page.
- You could make treat boxes in advance as a “goody bag”.
Scout Activity – Girl Scout, Boy Scouts, 4-H and other organizations have badges to complete, why not incorporate an papercraft activity!
- A card that incorporates the theme of the badge.
- A booklet to record their requirements for a badge.
- A scrapbook page or frameable collage centered around their badge.
Family Reunion – Family reunions can be a lot of fun, but sometimes the kids (adults too) need an activity to keep them busy for a bit, why not have a papercraft activity for them!
- Card making is multi-generational and is a great way to bond with family members.
- Perhaps there are family members that couldn’t make the reunion, card making could be available yo make cards to send to those who are missing.
Weddings/Showers – A wedding can be quite stressful to plan. With all the arrangements that need to be made, thank you notes are usually the last thing you think about. Here are some ways to make some:
- Have a workshop for your friends and earn free products to make your own.
- Have a bridesmaid brunch and you could make thank you cards as an activity.
- Purchase a few kits that you and your spouse could sit down and do together over a period of time.
- Purchase a kit for each table and have your guests make the cards for the couple.
Baby Shower – Most baby showers have an activity, why not include a paper craft activity? Here are some ideas:
- A scrapbook page for a baby book that could be put together.
- A card to give to the expectant parents; this would work well if the baby shower is remote and each person could include a gift card in the card they made.
- Thank you cards to give to the expectant parents.
Fundraiser – Cardmaking as a fundraiser could add an element of fun to your event. There are multiple ways to do this:
- You could hold a cardmaking workshop and any orders people make your organization would receive 20% of the sales from me.
- Your organization could charge a flat fee to make cards for all who attend (a small fee would be charged for my expenses).
- Your organization could make cards for a donation to your organization (a small fee would be charged for my expenses).
