Thank you cards are so often the forgotten chore. We love to receive them, but sending them is easily neglected. Not to fret, it is never too late to send a Thank you card! In fact, this is the prime opportunity to create something with a little more personal charm. There are usually far fewer cards to write, so why not make some fun out of them.
For me, watercolors, are my go-to for this sort of project. The medium is quick, mistake-friendly and usually charming. I am always looking for ways to keep my kids entertained as well. So, I thought dipping cookie cutters in wax would be fun for them. This process was inspired both by Batik fabric dying (also a project I long to do), and easter egg dying. Simple and fun!
If you are artistically inclined, you could make these more interesting by using free-hand brush-strokes to create an image, with a broader variety of color. If I hadn't had kids with me to watch over, I would've have given it a try! For next time; these are some inspirations I would use for a more sophisticated wax resist watercolor project.
1. 2 cups soy wax flakes
3. Cookie Cutters
4. Watercolor paper or cards
5. Washi tape to hold down the paper
