I’m a fan of anything that will keep my children busy and happy while I work, I came up with the idea of homemade cards…and who doesn’t love a homemade card from a 2 ½ year old ;). I’m a graphic designer, using Adobe Indesign I quickly set up a document that is either 8”x6” (card will fold to 4”x6” fitting into an A6 Envelope [4-3/4” x 6-1/2"]), or an 8 1/8”x9 1/8 (card folds to 4.0625”x9.125” fitting into #10 envelope [4 1/8" x 9 1/2"]). Using I’ll search for quotes/sayings for the card(s) (example: birthday card quotes), place the text into my document and hit print. Cut the card down to size, give the paper to my toddler and let him design the front cover using finger paint, glitter, markers, crayon…whatever his preference of the day is.

This card idea came from a catalog, unfortunately I can't remember which one.
