Celery-Print Cards

Use celery to make a special card for Mom this Mother’s Day.

What you need

  • stalk of celery
  • rubber band
  • red and green craft paint (We used acrylic paint.)
  • card stock
  • paper plate
  • paint brush

 

What you do

  1. Fold a piece of card stock in half to make a card.
  2. Put craft paint on a paper plate.
  3. Attach a rubber band around the celery stalk to keep the ribs held tightly together. Then cut off the ends of the ribs so you have a flat “dipping” surface.
  4. Dip the end of the celery stalk in the red paint. Then use it to “stamp” a flower design on the card.
  5. Use the paint brush and green paint to add stems and leaves to your flowers.
