Read through all the instructions first before making these cards.
Cut your cotton material into 10cm x 8cm pieces, cut as many as you going to make cards out of
Draw your designs onto the 10cm x 8cm pieces of cloth. You can trace the design onto your cloth by masking taping your design, then cloth onto a window where the sun is shining. This works as a light box. i have chosen to go for nice african designs.
Mix 2 tablespoons of flour (not self- raising) with 2 tablespoons of water in your bowl, to form a liquid paste. Be careful not to allow lumps to form. Best way is to use cold water.
Put the mixture into your spout bottle.
Use your spout bottle, and the mixture inside it to trace over your design.
Leave your traced designs to dry.
Once dry, paint over the entire cloth with fabric paint in the colours of your choice and leave it to dry.
When dry peel the hardened flour mixture off of your design.
Make a card by folding your cardboard to the desired size, cut it and glue a piece of white paper inside.
Glue your designs onto the front of your cards. There is no limit to what your imagination can do.
On the inside you can write a short note, or poem depending on who you want to give your card to and what the occasion is.
