Creative Self-Care: Make Art!
Affirmation Trading Card
Create a trading card for a person you would like to acknowledge as being helpful, wonderful, etc. Or you can make an affirmation trading card for yourself that can remind you of your awesomeness!
Time Required: 30 minutes
- A blank trading card or a piece of cardboard
- A glue stick
- Some recycled magazines
How to Do It
Step 1: Cut images and words out of magazines
Find words to match the message you would like to give someone else, or cut each letter out individually. Find images or patterns that add visual interest.
Step 2: Glue collage materials onto your blank trading card
You can glue these on any way you want. After it is dry, you can take clear packing tape and cover the card with it for added strength and permanency.
