Re: Greeting card "workshop"

One good way to print greeting cards that can be used with any aged group is
to use Foamies, which are 2mm thick foam sheets about 9x12". I purchased
mine at WalMart very cheaply. I cut them a little smaller than the size of
the card. The students draw on the piece of foam using WATERBASED markers.
When finished, they print them on the cards. If you need to, you can dampen
the card stock...but we didn't have to do that.
