Today each of the girls designed and printed Christmas cards. I cut some pre-bought (from Amazon) styrofoam sheets to make them smaller than the cards. Then the girls drew their design on the sheet with a felt tip pen and when they were happy we used a pencil to create a relief drawing. The print will only stick to the surface of the styrofoam that is not carved...it basically does a reverse of how you draw it. (We avoided words for this reason).
We then added some printing ink to a baking sheet and used a roller to add the ink to the Styrofoam block and then we printed.
We found simple designs were most effective! G was brilliant and her robin and deer designs were amazing. I came up with a present design which looks very modern. G and E both did Baubles. P also tried a snowman but it wasn't as effective!
