Cut and Tear Candle Card

I’ve been doing this card project with kinders for about 8 years now, and I’ve yet to find one better. Students can make this for whatever they celebrate, and practice their tearing and cutting skills as well.

1. Students tear a 3″ x 11″ strip of card stock into 3 pieces. The middle one with two fuzzy torn edges is kept, the other two are thrown away. The middle strip is then torn into 3 equal candles.

2. The candles are glued to a 8.5″ x 5.5″ piece of white paper. Yellow flames are torn from paper and added above each. The candles are cut out with a scissors, leaving a white edge.

3.  The candles are glued to the front of a folded sheet of cardstock paper. I love the Recollections brand found at Michaels and Jo-Anns. The colors are rich, the paper is strong, and it’s often on sale. You can’t get much better than that.
