Family Grab-and-Go Kit: pop-up cards
The Swissvale Library and the Paper Lady, Katy DeMent (the Paper Lady) are excited to share our next all-ages family grab-and-go kit: pop-up cards! Make personalized holiday cards, greeting cards, or because-you-feel-like-it cards. Grab a bag with fun and interesting paper for you to use - all you need to provide from home is scissors, glue, any extra art supplies like markers or pens you want to decorate with, sheets of normal-sized paper (slightly heavier paper is the best), and your own ideas and creativity! Drop by the library and pick one up for yourself or for your family - and have fun!
Kits will be available from mid-November to mid-December or as long as supplies last.
Take a picture of your cards and share it with us before you send or give them away – we’d love to see the fruits of your creativity!
