Get Well Card

 My grandma (the girls' great-gram) had knee replacement surgery this week. Of course we had to make something...couldn't go to the hospital empty handed with our crafty reputation!
Last year when my grandpa had his surgery we made the Hospital Bag card, so we had to think of something new for this knee surgery...A card that looks like a leg/knee!

Supplies- Construction paper, Glue, Markers, Foam Letters, Ribbon, Hole Punch, Scissors.
1. Cut out a leg shaped card (pictured above) with a bend @ the knee. I left the fold @ the top of the leg above the "knee."
2. Cut out two "shoe" shapes. (Ours are purple above.)
3. Glue the shoes to the bottom of each leg. (The outside of the card & the inside)
4. Use the foam shapes to spell out "GET WELL." Ours were sticky & did not have to be glued. If you don't have letters, they can obviously be written on with marker/crayon.
5. Punch 4-5 holes in the top of the shoe.
6. String the black string through the holes like a shoe string & tie into a bow @ the top.
M1 writing Grandma's name on the outside shoe... "Get Well Grandma!"

7. Write a personal message on the inside of the card...
And here is our finished product. She loved it & is happy to show it off to all of her visitors and nurses!
Enjoy! s.b.
