1 partner, 1 handmade blank notecard that incorporates a toilet tissue paper roll dandelion!

What is a dandelion painted by toilet tube roll? Exactly what you suspect:

  • Lay out your cardstock
  • Cut an empty toilet tissue tube at the end into tiny sections and spread out flat
  • Lightly dip the fanned out section into paint and dab on your cardstock
  • Add a center with a qtip or pinky!
  • Paint a stem if you like
  • Let dry and embellish

You can see a tutorial here

and an example


Please embellish your notecard a bit with additional painting (like stems or grass) a sticker, words, or a little something so it's not completely blank but make the embellishment generic enough so your partner can easily use the card.

The notecard should be mailable size so nothing smaller than 3-1/2-x-5 inches, as that is the smallest legal mailing size for an envelope in the US. The envie can also be handmade - plain or embellished, that is up to you.

Place your finished notecard & envie in another envie, write a little note to your partner about how this art adventure went, affix proper postage and mail it off!

This should mail for 1 first class stamp! Sender's choice for colors, this is all about the technique and having fun while making a mess!!
