Last Saturday I helped set up a card party at the Sunnyside Conservatory in San Francisco. Dorothy Yuki, Stacy Garfinkel and I set up in the beautifully restored conservatory. Over one hundred children and adults came and made valentines cards and envelopes using found, recycled, and repurposed materials. It was the third annual event and it was a big success.
The Sunnyside Conservatory
The beginning of the crowd of Valentine card making. We made the banner
out of old maps and dictionary pages.
We set up a typewriter station with vintage typewriters. The kids loved typing
messages for their valentines. SO many of them had never seen or used a typewriter!
I used an empty frame to display card samples.
This is where I made use of the clothes pins I posted about below.
One of many fun cards made that afternoon.
A little girl made this card cutting petals out of remnant material.
