Valentine Post Cards

Here are a few examples of what else you can do with your Zentangles. Zentangle post cards are fun to create, easy to mail, and the postage is about half of what sending a normal card would be. One of the drawbacks is no privacy, of course. If you send them to people you know or to friends and family members, it won't matter to them. And how much fun would it be for them to receive an unexpected work of art in the mail and a sweet Valentine wish to boot!

If you have other friends who Zentangle, you could exchange hand made Valentines. That way you can all collect each other's works of art.

Here's how to make them:

  1. Cut a 4" x 6" piece of 140 lb. cold pressed watercolor paper.
  2. On the back side of the card, either draw a vertical line down the middle of the card, or use a post card stamp and stamp this side of the card. (These stamps can be found at many craft stores and stamping stores. If your local store doesn't have them in stock, ask them to order one for you.)
  3. On the right side of the back of the post card, address it to your friend. Put a post card postage stamp above the address in the upper right hand corner.
  4. Either stamp or hand write a Valentine greeting on the left side of the card. Don't forget to sign it at the bottom and if you have a return address sticker, add it to the upper left hand corner of the back of the card.
  5. Zentangle a design on the front of the card. Don't forget to sign it!
  6. Drop it in the mail a few days before Valentine's Day.

That's all there is to it. You can also make these fun post cards for other holidays... St. Patty Day, Easter, 4th of July, Birthdays etc.

The Zentangles below can be used for regular greeting cards, as well. As I said before, I highly recommend that you use a scanner and scan all your Zentangles into your computer so you can them make them larger or smaller so they will fit onto any card. For these greeting cards, just print them out the size of card you want to make, or a bit smaller if you want to put a colored border around them, and then glue them onto the front of the card. See Part 4 for more detailed instructions.

Have fun and share your art!
