Alice's Giant Playing Cards/ Ace of Clubs

As a very young child, I enjoyed books about fantasy and folklore. One of my favorites was Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. I also loved the original animated film by Walt Disney. 
Now that I am a mother, I cannot think of anything more whimsical and fun than throwing an Alice-in-Wonderland party. 

To me, it just isn't an Alice in Wonderland party without giant card decorations. I scoured the Internet, and while I did find places that sold giant cards, most were very expensive or in the UK. I decided I could make my own. I used standard cardboard science fair poster display boards and poster paints. The poster board was approximately $10 at the local Wal-mart. I bought the poster paints at the dollar store.

To make the Ace of Clubs, I began by tracing large circles onto the poster board. I used my cookie-cutter storage container.

I overlapped the circles to form a club shape.

Once I drew in the stem and capital As, I used a circle cookie cutter to draw the smaller clubs.

Once everything was drawn in, I painted, and done!
