I saw a get well card similar to this one years ago at the grocery store except the band-aid had little googly eyes. It was so cute, I stashed the idea away in my head to make someday, and today’s the day. :) This is definitely a project that kids can help make, since it doesn’t require a lot of technical skill. It’s also something you can whip up in a few minutes if you have a friend who’s not feeling so well at the moment. Maybe it will bring a smile to their face. :)

How to Make This Get Well Card

You will need:

One blank card
One small band-aid
One black pen (waterproof, if using watercolors)
One waterproof red pen (I used a Sharpie.)
Watercolors or colored pens
Size 0 brush (if using watercolors)

Oh my goodness, these cards are so cute. AND they're so easy to make. You probably have all the supplies to make these get well cards already! (Kid-friendly project too! :))

First, peel off the band-aid and place it in the center of the card. Draw two bed posts on either side of the band-aid. (Think of them of vertical lines if the idea of drawing makes you nervous.) Add a little circle on the top of each to add a bit of decoration. Draw a rectangle below the band-aid for the blanket. You can make the line wavy or straight, whatever you’d like.

Use the black pen to draw a face on the center of the band-aid. And then use the red pen to add color to the cheeks. For my card, I used watercolors to paint the bed posts and a light pattern on the blanket. You can do the same, or use colored pens or pencils.

Write whatever sentiment you’d like on the front of the card. “Get Well Soon!”, “Hope you feel better!” or something like that works. :)

Now it’s time to open up the card, and write something sweet for your friend. It’s kind of unusual to get a real card when you’re not feeling well these days, so I’m sure your thoughtfulness will mean so much to them!

  1. Oh, this is perfect! I have two people that I want to send get well cards too, but I don’t like any of the ones in my stash (inherited from my mother). I’m making some tomorrow!

      1. Is there a way to get an email each time you publish a blog post? I get your weekly update, but I’d *love* to get an email for each post!

  2. Omg, a bandaid on the card is the cutest idea ever. Bookmarking this post in case I ever need to make a get well card!!
