Project Idea #4: Recycled Cards

You may never need to buy another Hallmark card again – unless, maybe, it’s one of those funny ones… Any last-minute decorative gift/thank you card has the potential of being made quite quickly from the contents of your paper recycling bin. Anything from old Anthropologie catalogues, to calendars from 2008, to cereal boxes could potentially be excellent card-fodder. Simply find the best-looking corner and cut a card-sized rectangle so that the image appears on the front when it is folded, and voila!

(Here is a piece of a failed woodcut that I would otherwise have discarded. Pretty cute, huh!)
