Cardboard Greeting Cards

Why would you make greeting cards out of cardboard?

What supplies do you need?

How do you do it?

  1. Identify an existing fold in the cardboard that will not be too stiff. For example, the fold between two sides of a cardboard box are less resistant that the fold between the side of a box and the top/bottom flap.
  2. Cut a piece of cardboard that is the size of a greeting card when folded in half along the existing fold.
  1. Note that the cardboard can have old packing tape attached to it or can have strange pre-existing cutouts and folds. Any weirdness adds to the uniqueness of the greeting card.
  1. Use this piece of cardboard as a base upon which to staple or glue other cardboard pieces, wrapping paper, or construction paper. These new pieces should provide contrast with the bland colour of the cardboard base.
