About this Activity

Recycle Wrapping Paper and Old Greeting Cards in this Project.

Maria shares her design idea for an easy-to-make greeting card.

Hint: If you (or the person you are with) are writing a greeting on the finished card, sometimes it is better to write it on a separate piece of paper, cut it out and glue it in. This way there is no chance of a wrong spelling or other mistake spoils the card.

You will find more card-making projects in our craft section.
