  • How to make a greetings card. Floppy Disc Card - Step 1
    Step 1

    First , you start off by taking the floppy disk apart. Which is easy to do ; just pull out the protective flap & everything else will come off easily .

    When it's done , you'll have pieces like the ones in the picture .

    This part depends on if you want to use the disk or if you want to use paper .

    I decided to go with the disk , so I used it to draw a circle & then cut it out .

    I also included the hole in the middle ( so the metal part can be seen ).

    Use glue & stick the paper onto the disk .

    & it'll look like this (:

    You can either write your letter/note before or after sticking it on .

    Now for the cover , you can do it up anyway you want to .

    The cover of the disks are easily attached . Just press them together , they fit back like a puzzle .

    This is just an example of mine ;
    - I used red paper as a label & added a heart sticker onto the protective flap .
