A simple way to make adorable cards!
If you don't already have an old magazine/catalogue, it is easy to find them at second hand stores for a good price.

  • Step 1

    The first step is to take a piece of paper, preferably a thicker paper, and fold it in half. That will be your card base.
    For my card, I had papers already folded with a design on the front. Use whatever you have available to you.

    The second step is to look through an old pattern book or magazine, and find a person that you like. Cut them out and then figure out where you want them on your card. Also, find a sentence or a word during your search, something that relates to the purpose of the card or the person you chose.
