Well here is your chance to make a personalized card for your loved ones for the holidays. Using balsa wood and a few other crafting supplies, I'll show you how to make two different cards that have a third dimension to them.
Step 1: Gathering Your Materials
1 board of 1/8 inch thick balsa wood
1 board of 1/4 inch thick balsa wood. (If not available, the 1/8 in can be stacked 2 layers deep.)
A razor blade or utility knife to cut the wood with
Colored construction paper (or any other colored paper
Paint and paintbrush
A surface to cut on. (A couple layers of cardboard and an old catalog work fine.)
