The ultimate non-committal greeting card?

Finding the right words can be hard at the holidays. Eventually you start to tire of wishing people "Merry Christmas" or "Season's Greetings". After a while, even "May you survive Krampusnacht with your limbs intact" loses its gloss. So why not fall back on a classic piece of placeholder text to help you really communicate your message?

In just under an hour* of painstaking cutting, gluing and folding you'll be able to give your loved one an elegant pop-up card completely free of any meaningful text. Because it's not what you write on a card that matters; it's the thought that really counts**.

*Estimated time is for handcrafting a single card. Laser cut cards will take much less time.
**Unless you have a laser. Then it's the laser that really counts.

Paso 1: Things you will need

Get your kit together! You'll need:
  • Two A4 (or letter) sized sheets of card, ideally in contrasting colours. These should be thin and flexible enough to still work in a printer.
  • A printer.
  • A precise craft knife.
  • A cutting board.
  • A hard straight edge to cut along (e.g. metal ruler).
  • Strong paper glue.
  • Good short-distance eyesight or nerves of steel.
