Ever wanted to create a craft postcard and do it without pressed wood pulp?

With this card, you can take any thin wood, particle board, etc ( <1/4") and send a post card to your favorite person!

They're easy to make and fun if you have scrap wood from a project. I had some 1/4" plywood left over from putting a more durable sheathing over drywall in my workshop. 

The wife had me cut down the scrap to 4"x6" pieces for the post cards.

You'll need:
Some form of wood or board no more than 1/4" thick.
Table saw or circular saw or bandsaw if you're feeling adventurous (watch your fingers)
Decorations: old magazines, string, lace, yarn, leaves, buttons, beads, anything you can find that looks fun!
Tools: scissors, glue, tape, sharp knife

Have fun and watch your fingers!

Step 1: Preparation

So, first you'll need to find your materials for the project. Cutting the wood is one of the first steps; remember 4" x 6" for each card.

Gather all your decorative items and all your tools together as well. Old artsy or outdoorsy magazines help immensely. Plus, this is something perfect for getting rid of scraps from other projects (wood, yarn, trim, edging, buttons, beads, etc.)

It's always fun to find something to get rid of what may have been considered garbage not 5 minutes before.
