Recycled Greeting Card Boxes

Introduction: Recycled Greeting Card Boxes

Do you have lots of old cards that you don't just want to throw away?... This is the perfect solution!

What you will need...
  • Cards
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Ruler
  • Paperclips (optional)

Step 1:

First, you will need to cut your card in half down the fold.

Step 2:

Next, measure and cut slits that are approximately 1 inch from the edge of the card and 1 inch long.

Step 3:

Then, fold the card along the slits and glue the corners.

Step 4:

When the glue is drying, you can choose to firmly hold the corners for several seconds or just paper clip them until dry.

Step 5:

Repeat these steps for both sides of the box, and fit them together when done.  Now, you have the perfect gift box, and it did not cost you a thing!
