Cupboard Door Greeting

Here's a use for your old singing or talking greeting cards:  tape them to the inside of your cupboard door to surprise your friends and family.   It takes less than 5 minutes!

Simply cut out the brain of the card, along with the section of the front flap containing the pull strip.  Tape the brain to the cupboard door so the card's hinge is about 1 inch (25mm) from the inside edge of the door.  Next, cut a paper strip and tape one end to the inside shelf and the other end to the original front flap of the card.  This is the most important step, since most cupboard doors do not hinge on a single pivot point, the paper strip serves to tug at the front flap instead of unfolding it.
