Giant Greeting Cards

Here are the materials you’ll need:

  • Clean corrugated cardboard

Alrighty, let’s make some GIANT greeting cards!

Cardboard, scissors, pencil, eraser

1. Print out images that you’d like to incorporate into your cards. You can use any kind of design – emojis are really fun if you don’t have any ideas.

2. Sketch your images onto corrugated cardboard. Then, cut them out.
