Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 3

Supplies:

Supplies for making the greeting cards.
 
Supplies for making the greeting cards.
 
Old magazines for use in making a greeting card.
 

Steps:

  1. Choose an old magazine to use to make the card. For my card, I found a magazine dated February 1958 which is the month and year my husband was born. This is the one I chose to make him a Valentine card. The other magazine is from the spring of 1964 and I chose it to make a birthday card for a good friend who was born in March 1964.
  2. Putting the greeting cards together.
     
  3. There are several free websites which allow you to download templates for magazines or newspapers. I chose a magazine template for the Valentine card and a newspaper template for the birthday card. (See
    https://www.lucidpress.com/pages/ and https://www.homemade-gifts-made-easy.com/newspaper-generator.html) After I made a personalized greeting, I sized them and printed them out. Then I inserted them inside of my magazine cover by stapling them to one of the pages.
  4. An old newspaper page.
