Metalic paper note cards, gold and silver.Beautiful cards you can use for holiday notes or as gift tags, and they're easy to make!

Approximate Time: 30 - 45 minutes plus drying time




  1. Cut cardstock into rectangles. Note cards will require larger rectangles than gift cards. Fold the rectangles in half to turn them into cards.

  2. Decorate the front of the cards with glue designs. The designs can be seasonal, holiday, or simply abstract, if you're not feeling too artistic. Allow the glue to dry.

  3. When the glue dries, you will have a raised design. Paint over the entire front of the card, any color you choose. You will notice the raised glue design gives the card a 3-D effect.

  4. Allow the paint to dry, and your cards are ready to use.

Thifty Art Work. I found this bargain name brand spoon rest at a thrift store. Put the photo on the front of a card and sent it to a long distance bargain hunter pal.
