Macaroni Greeting Card - finished card with a small red bow added in the upper left cornerThere's still plenty of expired macaroni pasta and I need to do something so it won't just go to the trash bin. Then I thought I could make a collage-like greeting card from it.



  • 1 piece cardboard paper (any size)
  • uncooked macaroni pasta
  • water colors and brush
  • glue (preferably hot glue)
  • tiny buds
  • beads
  • paper fastener (wire)
