Make this birthday card for a family member that lives far away. Ask your local post office to add a postage stamp to the front of the card, and voila! A letter within a letter!

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: one card

Supplies:

  • provided photo of cosmos flowers
  • 8.2 x 5.7 in light blue marbled cardstock
  • 3.6 x 5.4 in dark pink sugar paper
  • dark pink and light pink paper craft string
  • PhotoScape photo editing program
  • craft glue
  • pencil
  • ruler

  • scanner and printer

PhotoScape photo editing program (version 3.6.3) can be downloaded free of charge from http://www.photoscape.org/

Steps:

  1. Score the 8.2 x 5.7 inches blue marbled card stock length-wise to create a card sized 5.7 x 4.1 inches.
  2. Ad

  3. Glue the dark pink and light pink paper craft string lengthwise and crosswise over the dark pink sugar paper, so that it will look like a parcel that has been wrapped.
  4. With the fold at the top, glue the wrapped parcel to the front of the card.
  5. Scan the photo onto your computer.
  6. With the PhotoScape program, from the different frames that could be added to the photo, choose Stamp 02 and set the width of the frame at 200%.
  7. Choose object and then choose T to add text to the photo stamp. Add the words "Postage Paid" in pink letters and move the text box to the appropriate position.

  9. Print the photo stamp via PhotoScape, using the D3 (9.5cm x 12.7cm) size option, and cut out the printed photo stamp.
  10. Glue the photo stamp to the front of the card.
  11. Add the finishing touches by asking your local post office to add a postage stamp to the front of the card.
