Instead of writing a letter, send more personal postcards to your friends and relatives. Making your own postcards allows you to really express yourself, and it's not at all difficult to do.

What You'll Need:

  • Card-stock or 4x6-inch blank index card
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Black felt-tip pen
  • Colored pencils or markers

Step 1: Cut a 4x6-inch piece from cardstock or use a blank index card. On one side of the card-stock, create the back of a postcard.

Step 2: Using a ruler, draw a straight line down the center of the card to divide one half for the address and the other half for the greeting.

Step 3: On the half for the address -- the right side -- use a ruler to draw three straight horizontal lines on the lower half of the card.

Step 4: On the front side of the card, create the front of a postcard. Draw anything you'd like. The only limitation is your imagination! Color the picture with colored pencils or markers.
