Crafty Thursdays: Library Notecards

In celebration of National Librarian Day yesterday our craft today is library note cards. We made these out of the check out pages from damaged books withdrawn from our local library, but you can use any type of paper -- even children's drawings (we've made them with Nancy Drew illustrations, too). 

Materials & Tools:

  • Blank note cards (I got these at Michaels)
  • Photo corners (also purchased at Michaels)
  • Paper trimmer (you can use scissors but it's hard to get perfectly straight cuts
  • Card catalogue pages from damaged and withdrawn books from the local library sale (don't use these pages from library books still in circulation.)
  • An Exacto knife

Step One: Cut out your book page (I use the exact knife for this). Then use the paper trimmer to cut it to the right size with clean straight edges.

Step Two: Use photo corners to attach to the card. And you're done!
