Make your Own Note Cards with Board Game Cards

Make your own note cards with board game cards. Board games don't last forever, and the pieces are often lost or broken, preventing the game from being played correctly. Don't throw the cards out. Use them to make cute note cards for any occasion.

-card stock (various colors)
-decoupage medium
-foam brush
-board game cards
-scissors or paper cutter
-bone folder tool, optional
-envelopes 4 1/2 by 6 inch envelopes (you can purchase these in most retail and office supply stores)

STEP 1: Cut your card stock in half, width-wise.

STEP 2: Fold each cut piece in half, creating your note cards.

STEP 3: Using a bone folder took, press along the crease of the card to smooth it.

STEP 4: Apply a thin, even coat of decoupage onto the back of the board game card, and place in the center of the card front. Press it down and smooth out wrinkles if necessary. Let dry. To help the board game card seal flat as it's drying, insert it under a few books over night.

TIPS: You can use white glue or other similar adhesive to apply your game card. Use them for thank you notes, get well cards, bereavement cards or send them just to say hello to someone. Use them for invitations. Make a set of note cards, tie a leftover ribbon scrap around the cards and give as a gift.
