6. Postage stamp greeting card
Make sure to check out this Postage Stamp Greeting Card. You are not going to believe how simple this card is. The only materials required are card stock and a few postage stamps. Basically, you collect stamps of varying colors and stick them on a card. If you have a printer you can type out the “you rule (seriously.)” and print it off, if you don’t have a printer you can just hand write it out. That’s it! And the best part is it’s adorable! I am so in love with this idea. Perfect for the last minute when you’re running behind.
