I am not the "regular card-maker type"... When I want to give a card, I always end up giving a fun and different little and easy project. Here's one I did.
I used a cardboard ribbon thing and covered the top and bottom. I simply decorated it a little bit on top.
I cut a stripe of paper and wrote a message on the white side of the paper. I glued one end to the cardboard thing and rolled the rest around it.
