  1. Neatly stack four squares and place them on your cutting board. Use your detail knife and ruler to cut random triangles and shapes from this square stack. Work precisely, and after each cut you make, re-align the stack. If you don’t take the time to do this, when you reassemble the squares, your pieces won’t fit neatly back together.

  1. It’s always nice to have a place to display the cards you receive, so I created this simple display, too!

  1. Take an old wooden picture frame, and run a row of thumbtacks, two inches apart, along the vertical sides. Don’t push them in too deep yet, leave a small gap between the tack head and the wood.
  2. Select a spool of sturdy twine or string, and tie the end to one of the top thumbtacks. Zigzag the string across the frame back and around the thumbtacks, working your way down the frame. When you reach bottom, tie off your string around the last tack and push the tacks deeply into the frame.
  3. Hang your cards over the strings and secure with a tiny clothespin or clip. Sit back, enjoy the cards you received, and think of the people that sent them and the words they shared inside.
