Handmade Name Postcard

I made a handmade postcard for one of my partner's on Swap-Bot. With this one, I decided to use a method I learned in Junior High.
  1. Fold a piece of paper in half.
  2. Write your name in cursive on the fold.
  3. Cut your name out in bubble form without cutting on the fold unless you need to depending on the letters in your name.
  4. Open it up.
  5. Glue it to another piece of paper of a different color making sure your writing is on the glued side down.
  6. Turn your art sideways and you'll be able to see a creature or bug.
  7. (See photos below to my finished project for an example.) 

    Title: Betsy (Handmade Postcard)
