What to do with those old decks of cards that aren't complete....The FreeKidsCrafts team shows you how to make a playing card tote for your favorite cardster! Great way to recycle and make something useful too.
Lay out a piece of contact paper sticky side up on your work surface. Lay playing cards face down on the contact paper side by side until you fill the area. Place another piece of contact paper on top sticky side down so the cards are sandwiched between. Trim. Repeat so you have a front and a back of the tote. Run a piece of duct tape along the top edge of both your front and back pieces folding it over so half the tape in on the outside and half the tape is on the inside. Trim. Tape the straps securely to the insides of the front and back pieces. Cut two 12" piece of duct tape fold in half lengthwise to make straps. Tape one piece sucurely to the inside forming a handle on the front and a handle on the back. Line up the front and the back and run a piece of duct tape all around the side, the bottom and up the other side to form the tote.
