Hi everyone, today I have these cards where you can record your own message.
A normal looking card, but once opened it plays your recorded message.
The small hole in the photo above reacts to light so once the card is opened the message plays and then once closed the message stops.
This is what the voice recorder looks like and I purchased mine from eBay here.
You can buy 10 second, 20 second & 30-second modules but I have seen longer ones, you can also buy blank cards with the module already fitted.
I decorated the cards using my favourite Dovecraft Secret Garden collection which is available from Craft Stash here.
To make these cards you will need…
1 piece of 11″ x 7″ white cardstock for the base of the card.
Score along the 11″ side at 1/4″, 1/2″, 5.1/2, 5.3/4 & 10.3/4
1 piece of 10″ x 7″ white cardstock for the top closure of the card.
Score along the 10″ side at 5″
2 pieces of 4.7/8 x 6.7/8 pattern paper to cover the front and inside of the card.
2 pieces of 4.7/8 x 6.7/8 black card to cover the inside case of the card.
Fun foam to stick inside the case to support the card and block out any sunlight.
Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made it.
The floral print below worked well with this card as I was able to punch a small hole in the centre of one of the flowers, disguising the light sensor perfectly.
I’m so pleased these cards work and I look forward to recording a nice message and giving them to someone special.
Happy crafting everyone.
