How to Make Your Own Lash Cards

Hey Everyone :-) In my September 2011 Birchbox I received a sample of some Lash Cards. I though these were a great idea for protecting your eye makeup when you really want to wiggle that mascara into your lashes. These lash cards sell for $4.99 for a pack of 10, which equals out to 50cents a lash card- and they are for one time use. This is way too expensive for my taste, so I thought... why not make my own??? I purchased a double package of playing cards at the Dollar Tree for $1(duh), which means that I was able to get 104 total lash cards for $1!!! This makes each lash card less than 1 cent.
Follow these steps to make your very own lash cards :
Purchase a deck of playing cards

Trace your design on the playing cards- These playing cards had a beautiful basic design on the backs.

Cut out the cards and enjoy!

And here is the Stencil/outline for you to follow if you do not have your own lash card to use as a guideline. This photo is of an average sized playing card
