Materials, Schmaterials!

First things first, gather your supplies. You'll need:

  • Cardstock paper (as sturdy as your grandma's old oak dining table)

  • Scissors (because using your teeth is just not as efficient)

  • Glue (preferably not the kind you find on the back of your sofa)

  • A printer (unless you're going for that hand-drawn look)

Designing Your Masterpiece

Now, let's get artistic! Your header card has to be designed. Consider it a small-scale advertisement for your merchandise. Make it striking and uncomplicated. Is what you want people to say as they stop? Here's a funny thought: What would its superpower be if your header card were a superhero?

Measure Twice, Cut Once

It's time to break out those scissors and trim your cardstock paper into the right size for your header card. They can be made to whatever size you choose. Just remember, if it is too big, it might look like a giant crown, and if it is too small, it might disappear like your socks in the laundry.

Funny But True: Have you ever noticed how tricky it is to cut a straight line? Well, header cards don't mind if they're a little wonky.

Glue, Stick, and Laugh

Now, let's assemble your header card. Fold the cardstock in half so it's like a friendly book, and apply some glue. Here's where you can get hilarious; if you accidentally glue your fingers together, don't panic! Stick your header card to your product. Make sure it's hanging there all proud and confident, like a kid who just aced a spelling bee. This is the perfect time to create a small hole—no, not for hide-and-seek.
