DIY birthday card with pinwheels

bday pinwheels

Materials:

  • Recollections Value Pack cards and envelopes set 5″ x 6.5″ (kraft) [Michaels]
  • Recollections Craft It 4-piece pinwheels [Michaels]
  • Doodlebug Design square sequins (Halloween assortment)
  • Light blue card stock
  • White card stock
  • Elmer’s Craft Bond Tacky Glue 4 fl oz
  • MS Word, printer ink,
  • paper cutter, scissors

OrganizationLove Pro Tips:

  • I cut out everything and then glued it on in the following order: white card stock (sticks), happy birthday, pinwheels (actually a sticker), sequins. This way everything was layered the way I wanted it to be.
  • I used liquid glue, but had to wipe up excess around the sequins and in the sequin hole – I just used my finger to get the excess
  • As always, I placed everything down where I wanted it before gluing

JB hello flower 3

Materials: 

  • Recollections kraft card and envelope (value pack) [Michaels]
  • Recollections Basic Bold 12″ x 12″ paper pad [Michaels]
  • Recollections 1 7/16″ heart punch (blue one) [Michaels]

  • MS Word WordArt, printer, green ink
  • glue stick
  • pencil

OrganizationLove Pro Tips:

  • I glued down all of the hearts first, before gluing on the yellow circle
  • I chose purple patterns, but the paper pad has all kinds of colors – you could also choose black and white, rainbow, or any other color scheme
  • I draw on the stem, but I do it in pencil first and then trace over with green Sharpie

Caption Ideas:

  • Because there are already words on the front of the card, outer captions are not necessary
  • Inside notes:
    • Just saying hi
    • Have a great day
    • Love you

DIY cupcake birthday card for girls

card bday cupcake anyone all 3

Materials: 

  • The Paper Studio value pack ivory notecard/envelope 4″x5.5″ [Michaels]
  • MS Word, printer, black ink
  • scalloped scissors
  • The Paper Studio “La Petites” 3-D cupcake stickers (6 piece) [Hobby Lobby]

OrganizationLove Pro Tips:

  • I chose to arrange the stickers at an angle as opposed to right next to each other to take up more space as well as account for imperfections
  • Instead of pairing same color cupcake wrappers, I made sure each card had a brown icing cupcake and a white icing cupcake

Caption Ideas:

  • Because there are already words on the front of the card, outer captions are not necessary
  • Inside notes:
    • Yum!
    • Don’t forget to share!
    • Happy birthday
    • Enjoy your day
    • Have a great day
