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

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

DIY Happy Birthday Sparkly Balloon card

red balloon happy birthday 1

Materials:

  • The Paper Studio value pack ivory notecard/envelope 4″x5.5″ [Michaels]
  • MS Word: Word Art (to print “happy birthday”)
  • Gemstones by Paper Studio Red Balloon Gem/Glitter sticker (Hobby Lobby)

OrganizationLove Pro Tips:

  • I designed the words “happy birthday” in Microsoft Word and printed directly on the card – I made the outline red to match the balloon
  • I got the balloon sticker on clearance from Hobby Lobby, so I don’t know if it’s still for sale. It was tough to arrange the balloon “string” to lie flat, but it was doable!

As you can see, there’s not a lot to this card!

Caption Ideas:

  • Because there are already words on the front of the card, outer captions are not necessary
  • Inside notes:
    • Have a great day
    • Hope your day is as amazing as you
    • Party time
    • Celebrate

DIY It’s Your B Day Card

DIY It's Your B Day Card www.organizationlove.wordpress.com

Materials:

  • Recollections Card/Envelope 4″x5.5″ white
  • Letter stickers (gift)
  • .35mm Archival Ink pen
  • Elmer’s Craft Bond Tacky Glue 4 fl oz
  • ruler, pencil, eraser

OrganizationLove Pro Tips:

  • Use a pencil and ruler to draw a straight line to write “It’s Your” on. Trace letters in pen or ultra fine marker, wait to dry, then erase pencil lines.
  • Any sticker letters could be used for this. The ones I had happened to fit the card well, which is important.
  • If you wanted a perfectly polished look, you could also use a pencil and ruler to draw a straight line on the bottom of the card to precisely line up your sticker letters.

Caption Ideas:

Not sure any are needed, as there are words already covering the front, but perhaps inside:

  • Enjoy your day
  • It’s your special day
  • Happy birthday
  • Have a blast

DIY Glitter Popsicle Card

DIY popsicle card www.organizationlove.wordpress.com

Materials:

  • Recollections Value Pack card/envelope 5″x6.5″  [Michaels]
  • Core Couture High Fashion 12″x12″ card stock (pink/green/blue glitter paper) [JoAnn’s Fabric]
  • Brown card stock
  • Martha Stewart corner rounder
  • Family Treasures cloud/scalloped oval punch
  • Elmer’s Craft Bond Tacky Glue 4 fl oz
  • scissors, ruler

OrganizationLove Pro Tips:

  • Use a ruler to make 3 rectangles on 3 different glitter papers. Then use a corner rounder to round the top 2 corners.
  • For the popsicle stick (brown card stock), the corner rounder I had didn’t work – the stick was too skinny for that! I just used scissors, hence why they are not identical.
  • For the “bite”, put the corner of the popsicle shape into a scalloped oval punch (looks like a cloud).

Caption Ideas:

This card could be used for a wide variety of occasions, such as:

  • Happy summer
  • Take a bite out of life
  • Happy birthday
  • You’re the sweetest
  • Thanks

DIY Rounded Squares Every Day Card

Rounded Squares Every Day Card www.organizationlove.wordpress.com

Materials:

  • The Paper Studio value pack ivory notecard/envelope 4″x5.5″ [Michaels]
  • White card stock
  • Recollections Basic Bold 12″x12″ paper pad [Michaels]
  • Martha Stewart corner rounder
  • Elmer’s Craft Bond Tacky Glue 4 fl oz
  • glue stick, scissors, ruler

OrganizationLove Pro Tips:

  • I cut 1.5″ squares and then used a corner rounder punch to round 2 corners.
  • I didn’t put all the shapes the same direction, rather kept the ones on the left facing one way and the ones on the right facing the opposite way.
  • Because the colorful paper was just paper, not card stock, I glued (using glue stick) it to plain white card stock (I had plenty of that) to keep it sturdy and also make it pop out from the card just a little.
  • Gluing it to card stock after cutting the square made things much easier when I punched it through the corner rounder! Trust me – I tried both ways, the paper alone didn’t want to punch.
  • I used the liquid glue to glue the card stock/paper combo to the card paper.
  • I made a rainbow design just for fun. You could use coordinating colors or black and white – I might try those later!

Caption Ideas:

Really could be anything – I’ll use it for an every day card, so something like:

  • Thinking of you
  • Just because
  • Sending love

DIY Button Balloons Card

Button balloons card organizationlove.wordpress.com

Materials:

  • The Paper Studio value pack ivory notecard/envelope 4″x5.5″ [Michaels]
  • Button Sensations buttons pack (6008 Citrus)
  • Black/white twine [Michaels]
  • Elmer’s Craft Bond Tacky Glue 4 fl oz
  • scissors

OrganizationLove Pro Tip:

  • I put the twine through the button’s holes and tied it in the back. I cut off excess on one side of the knot and put glue down. The other side of the knot is the “balloon string.”
  • I also put glue where I knotted together all 3 strings.
  • I thought it was cute to have the button holes facing different directions, not identical. Don’t over think it! 🙂

Some Ideas for Captions:

  • Happy birthday
  • Celebrate
  • Birthday wishes
  • Party time
