DIY Balloon Birthday Card

DIY balloon birthday cardThere’s a special person with a birthday coming up! It’s my Gram. My family is throwing her a card shower this year. I had no idea what this is, but apparently you ask a bunch of people she knows to send her a card. (It’s ok, she doesn’t even use the internet so she’ll never know I’m talking about it.)

I’m not a big fan of the holiday card thing unless the card is unique. What value is a piece of paper with a saying from some stranger? Meh. I like to personalize cards, and the best way to do that is to make them yourself.

Homemade Birthday Card Materials

  • Hole punch (round)
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Glue stick
  • Cardstock
  • String or a pen

Step 1: make the balloons

Hole punch the scrapbook paper into circles for the balloons.

Step 2: glue on the birthday balloons

Organize the circles onto the cardstock paper. Glue them in place when you like the way they look.

Overlap them for the appearance of depth.

Step 3: balloons need strings

Either glue on your string or draw them on with your pen.

I chose the pen because I wanted to add the “happy birthday” to the middle balloon string.

And you’re finished! Flip the card over and write your message on the back.

Happy crafting!
