How to Make Birthday Greeting Cards

Whenever it’s someone’s birthday, we often struggle to find the gift that expresses how much this person means to our lives. If you’re stuck, why not directly express it through a birthday greeting card that you can make yourself? Read on and we’ll show you how.

The first step is to decide what kind of birthday greeting card you want it to be. Is it funny or a sentimental? This is crucial because it will determine how you will later design it. For example, if you want a funny greeting card, you will want cut outs of cartoons, or you might want to draw your own cartoons.

The next thing you have to do is decide what birthday message to write on the greeting card. You can write your own poem or put an already written poem on it. A friendly reminder: copyright laws forbid you to sell someone else’s work without permission. But for the purposes of just making a greeting card for a loved one, copying a favorite poem, saying, or scripture is more than acceptable.

The next step now is to gather all the materials you will need to put the greeting card together. You will want to gather cut outs of any pictures you want to include, as well as scissors, paste or glue stick, construction paper, crayons or markers, a pencil for outlining (in case you make mistakes), and don’t forget your creativity! You may also want some lace, ribbon, doilies, pretty material scraps, paints, and other items.

The most important thing to remember when creating your own greeting card is that there is no limit to what your creativity can let you do! There is no right or wrong way to make a birthday greeting card. So break out those old magazines, poetry books, comic books, and cartoon strips, get those creative juices flowing, and make the best greeting card ever!

The greeting card you will give is sure to make their special day even more special! They are surely going to appreciate the effort and thought you put into it.
