Use some simple materials to make an elegant birthday card.
Approximate Time: 20 minutes
- 8.2 inch x 5.6 inch light green marbled cardboard
- 8.0 inch x 5.4 inch emerald green paper
- 3.9 inch x 5.4 inch piece cut from a tan colored cork sheet
- leftover pieces of paper in the following colors: purple, green, blue, yellow, and orange
- small silver brads
- a pair of standard scissors
- quick-drying glue
- one matching envelope
- Fold the 8.2 inch x 5.6 inch marbled cardboard in half to create a card 5.6 inches x 4.1 inches. Use the ruler to make the fold neat and smooth.
- Resize the included pattern of the flower, if necessary, and print it out.
- Cut the pattern out and place it on a piece of colored paper. Trace around the pattern and then cut out the flower that has so been traced onto the paper.
- Continue tracing and cutting more flowers from different colored papers until you have enough for this project. I used 13 flowers to make the card.
- Affix each flower to the front of the piece cut from the cork sheet, using a brad for each flower.
- Glue the piece of cork sheet to the front of the card, carefully ensuring that it is an equal distance from the edges.
- Fold the 8.0 inch x 5.4 inch emerald green paper in half and glue it to the inside of the card to write a message.
