Birthday Gift Card - finished card standing ready to giveDo you need a last minute birthday card? This is an easy, gender neutral, universal card that can be given to kids or adults.

This would also be a great way to use any scrap pieces of scrapbook paper you may have laying around too. If you do not have sticker adhesive ribbon and bows - you can use regular ribbon and hot glue.

  1. I used kraft paper measuring 6.5" length by 4.5" height. I folded the paper in half for my card.
