Redesigned Greeting Card - three homemade redesigned cardsI save all card packagings I get from online orders because they can easily be redesigned and reused. The themes for these greeting cards are Happy Birthday and Happy Valentine's Day. These are perfect to pair with the gift baskets I make throughout the year!

Here are three ideas of how to redesign greeting cards that I made with regular household items you may have at home already.

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 3 cards

Supplies:

  • scissors
  • decorative scissors
  • hole puncher
  • glue stick
  • cards
  • stickers
  • pen
  • cardstock
  • magazines

Steps:

  1. Inspect the cards you have and see what areas you need to cover up.
  2. Redesigned Greeting Card - examine the cards to determine what areas will need to be covered
     
  3. I will be using kraft cardstock paper to cover up the areas with text. Measure and mark the areas that need to be covered up on your paper and cut out.
  4. Redesigned Greeting Card - measure and mark the paper you will be using and cut out

  5. Idea #1 - To cover the logo on the front of a card, you can measure paper to fit your card. Then, cut a triangle out and mark each edge. Using a decorative pair of scissors, follow your mark as a guide and cut all around. Glue the paper down and you are ready to decorate. It looks nice!

  7. I decorated with stickers saying HAPPY B DAY. The dot symbol separating B DAY was made by hole punching an extra area on the sticker.
  8. Redesigned Greeting Card - add alphabet stickers to create your message

  9. Apply the same concept to the inside of the card, if you want.
  10. Redesigned Greeting Card - the same process can be repeated on the inside of the card

  11. Idea #2 - Cut random color pieces from a magazine and create a mosaic pattern. Then cut off any excess pieces. Kraft paper can be glued inside on this one as well.
  12. Redesigned Greeting Card - used pieces of magazine pages to cut out different shapes to create a mosaic, glue in place and trim

  13. In one of my magazines, I found these cute Valentine Day cards and I cut them out and glued one in the center of the card. This would be a perfect idea to reuse any old Valentine's Day cards you may have and no longer need too!
  14. Redesigned Greeting Card - little Valentine's Day graphics in a magazine

  15. Idea #3 - I glued down a flatten cupcake liner and glued a Valentine's Day card in the center with a heart sticker.
