In-Full-Blossom Birthday Card

Use some simple materials to make an elegant birthday card.

Approximate Time: 20 minutes

Supplies:

  • 8.2 inch x 5.6 inch light green marbled cardboard
  • Ad

  • 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
  • pencil
  • ruler
  • a pair of standard scissors
  • quick-drying glue
  • one matching envelope

Instructions:

  1. 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.
  2. Resize the included pattern of the flower, if necessary, and print it out.

  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Affix each flower to the front of the piece cut from the cork sheet, using a brad for each flower.

  8. Glue the piece of cork sheet to the front of the card, carefully ensuring that it is an equal distance from the edges.
  9. 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.
