Nothing can speak more to the heart than a homemade card or handwritten letter.
This past week, I’ve celebrated two birthdays with two of the most important people in my life. I have always made birthday cards for my friends and family, but over this past year, I found an easy way to make pretty, homemade cards.
I realized that making cards is something you do more often than you think, so I came up with a go-to way of personalizing homemade cards. They look something like this:
- One pack of blank cards & envelopes, 5 in x 6.5 in. I bought a set of 50 from my local craft store and they have come in handy so much. No more computer paper cards!
- One pack of scrapbook paper, 4.5 in x 6.5 in. Getting scrapbook paper the same size as your cards makes assembling your cards easier!
- Stickers of your choice.
- Scrapbook scissors.
- Fun ribbon or other decorating materials. Here’s where you can get creative! I found the flower ribbon shown in the first picture in the dollar section at Target. It adds a unique touch to the scrapbook paper background and ties it all together.
To make your cards, cut the scrapbook paper in shapes you like and assemble them to the blank card with glue. Add your stickers or ribbon to bring it all together. You can also decorate the envelope to match the card as well! And don’t forget to write a meaningful message inside!
The possibilities are endless. But buying a pack of blank cards has been a great investment. It’s so worth it!
