How To: Birthday Card

{B's homemade birthday card}

So it's B's birthday today and I could not be any more excited. I love birthdays in general, spoiling your loved one in treats and surprises. I especially love making the birthday cards, it is so much better making a card yourself rather than buying a manufactured, unoriginal card. It doesn't even take that long, plus it's fun. It's a no brainer - home-make birthday cards!
You will need; a ruler, card, envelope, two different coloured ribbons, glue pen and scissors.
Step One: Measure the width of the card so that you know the length to cut the ribbon.
Step Two: Cut the ribbon.
Step Three: Use the glue pen and draw a line of glue, then place a strand of ribbon on top of this, making sure the ribbon is secure.
Step Four: Write your message on the front.
Step Five: Cut the over hanging ribbon.
And there you go, you've created a special birthday card for your loved one!
