Bring on a Paper Party With These DIY Birthday Cards

The lights dim and suddenly a cake, aglow with candles, is brought out and melodious singing fills the air. The recipient’s face lights up as a sweetly decorated cake is placed in front of him or her. The song ends and someone yells “Make a wish!” The recipient closes their eyes momentarily — huff! The candles are blown out… and it’s time to get the birthday party started!

Just as important as the candles and cake are on birthdays, so are cards! For a special handmade touch, opt to make your next birthday card rather than picking up a generic store-bought card — your friends and family members will surely appreciate the beautiful keepsake and be awestruck by your crafty talent.
