Lots of Presents Birthday Card

I love to send hand-made cards to my friends on their birthday's. I'm always on the lookout for fun cards ideas that can be sent without using extra postage. I saw this idea in Cards and it fit the bill perfectly!

Tools Needed:

  • Paper cutter
  • Scissors
  • Adhesive
  • Glue Dots
  • Foam tape
  • Darning thread or crafting floss
  • White card stock
  • Solid card stock
  • 3 - pieces of coordinating patterned paper
  • Sentiment
  • Glitter glue

Start with an 8.5" x 11" piece of white card stock. Cut it to 5.5" x 8.5" and fold it to 5.5" x 4.25". 

Cut the remaining white card stock to 4.5" x 3.25". Cut the colored card stock to 5" x 3.75". Adhere the white card stock to the colored card stock and the colored card stock to the card base. 

Cut 6 - 3/4" x 3/4" squares from patterned paper. Place a piece of foam tape on the back of each square. Adhere squares to card with about a 1/2" between each square.

Tie 9 bows with darning thread or crafting floss. Adhere a bow to the top of each package with a glue dot. 

Use a rub-on or sentiment sticker on the top of the card. I added some Stickles (glitter glue) on either side of the sentiment.
