Birthday Card DIY!!!

Hello, hello, hello!  My grandfather’s birthday was last week, and I made this card for him. You can do it, too!

You will need:

  • One sheet of regular printer paper
  • One 8″ by 11″ sheet of card stock, any color
  • Scissors (I used special scissors to create a wavy edge, but regular scissors work just fine, too)
  • A glue stick
  • A pencil
  • An eraser
  • LOTS of multicolored sharpies, but if you don’t have those, you can use colored pencils or crayons

  

  1. Fold the sheet of card stock in half. Then cut the sheet of printer paper so that it’s just a little smaller than the front of your card.  
  2. Now it’s time to choose your superheroes! Pick four logos. I chose Superman, Captain America, Batman, and Green Lantern.
  3. Next, sketch the front of your card in pencil, so you can erase if you make a mistake. I did lots of that!
  4. Then outline everything in sharpie, then use the eraser to make all the pencil lines disappear! (Abraaaa-cadabra!)
  5. Now comes the fun part…COLORING! And you get to use one of my favorite drawing tools…SHARPIES!  
      
  6. Glue the white piece of paper to the front of the blue folded piece.  
  7. OPTIONAL: You can choose whether or not to add the bow to the card. If you choose to add the bow, you will need a hot glue gun and red ribbon. Tie a bow with the ribbon and glue it to the front of the card, anywhere you want. You can put it on the top, on the bottom, or on either side.   
  8. Yay! You now have an awesome card, and you can write whatever you want on the inside!

Happy Birthday Grandpa!
