5 Easy Birthday Cards in 5 Minutes

Five Easy Birthday Cards in Five Minutes #Papercraft #CardMaking

It’s a busy time of year at the moment for Birthdays, there seems to be one in our family nearly every other week!

If you’re set on making all of your birthday cards but are struggling to find the time to make them, these five cards are super quick, and most importantly easy to make, and require only a few craft essentials to make them. All of the products I’ve used are from the We R Cake and Candles range and they coordinate beautifully with each other, so it’s just a matter of cutting and sticking everything onto your card blank.

Suitable for : Beginners

You Will Need

1. 40th Birthday Card

  1. Start by covering the front of the card blank in your chosen card stock, using double sided tape.
  2. Run a contrasting strip of card across the centre of the card using double sided tape to secure in place.
  3. Stick the large wooden present topper centrally on the card, using foam toppers to make it stand off the card.
  4. Add the four and zero die cut shapes using glue dots.

Top Tip!…Use a paper trimmer to speed up the card making process, plus it also ensures that you get nice clean, straight lines on all of the cardstock that you cut.
