Make a birthday card by printing out photos, attaching them to a piece of card stock and adding glitter to some of the details on the picture. This takes less than 1 hour. You need a printer, photos, card stock, glue and glitter.
- Choose the pictures you want to print
Choose the pictures you want to use for the card. These can include pictures of the birthday girl with a cake, blowing bubbles or playing.
- Print out the pictures
Print out the pictures in a standard size that fits into a card envelope.
- Cut out a piece of card stock
Cut out a piece of colored card stock on which to frame the photos. If you choose an accordion-style card with three or more photos, lay the photos out on the piece of card stock, making sure to leave a narrow frame of paper around them in order to get the right size.
- Fold the piece of card stock
For the traditional birthday card, fold the piece of card stock in half. For an accordion-style card, fold the piece of card stock in equal thirds.
- Attach the photos
Glue the photos onto the card stock.
- Add the glue
Add a dot of glue to the details of the picture that you want to highlight. For instance, highlight bubbles, candles or a toy. Do not overdo it.
- Add the glitter.
Once the glue is in place, add colored glitter. Wait for the glue to dry.
