Using the scissors, cut a piece of patterned card stock. Determine the desired size of the card, and fold the card stock in half.
From the second piece of card stock, cut out a rectangular piece. It should be 1 1/2 inches taller and 1/2 an inch wider than the folded card. With the adhesive foam, affix the card stock to the top of the folded card so that it resembles a box lid.
With the writing utensil, add a personalized message on the inside of the folded card.
Cut a single piece of ribbon, and tie it around the card so that it forms a bow.
From the final piece of card stock, cut a smaller rectangular piece in the shape of a gift tag. Write a birthday greeting on this piece of card stock. Use adhesive foam to attach the tag to the top of the card just below the bow.
