One easy birthday card is decorating card stock with patterned paper. To make a birthday card for an 8 year old, a mom just needs to get a piece of card stock, cut it down to the size she needs and fold it in half for the card. Then she needs to get a piece of patterned paper, use a stencil to trace the number eight into it and cut it out. Next she can paste the piece of patterned paper to the card stock. At the bottom of the eight, she can finish by gluing a piece of ribbon to the paper, which is attached to a tag that says "is great" to make "8 is great."
To make a yarn card, the giver can draw a design on the front of the card. A flower, an initial or a simple design make good card fronts. Next she needs to get yarn in the colors of the flower such as pink and green. Finally, she glues the yarn over the lines of the flower.Learn more about Birthdays
