How to Decorate a Ready-made Envelope


I started making this greeting card with the envelope. It's one of those envelopes that was lying around so I put it to good use.

I chose this design because I think it looks simple and can be used for different occasions.


  1. First of all, I printed the design onto a piece of paper and measured it against the envelope. I had to do this a few times before it fit.
  2. When it fit the size of the envelope I printed it onto my envelope. As you can see it's not a perfect fit but it doesn't have to be perfect.
  3.  Leave plenty of space in the middle to write the address.


How to Make a Birthday Card

 This card is ideal for birthday's, babies or Father's day and goes great with a homemade gift basket idea.

Just change the colors and wording to suit the occasion.


How to Create a Birthday Card Greeting:


  1. I measured the envelope first then cut some white card-stock 1/4 smaller than the envelope.
  2. The white card-stock measures 7 inches by 10 1/2 inches ( 17.8 cm by 26.7 cm.) When folded in half the card-stock measures 7 inches by 5 1/4 inches ( 17.8cm by 13.3 cm.) Making the card a nice fit.
  3. I cut a piece of blue card-stock measuring 4 1/4 inches by 6 1/4 inches (10.8 cm by 15.9 cm.) 
  4. I cut the edges with decorative scissors. Any kind of decorative scissors will do. Then I glued it to the card, leaving an even boarder all around.
  5. I printed a smaller version of the design onto paper with a colored broader, adding circles to the bottom right and cut it out. You can hand-write or print some wording. 
  6. I glued that to my card.



How to Make a Gift Tag

This gift tag can be used with the card above or on its own. It makes a great gift tag for any homemade gift basket ideas.

  1. I cut a piece of blue card-stock measuring 2 1/2 inches by 4 1/2 inches (6.4 cm by 11.4 cm) and used decorative scissors to cut it out.
  2. I printed the same design as above but smaller adding birthday wishes.
  3. I glued the two together and used a hole pincher to make a hole in the top left corner, then threaded a piece of white ribbon through the hole.



Make your own greeting cards. A handmade birthday card makes fabulous gifts. So give it a go, you can create all kinds of great designs on your computer.
