How to Make a Special Get Well Card


This is the perfect gift to go with a get well gift basket. Or how about a sugar free gift basket. It's a good time to think about healthy eating and introduce new exiting foods.


Below are easy to follow step-by-step instructions on how to make the best get well soon greeting card. So, lets get started!





How to Make a Get Well Card

This get well card was easy to make. Their is no drawing involved just a bit of sewing with a sewing machine, but don't worry, if you don't have a sewing machine you can also sew it by hand. 


  1. I cut out a flower from a piece of my leftover lace curtains. The flower measures 3 1/4 inches across. (8.3 cm)
  2. The flower was sewn onto a piece of dark brown cotton fabric with red cotton using the flower petals as a sewing guide. (you can sew this by hand)
  3. I sewed a big light brown button into the middle.
  4. I sewed around the edge of the brown fabric onto a piece of yellow card-stock. (you can sew this by hand)



Inside the Get Well Card:

Covering the inside of a greeting card like this one, hides all the mess of the sewing. The white paper can also be decorated with pretty images, fancy edging and nice get well soon greetings.


  1. To cover the sewing stitches and make it look neat and tidy I printed a flower and a get well soon greeting, "Get well soon flower!",  in red ink onto a piece of white paper.
  2. I cut the white paper 1/4 inch (0.6 cm) smaller that the yellow card-stock.
  3. I glued the white paper, starting in the middle fold then glued the rest of the paper to the yellow card-stock.



How to Make a Get Well Gift Tag

This gift tag would look great attached to a get well gift basket, don't you think?

This flower shaped gift tag is easy to make. It's made in the same way as the card above, but the only difference is, is that I cut around the flower to give it more shape. To make this tag I.....


  1. .....cut out a flower from my leftover lace curtains. The flower measures 3 1/4 inches across. (8.3 cm)
  2. Using my sewing machine I sewed the flower onto a piece of brown card-stock using red cotton. (you can sew this by hand)
  3. I cut around the flower leaving a small boarded.
  4. I sewed a red button in the middle of the flower.
  5. I glued it all onto a piece of yellow card-stock and cut around the flower leaving a small boarded.
  6. Then I used a hole punch to make a hole to thread a piece of yellow ribbon through.



How to Make an Envelope

This envelope was made from brown packing paper, the one that comes on a role for packing parcels.

Because I hand delivered this get well soon card I could decorate the envelope all over. If I was to post this card to my friend I would have to limit the decorating to a minimum.


To make this envelope.....

  1. ........I made a template to the size of my get well card.
  2. I got a rubber stamp with the words "Get Well Soon!" and stamped all 4 sides.
  3. For the yellow flowers, I used a flower puncher and punched 4 flowers out, glued them to the 4 corners and colored the centers with red crayon.
  4. The middle of the envelope is were you can write a few words, like the name of the person or some kind of get well greetings.



Instructions on How to Make an Envelope

  • The front of my get well soon card measures 6.7 inches by 5.5 inches (17 cm by 14 cm). So, the "A" square is slightly bigger than the card, about 2/16 of an inch (0.5 cm). (all around, this is for a nice fit).


  • The front of my get well soon card measures 6.7 inches by 5.5 inches (17 cm by 14 cm). So, the "A" square is slightly bigger than the card, about 2/16 of an inch (0.5 cm). (all around, this is for a nice fit).
  • The "B" square measures 6.9 inches wide by 5.3 in high (17.5 cm wide and 13.5 cm high)
  • From the left and right edges of the card I measured 1.4 of an inch (6 cm). 
  • I cut out 2 notches on both sides in the middle and 2 at the top corner of the paper.
  • I folded the 4 sides inwards and I glued down the outside, I brought "B" up and glued to "A".
  • For the triangle piece at the top I divided the width in half (6.7 inches divided by 2 = 3.35 inches) (17 cm divided by 2 = 8.5 cm)
