How to Decorate a Ready-made Envelope

Start by 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 off, 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 fits the size of the envelope, print it onto the 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. Measure 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. 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. Cut the edges with decorative scissors. Any kind of decorative scissors will do. Then glue 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. Then, glue it to the 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. 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. Print the same design as above but smaller adding birthday wishes.
  3. Glue the two together and use a hole puncher to make a hole in the top left corner. Afterwards, thread 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 and create all kinds of great designs on your computer.
