How To Make a Get Well Card

This 'Get well!' card was easy to make. There 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. Handmade get well card.

  1. Cut out a flower from a piece of 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. Sew a big button into the middle, I chose light brown.
  4. Sew around the edge of the fabric onto a piece of yellow cardstock(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. Then, cut the white paper 1/4 inch (0.6 cm) smaller that the yellow cardstock.
  3. Lastly, glue the white paper, starting in the middle fold then glue the rest of the paper to the yellow cardstock.

  1. Cut out a flower from 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 cardstock using red cotton (you can sew this by hand).
  3. Cut around the flower, leaving a small boarded.
  4. Sew a button in the middle of the flower, I chose a red button.
  5. Glue it all onto a piece of yellow cardstock and cut around the flower leaving a small boarder.
  6. Use a hole puncher to make a hole so that you can thread a piece of yellow ribbon through, or any color you choose.

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 entire envelope. If I was to post this card to my friend, I would have to limit the decorating to a minimum.

How to make the envelope.

  1. First, 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 four sides.
  3. For the yellow flowers, I used a flower puncher and punched four flowers out. 
  4. Afterwards, I glued them to the four corners and colored the centers with red crayon.
  5. The middle of the envelope is where 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 "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 two notches on both sides in the middle and two at the top corner of the paper.
  • I folded the four 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).
