When it comes to gift giving, making your own greeting cards is perfect for using up leftover supplies and remnants. I like to think of it as a little scrapbook or collage. They’re especially excellent for those awkward pieces of paper or random embellishments. Most importantly, they are way cooler than anything you’ll find in the store. (Just like everything else that is handmade, but maybe I’m just biased?)
For my latest tutorial at Darice, I made these super fun confetti-filled cards for the holidays. The technique is quite simple and the materials are inexpensive; what’s not to love? They were inspired by this $9 version at BHLDN. With a little brainstorming, you can easily use this method for any holiday or occasion. A circle cut out can become a balloon or sun. A triangle can double as an ice cream come. The possibilities are endless, people.
