The Crafty Lass does… Handmade Washi Tape Birthday Card!

Well, the official ‘National Stationery Week’ may be over – but in the words of Sarah Millican on Twitter:

“This week is National Stationery week. For some of us, EVERY week is National Stationery week.”

So, why not carry on your love for stationery and get creative with a handmade birthday card! All you need for this simple idea is some blank card, some scissors and the ever popular – washi tape! 🙂

It was recently a special birthday in this house, and my husband’s favourite colour is green…Understandably this card may be a little bright for some tastes – but go with whatever colours your recipient would love of course 🙂

A very simple card and craft, but I think with an effective outcome!

– Cut out a rectangle of card, in whatever size and shape you would like – and score down the middle so that the card folds nicely in half.

– Cover the front of the card in alternative/contrasting tape to make sure you can see the numbers/font clearly and just trim neatly at the edges.

– I used some Sellotape sticky foam pads to then attach the numbers to the card so that they stood out slightly, but you could just glue straight on.

– ‘Et Voila!’ one personalised, handmade birthday card! 🙂
