DIY Project - A Handmade Birthday Card

With all the birthdays that are coming up in my life, I've been looking for some nifty birthday card ideas that I can make with the supplies I have on hand. I'm not an avid scrapbooker, but I do have lots of cardstock and other odds and ends that you'd find in a craftstore. I absolutely HATE purchasing Hallmark cards (can you say generic, expensive, and a perfect item that finds its way to the trash after you leave the party?), so when I fell upon this little tutorial this morning, I knew exactly what I wanted to blog about today. Who doesn't love a handmade card?

Surprise! Happy Birthday!

Balloon explosion card!

I'm going to make a few different varieties of these today and tuck them away until we need one for a birthday. My day has planned itself already (around Landon's playtime, naptime, lunchtime) - perfect!
