Whenever there is an occasion, my mom would always buy greeting cards in packs especially for Christmas and New Year season. For birthday cards however, mom would always tell us to make our own since the person who will receive the card would be happier.
Making your own přání k narozeninám are easy although it may require a lot of stuff which you don’t need to use all at the same time anyway. Crafting tools, different types, colors and shapes of paper, glues, stickers, glitters, pens and so much more are some of the things that you might need.
Designing your own birthday cards also gives you the ability to match it perfectly to the celebrant’s personality, this way he or she would really feel special receiving it. I remember making one for our grandma and my sister and I tried our best to paint a picture of her, although I think we only got the white hair right. Our parents also kept all of the cards we gave them until I can remember including the readymade ones that we started buying when we could find time to make one or already have the money to spend on good looking greeting cards from the shop.
A simple colored paper would do, although you can always choose the thickness of the paper that you will use depending on the thinks that you plan to stick on it. Heavier designs require thicker base of the card to make sure it can hold everything. You can them play with different colors and shapes and maybe with some glitters too.
If you love crafting, not only you can make great birthday cards but also birthday presents such as photo frames and scrap books all made from scratch and by you. Sure no one would ever have the same gift as you gave them.
