Hello hello my loves 🎀
Even if we are already in mid-January, I would still like to take this opportunity to all of you Happy New Year 2023 with lots of creativity and great moments wish 🎉🍀
Well, which one of you has been around for so long that you remember this post DIY Typo Bild + my problem with the 1st week of the year? You can already read a bit from the title what I’m getting at. That’s when I wrote about it creative holewhich I feel like every year 🙈
I’m full of ideas for autumn, Advent/Christmas and New Year’s Eve. I feel like I can only implement 10% of what’s buzzing around in my head…
And suddenly here we are – it’s January… And I’m falling into a creative hole. It’s still the dead of winter. It’s still cold and it’s still getting dark early outside.
But actually I’m ready to welcome spring: warmth, sunshine, blooming flowers and plants, colors – where are you?
Unfortunately, spring is still taking its time… So, what can I offer thematically here on the blog? winter projects? Nah, I’m not in the mood for that 😅 Spring? Actually a bit too early…
But actually I found a topic for myself that I can stand behind completely. Namely birthday!! 🎂🎈
birthdays are very little interested in seasons and weather. There are always 😊
And since I usually make and show more feminine birthday cards, I thought it was time for a more neutral card – which really everyone can get. No matter what gender and what age 😉
We take a blank folding card. On the front we slit 4 lines. Shape these and then push the candle and match through these slots. Sound easy? Is simple! And the cool thing – the card has a wow effect despite its simplicity 🤩
Step-by-step instructions: DIY birthday card with a candle and a match
Folding card blank kraft paper [*]
pen + ruler
Cutter [*] + Matte
Pens/stamps/stickers to design
candle silver [*]gold [*]rainbow [*]
- Draw 4 parallel lines for match + candle
- here are all the lines: 2.5 cm long
- drive along the lines with a cutter (do not forget to put the mat underneath)
- Design the card according to your mood with the pen/stamp/sticker/label maker
- Push candle + match through the slots + position
And your simple but stylish card with wow effect is done 🤩
If you want to use the birthday card to leave a few nice, personal lines – then make sure to use a folding card 😉
I also cut the silver birthday candles in half with the cutter. I sharpened the lower half of the candle with an old sharpener, so that I made 2 out of 1 long candle 😄
And with that, I say goodbye to my first DIY contribution for 2023 and look forward to many more projects with you 💝 Cheers!
