happy birthday to you.

yay! cards are so much fun to make! and so easy.....and way cheaper than their store-bought counterparts
like this one 
and since birthdays happen so often, let us make a birthday card. ya?
sorry for the bad lighting :)

so you will need 

a card + envelope
two coordinating scraps of fabric
small piece of thin elastic or elastic thread

1. cut out a triangle

2. glue it to the card

3. take the other piece of fabric and cut out a circle. glue it on.

 4. take a small piece of elastic/elastic thread and glue the end underneath the triangle

AH! SO CUTE! take that papyrus!

optional: i then cut out a little heart...

 and glued it onto the envelope

even cuter!!! ah!!!!

oh and guess how long it took? MAYBE five minutes. with taking pictures. so i'm gonna say like two minutes. 

cheap. fast. easy. awesome.
that's my craft motto :)

so try this out, and let me know how it turns out!
happy crafting!
