One of our beautiful Madagascar girls had a birthday recently, and I decided to celebrate with a little DIY for her. I’d been wanting to try a (super-simple) pop-up card for a while, and this seemed as good a time as any! I cut out letters spelling “Happy Birthday,” glued and glittered them, and then affixed them to a slim strip of cardstock.
Then I cut a card from the same sheet of cardstock, and affixed the strip of letters to the inside, making sure the letters bent at the right place when the card folded. I glued the ends of the strip of letters about half an inch away from the edges of the card so that the lettering would stand out when the card opened.
A couple of hand-written messages, and that’s all she wrote! A simple, spangly, sweet birthday message. xoxo
