3D Birthday Banner DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

A long time ago, I pinned this beautiful cake I’d come across by Sarah at Signe Sugar. I loved it so much, it inspired me to create this paper banner version. I had no idea how to go about it, so I just jumped into cutting, bending and gluing. Once I got the hang of it, it came together pretty quickly. And, if you mess up, it’s just paper – -  so just cut another piece and keep moving forward!

Matchbox Birthday Card

by Kathleen Ballos

I love including a little treat in with birthday cards. Usually the treats have to be flat (like stickers or temporary tattoos) but not for this birthday card! Repurpose an empty matchbox into a unique birthday card with a fun surprise inside! Paired with a homemade cupcake, wouldn’t this be the sweetest gift ever?
