Popup Happy Birthday

By Ashley Page Norton

When I saw these silver foil Helvetica stickers, I knew I had to use them somehow! This popup happy birthday message would look great set up on a coworker’s desk or as a surprise somewhere around the house (like in a medicine cabinet or on top of a dresser). You can customize the message by adding the recipients’s name or changing it to say whatever you like. It would also be cute to mail them to a long distance birthday boy or girl – they can unscramble the letters and set them up wherever they want!

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?

Scalloped Favor Bag DIY

by Sally J Shim

Simple and sweet party favors are the best in my book. I always keep a stash of glassine bags in various sizes handy. Add a scalloped flap to the top of the bag along with a personalized message and you are good to go. I used patterned origami paper for this project, but you can use solid or patterned cardstock or even fabric.
