Types of Easy Homemade Birthday Cards

There are many different types of homemade cards that you can make. Given here are some of the simple ideas that you can try out if you are making cards at home.

Giant Cards

These are probably the easiest cards to make. Take a full length chart paper and fold it to create a card like structure. Now use the instructions given here to create a card that you want.

Pop-up Cards

Who does not like to receive pop-up cards? To open a card and have a surprise waiting for you can make most people very happy.
While it can seem like making pop-up cards is a huge task, you could not be further away from the truth. A piece of spring or a sponge stuck to the back of the folded pop-up figure and then stuck to the center of the card should do the trick easily.

From round cards, to square cards, to pentagonal cards, there is no end to the creativity that you can employ to create fun homemade birthday cards in different shapes and sizes.

Unique Cards

You can also make a wine glass the canvas for your birthday wishes. With such cards the sky is the limit for your creativity.
