Greeting Card

DIY Greeting Cards

It’s such a shame but there is most definitely a shortage of good, unique and affordable cards in Hong Kong. Doesn’t matter what the occasion – birthday, anniversary, thank you, get well soon…I can never seem to find any good ones that cost less than HK$50, and even if I do find a good one, I can almost guarantee that someone else has bought the same card! Luckily I have found a great DIY remedy to this problem; by simply using a pre-bought card, scrapbook paper (you can usually buy a booklet of different patterned paper) and a needle and thread.

What you need:

  • Greeting Card
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Needle & Embroidery Thread
  • Spray Glue

Tutorial:

  1. Lay down some newspaper and spray the top of the greeting card with the glue. Stick it flat onto the underside of a sheet of scrapbook paper.
  2. Cut the card out of the paper and fold back into its original shape.
  3. Using the needle and thread, stitch all along the edge of the card.

How easy it that? Obviously this is just a simple template, you can further personalize greeting cards with photos, sequins, glitter, permanent markers, flat-based embellishments…the possibilities are endless! And you’ll never be caught giving a boring or overused greeting card ever again!
