DIY: 3D Greeting Cards | Mother's Day, Father's Day, Birthdays + More


I've always loved those 3D cards from Papyrus, but as you may have guessed, I prefer to make my own! With Mother's Day, Father's Day and graduations coming up, making handmade cards is a great way to show your loved ones how much you care. I created a few examples, but you can personalize them for virtually any occasion including birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and more. With the help of one of my favorite craft supplies, 3D adhesive dots, you can add dimension to any card. A great technique for scrapbooking too!

  
Materials for Mason Jar Card: 
Blank greeting card (found online or craft stores. you can also fold a piece of cardstock in half to create your own)
• Colorful cardstock or scrapbook paper
• Tape
3D double-sided adhesive dots
• Cupcake liner
• Sequins (I used heart-shaped ones)
• Twine
• Scissors



Steps for Mason Jar Card: 
Grab your first piece of paper and cut it into the shape of a mason jar. Then, take your second piece of paper and cut out the lid (kind of like a rounded trapezoid).
• Attach the two pieces together by taping the back.
• Cut out the base of the cupcake liner so only the side walls remain.
• Place it over the lid of the jar. Wrap it around the back of the jar and secure with tape.
• Wrap twine around the cupcake liner and tie a knot to secure in place.
• Grab your sequins or anything else you'd like to decorate the jar with and attach with 3D adhesive dots. You can also use a gluestick, but the dots will add some nice dimension. 
• Place a few 3D adhesive dots to the back of the mason jar and attach it to the card.
• Add a personalized message and you're set!

  6. Beautiful cards and I am in awe of those that have the artistic skills to do it as a DIY project. Since I don't, but I hate e-cards and want to send heartfelt, personalized greeting cards by snail mail or give them out in person, I use SendOutCards to enhance the lives of others and make them feel good and know how I feel about them. http://goo.gl/q32wa

  7. My mom actually makes her own cards, and each one of them means the world to me!! The written mode of communication is a lost art, so hopefully this awesome post will be the start of a new movement! ;-)
