Oops, I Card-ed.

13 Nov

November is a big month for the fam. Thanksgiving, Mom & Dad’s anniversary, and three birthdays, one of which is MINE. I could drop $18 at Walgreens in the talking card section (and don’t get me wrong, I love me some Hoops & Yo Yo), but I’ve got paper and glue and scissors right here in my apartment. So I’m going to take the higher road to expressing my sentiments on paper, and spend my thought and time instead of my money. Suck it Hallmark.

Here’s what I did:

  • For Mom and Dad:

Notice above, I made a heart with my thumbprints. Notice below, my free-form collage to cover up the fact that this is really the title page to an encyclopedia:

  • Sister:

  • The nearly husband:

I’ve been getting really into kirigami, so I tried a bit on the front and the inside:

They turned out pretty nice, if I do say so myself. The hardest part was actually cutting the paper to make an even card. Ever since I got a “Needs Help” in scissor skills in kindergarten, I shudder when I need to make a seriously precise cut. It killed my career in bomb dismantling, but I’ve recovered enough for kirigami.

Hope you enjoy family! Happy Thanksbirtherversary!
