Quick and Easy Birthday Cards for Forgetful Friends


It can be hard to remember all the birthdays of your close family and friends. But with just a few supplies, you can make quick and easy birthday cards that will remind your forgetful friends that they are loved. In this post I'm going to share how to make DIY birthday cards in no time at all (and without breaking the bank). With these tips and tricks, you will never miss a birthday again! 

Why Make DIY Cards?

Making your own birthday cards can be a fun and creative way to celebrate your friends’ special day. Plus, it won’t cost you an arm and a leg! With just a few simple materials, you can create personalised cards that are sure to put a smile on the face of your nearest and dearest. 

How To Make Physical DIY Cards

One option is to go old-fashioned and create your own DIY cards, and this is a simple process.

Step One: Preparing Your Materials
You can find most of these items at any craft store, or you can even use items that you already have around your home. Here’s what you’ll need: card, marker pens, scissors, a glue stick, and a few decorative items such as stickers, ribbons, or buttons. To get started, gather all of your materials and arrange them on a flat surface. This will make it easier to create your cards. Then, cut your card into the desired size for your card and fold it in half.

Step Two: Decorating Your Card
Now that you’ve prepped your card, you can start decorating! Use marker pens, stickers, or other decorative items to give your card a unique look. Get creative and have fun.

Step Three: Writing Your Message
Once you’ve finished decorating the outside of your card, it’s time to write the message inside. Think of a heartfelt or humorous message that will make the recipient smile. You can also include a funny joke or quote if you wish. If you're not inspired there are plenty of thoughtful quotes or ideas online that you could use instead.

Step Four: Find A Cute Envelope
When you’re done crafting your card, find a cute envelope to put it in. You can use store-bought envelopes or make your own with some extra card. If you're posting the card, then you'll want to write the address on the front - but if you're hand delivering, why not get creative with the envelope too.

How To Make Digital DIY Cards 

Want to put your digital skills to the test, then why not try making a digital card instead? You’ll need a computer, graphics software, and some design skills to get started. But don't worry if you're not at all artistic, there are simpler options too!

Step One: Gather Supplies
To make digital cards, you’ll need a computer and an image-editing program (such as Photoshop or Gimp). You can also use free online tools such as Canva to make your card.

Step 2: Choose A Template
To make your life easier, start by choosing a template from an online template library or create your own from scratch. This will give you a good starting point and make the design process much simpler.

Step Three: Add Photos And Text
Next, add photos and text to your card. You can use stock images or upload your own photos to make the card more personal. Then, type in your heartfelt message or funny joke. If you want to make the card feel more personal, you can always leave the inside of the card blank so you can still hand-write the message instead.

Step Four: Save And Print
When you’re done designing the card, save it as a PDF file and then print it out. Once printed, fold the card along the lines and you’re all set! You could always use a professional online printing service to get the best quality for your card if you don't have the equipment at home.

How To Make E-Cards

Another option is to use e-cards, which are digital cards that you can send via email. The best option for sending to someone who lives in a different country, or loves their modern tech!

Step One: Choose An E-card Service
If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to send birthday cards, consider sending an e-card. You can find many free services online, or purchase themed cards from sites like Hallmark.

Step Two: Customise Your Card
Once you’ve chosen a service, customise your card by selecting a design and adding photos and text. Some services allow you to send cards directly from their website or through email.

Step Three: Send Your Card
Once you’re happy with your card, hit the send button! Your recipient will receive the card instantly to their inbox, so you don’t have to worry about forgetting a birthday ever again. How clever is that?

DIY cards are a great way to show your friends and family that you care, and can be done easily even if you’re a forgetful friend. With these tips on how to make DIY birthday cards, you’ll never have to worry about missing a birthday again! Whether you choose to make physical cards or send an e-card from somewhere like Tickle Fluff, your friends will be sure to appreciate the thought and effort you put into their special day.
