Camille has been invited to several birthday parties this month. Though I adore celebrating, there is that little thing, the card and wrapping paper. I really love wrapping a gift, but not the cost or even waste behind birthday cards and wrapping paper. We really try to minimize around here (using old paper, tissue paper, brown bags, newsprint, etc) and making cards.
This weekend’s gift was no exception. Cami and I made a cute card perfect for the different parties she’ll be attending this month.
• Already painted watercolor paper (approximately 4 X 12 inches)
• Washi Tape (sent to us c/o Washi Wishes)
• A handcarved stamp (you can also find inexpensive birthday stamps at Michael’s)
The card turned out really cute. Camille took off and wrote and drew pictures on the inside. The washi tape added that extra dimension to the paper and I added it to the tissue wrapped gift just to give it a little contrasting color.
May… so many birthdays! Both Chris, my grandpa and my brother-in-law have May birthdays. It seems to be a popular month.
