Handmade Kids Birthday Card Ideas

These super simple, handmade birthday cards for kids, made by Barbara are very striking .  Barbara has used a cutting machine but you could also use scissors, pinking shears or a craft knife to cut out the numbers and print the more detailed 'birthday' text.  The key to these cards is the simple design.  

Handmaking birthday cards may take a little longer than buying them from a supermarket but it means you save a little money and also you can be 100% certain that the child wont be getting the same card.  You can make these cards in batches too which is a great time saving for when you know you are likely to be attending a number of kids birthday parties each year.  You can keep them ready for the next party your child is invited to.
