DIY Birthday Cards {Free Printable}

Over the last couple months I’ve been making some fun DIY birthday cards for friends and family! I have a pile of scrapbook paper that I bought at a garage sale a few years back and it’s literally just been sitting in my craft storage bin ever since. I have high hopes of someday completing our wedding and honeymoon scrap books…and a baby scrapbook.. I’m not sure what it is but whenever I sit down to lay out the pages I draw a blank and just can’t figure out how I want it. I kind of like my mom’s method where she had all of us kids make the scrapbook for her. I’ll need to wait a few years and probably have a few more kids before that can happen 😉 Anyway, I thought I might as well start putting the paper to use and make some cards.

I made each one just a tad different. I even whipped out my fake calligraphy skills.
