D.I.Y. Birthday Cards!


I really don't like it that much if a close friend of mine buys me a greeting card, they seem very formal to me. I would prefer a pack of chips over such cards any day (not that much a fan of chocolates you see :/).
But if you gift me a handmade greeting card (along with a gift of course J ), you are going to be on top of my BFF list :D. I believe Handmade greetings show sincere effort and also that you care big time for the respective person. And I’ll warn you beforehand, I can even get very emotional and teary eyed if the greeting calls for it.
“Hobby Ideas” has made making greetings by yourself 10 times easier(You can check out their site http://www.hobbyideas.net/) . If you visit their stores, you will be bombarded with choices and creativity. They even have custom Handmade Card Kits.
I bought this one!!




It costs INR215, and has the raw material to make 5 greetings. Making greeting cards from this kit was a lot of fun and super easy. The possibilites of what you can do with this kit are endless.


Next time you have a close friend’s birthday, do consider making handmade greetings….. And make them shed a tear :D!!
