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 . 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!!
