What You Need to Make Handmade Cards

Everyone can make their own cards and you can make them as plain or as as decorative as possible.
  • Card quality paper--You can use any paper if it is stiff enough to fold and will stand up. Craft stores and art suppliers carry a huge stock. Think of buying different colors.
  • Paper Cutting machine--this saves a lot of time and ensure you get clean straight edges. They aren't terribly expensive.
  • Envelopes--you can buy them or you can make them yourself
  • Double sided tape--glues can seep through the paper unless you get a really good one. You can also buy glue dots that are easy to use.
  • Design scissors and paper stamps--these can make fancy edges and cut out shapes to add to your card and are also relatively inexpensive to buy. They do save a lot of time and tears.
  • Embellishments--we all like to add extra touches. You can find bits and pieces around the house, buttons are always useful and you can find so many pretty ones. You can also rescue little trinkets from other cards you have received and keep your eyes open when visiting thrift shops and so on for pieces of ribbon or braid. Use your imagination and be creative in what you use. You can also pick up self-adhesive rhinestones for that extra bit of bling.
  • Learn a few easy crafts like paper folding and making paper flowers--There are some excellent video tutorials on how to make things like paper flowers and paper birds and butterflies that you can add. Quilling is an easy to learn craft and with quilling you can give your card an excellent 3D effect. How to Make a Paper Bird.
