Give a child a piece of paper and a few crayons and you are sure to be amazed with the creativity that flows. Like a child, you too can experiment with crayons.
You can even use different shaped card cutouts to make a greeting.
Card holders are actually cards made in the shape of a folder. You have to use thick paper for this as it can be used to store small cards or papers. Create your design on the front side of the paper, and cut it as per the design. You can choose to keep it like a normal card or convert it into a folder.
You can incorporate just about any idea into this card. An easy way to make the pop-up image is to create the picture on a separate sheet of paper and stick the bottom seam of the picture onto the main card.
The picture will automatically fall parallel to the base of the card. Measure the distance from the upright picture to the upper face of the card. Now take a thin strip of paper and cut it according to this measurement. Stick one end of the strip to the picture and the other end to the top flap of the card.
Once the glue is dry, open the card to reveal the image that pops up. Making pop-up cards is interesting, besides, you'd be creating a wonderful impression on the man you love the most.
Post Card/Note Holder
This idea is inspired from men's wardrobe. Shirt pockets provide a nice storage space for small items and we will give them just that. Draw a shirt pocket shape on a card and then cut out it. Stick it onto the main card thus forming a different layer all by itself.
Sweet Memories Holder
Presenting a pictorial card that takes you down memory lane is a good idea indeed. We suggest you to use handmade paper to make this card.
All you got to do is collect the fond memories you have with the person and create a card which will hold all of them. Simply fold the paper alternatively making equal sections and stick the photographs onto the paper.
Creativity at its Best
To make it extra special you can prepare paper/fabric/ribbon flowers and attach them unto the card.
Let your crazy and creative side do the talking with all these ideas. I am sure you are going to set your man's heart aflutter. You can even try out the scroll and burnt edges idea and prepare a nice greeting for your loved one.
