How to Make a Greeting
Making your own greeting cards can be both fun
and rewarding. Many people cherish home-made greeting cards
because they are a true expression of yourself and the person you are
making it for.
The first step in making a greeting card is to determine who you are
making the greeting card for. What interests does the person
have? What is the person's hobbies? Is the person your
friend, family member, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, grandparent,
parent, husband, wife, or significant other?
The next step to making a greeting card is to decide if you want a
funny greeting card or a sentimental greeting card. If you want a
funny greeting card, you will want cut outs of cartoons, or you might
want to draw your own cartoons. If you want a sentimental
greeting card, you might gather cutouts of flower pictures. If
you want a Christian greeting card, you might cut out some pictures of
crosses or bibles. If you can draw your own, that's even
better. But not everyone is an artist!
You also need to decide why you are sending the greeting card. Is
it for a birthday, anniversary, thank you, sympathy, holiday, Mother's
Day, Valentine's Day, or other occasion? Maybe the greeting card
is just because you care. If you want to send a birthday card, a
picture of a birthday cake might be best. Or a picture of a flag
for Independence Day greeting card would be nice.
The next thing you have to do is write the copy for your greeting
card. You can choose a poem you like or one that you know the
person getting the greeting card will like. You could also write
your own poem. You should remember though, that when you copy
someone else's poetry onto your card, you cannot sell the card.
Copyright laws forbid you to sell someone else's work without
permission. But for the purposes of just making a greeting card
for a loved one, copying a favorite poem, saying, or scripture is more
Now that you know what you will put on the greeting card, who it is
for, and why you are sending it, the next step is to gather all the
materials you will need to put the greeting card together. You
will want to gather cut outs of any pictures you want to include, as
well as scissors, paste or glue stick, construction paper, crayons or
markers, a pencil for outlining (in case you make mistakes), and don't
forget your creativity! You may also want some lace, ribbon,
doilies, pretty material scraps, paints, and other items.
The most important thing to remember when creating your own greeting
card is that the sky is the limit! There is no right or wrong way
to make a greeting card. The only thing limiting your greeting
card possibilities is your own creative mind! So break out those
old magazines, poetry books, comic books, and cartoon strips, get those
creative juices flowing, and make the best greeting card ever!
Your loved one is sure to enjoy your hard work, effort, and how much
you care showed by your handmade greeting card for years to come!
