DIY Crepe Paper Cards

I kind of resent buying cards sometimes and usually have everything handy to make my own – which is just a little more personal.

In that spirit, here’s a little DIY I tried out yesterday:



– Card

– Crepe Paper (torn into 4 inch strips)

– Sewing Machine

– Washi Tape

– Fine Black Pen

Place your torn strips of crepe paper staggered on top of each other along one side of the card and sew down the middle.

Snip your threads and then trim the edges of the crepe paper to whatever way you want it to look. Zig-zag, scalloped, straight – whatever you fancy.

Mine is clearly a confused mixture of all three of the aforementioned options.

I then added a small strip of washi tape as the main bit of a candle (idea from this post I saw on pinterest)

Add in a little flame and a greeting and you’re done!
