Birthday Card

i don’t usually ‘do’ birthday cards, but I had an urge.


It was for a friend called Alistar, who I sometimes call Ali-Star, so it seemed apt. The card itself is squarish, with the stars shadow cut out of the front and a few layers of star shaped card cut outs layered on.

The best bit is the badge. I made it from poster board and coloured card, with a safety pin held on the back with trusty duct tape.


But it stays in place on the card itself using the power of magnetism! I curled some wire into a swirl and hammered it flat to stick to the card, and set a super strong magnet in an indent on the back of the badge. It worked really well, and was great fun to make (and give!).
