You will need
- colored or white cardboard, colored paper, scissors, glue, decorative ornaments: dried flowers, beautiful buttons, ribbons, beads, stickers, and all that will be at your fingertips.
Decide the size of postcards. You can make the most card that will hang on the wall or stand on a shelf with books or small, which your mother can keep in your purse. Cut a card from cardstock and fold it in half, now you can start decorating.
If you chose white cardboard, you can cover it with beautiful colored paper, to make it brighter. If you choose a coloured cardboard, you can cut corners beautiful patterns or poke them with a shaped hole punch, which is sold in the Department store with stationery.
Use all your imagination to design the cover. Stick to it dried flowers, and decorate the edges with colored ribbon or make ribbon bow and glue it to the corner. Beautiful stickers with patterns adorn the back side of the postcard. You can use foil, make it a snowflake, if your mom has a birthday in winter, from the Golden paper cut zodiac sign. On the Internet you can find a picture of your favorite animal or flower of your mother, and by printing also to stick to the cover of the card.
Draw a portrait of your mom or stick a picture of her. You can find the photo, which depicts the whole family or just you and your mother. In large letters write on top of " happy birthday!" or "Beloved mother".
Compose a verse or search the Internet greetings birthday for my mom. Write him a beautiful pen and in large letters or print on a sheet of paper and attach to the card using double-sided tape.
Don't be afraid to experiment: try to make a few cards and choose the best of them or make a few blanks, placing all the pieces on the card, but not sticking them down and leave only what you enjoy most.
Don't forget to sign and date when was this card or the mother will be very pleased after many years, looking through all previously donated gifts to remember this day and then, when was this gift.
