Hello, my pretty little readers!

Today I’m going to show you how to make yet another greeting card in only 5 steps. (The first in this series can be found here.)

The finished product will look something like this:

I love how bright and colorful it is, and it was so easy to make. Read on to learn how I did it!

Time:

5-10 minutes

Materials:

  • Scissors
  • Glue (I always just use Elmer’s and it works fine!)
  • Flat paper bow (there are several tutorials online such as this one from Craftsy)
  • Enamel stickers or rhinestone stickers in a coordinating color
  • Washi tape in coordinating colors OR scrapbook paper
  • A blank card (I have some from Michael’s that I use but you can buy simple white cards and envelopes online here)
Washi tape, paper bow, and enamel stickers

Cost:

  • One of the sheets of enamel stickers that I found on Amazon worked out to 11 cents per sticker.
  • The blank cards linked above work out to around 38 cents a piece.
  • Scrapbook paper is around 25 cents per sheet x 3 (for the bow and stripes)

Grand total = $1.24 per card! Not too shabby, really.

This will be more expensive if you use washi tape instead of scrapbook paper.

Instructions (Only 5 Steps!):

1. Add a piece of the wider washi tape along the card, somewhere near the bottom. Alternatively, you can cut a strip of paper and glue it down.

2. Add a piece of the thinner washi tape on top of that, or cut a thinner strip of paper in a different color to glue on top. I ended up moving the orange piece up a little, as you can probably see.

3. Glue down the paper bow. Make sure to center it on the washi tape or paper. It should look something like this:

4. Space out the enamel stickers along the thinner (in this case, blue) washi tape or paper.

5. This step is really optional. I didn’t like how the pattern in the middle of the bow was perpendicular to the pattern on the rest of the bow, so I added a small bit of paper to cover that up, and got the final product!

Final Thoughts:

That wasn’t too hard, was it? 🙂 I can’t wait to post more 5-step design ideas!

If you missed my other two posts, I showed you how to make a different 5 step greeting card here and how to make a 5 step birthday card here.

As always, remember to connect and share on social media, and I’ll see you again Monday!
