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!

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