Hey, welcome back! I’ve got a origami birthday card to share with you, and it’s so easy to make. If origami intimidates you, this is a great place to start.
This is an origami kit from my local dollar store. There are 12 pieces of paper in this package, enough to make 6 cupcakes. The fold lines are printed on the paper, and the instructions are easy to follow.
Here’s my finished cupcake. I added tape runner to hold the folds in place, so it lays flat on my card. To add a sentiment, I used the Daffodil Dreams stamp set from Sunny Studio. I stamped the sentiment with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink, and die cut the tag using Traditional Tag Stax from My Favorite Things. Next I made a bow from baker’s twine, using a fork. I attached the bow with Multi Medium Matte from Ranger, and I’m holding the bow in place with a small acrylic block until the glue dries.
I die cut a pale blue panel using the Stitched Rectangle Dies from Simon Says Stamp. Then I attached the panel and the cupcake to the card base with tape runner, and popped up the tag with foam tape. If I had a candle stamp, I would have added it to the top, but I still love the card. You could also add shimmer to the frosting, or sequins for extra decoration.
StampNation just celebrated their seventh birthday, and there are birthday cards everywhere!
