Make someone's big day extra special by creating one of these adorable handmade birthday cards. We have all the inspiration you need to make perfect DIY birthday cards.

Paper Tassel Card

A stunning DIY birthday card doesn't have to take hours. Start with a blank card (we love the metallic accents here!) and add a fun homemade touch. To make a tissue paper tassel, cut several long strips of paper and fold each in the middle; tie off with a ribbon, and thread the ribbon through a punched hole on the front of the card. 

Paper Florals Card

Make a DIY birthday card that doubles as a work of art. Create a colorful floral arrangement in the recipient's favorite colors and attach them to the front of a blank card. When you give the card, gift a pretty frame as well so your recipient be able to display the card as a work of art. 

Cupcake Card

Nothing says birthday like a good cupcake, and we love how cute this DIY birthday card idea is! Cut a cupcake top from sparkly paper and use corrugated paper or crepe paper to form the bottom—and don't forget the bow! Glue on pink beads for the sprinkles. Add a clever phrase, and pop the card in an envelope for easy gifting. 

Hand-Stitched Card

Make a clever handmade card for everyone on your birthday list this year. We love how simple (and adorable!) this hand-stitched card is. Start with a cardstock rectangle that is slightly smaller than the front of a patterned card and add stitching in various colors; attach to the front of the card with glue. Add a sweet phrase to finish the birthday card. 

Party Hat Card

Make an adorable birthday party hat card in the recipient's favorite colors, or match the card to the theme of their birthday party. We love the way this DIY birthday card idea will commemorate a child's birthday! 

Wrapped Present Card

This easy birthday card idea is fast and simple. Start with a blank card and attach a thin rectangle in a contrasting pattern to the top. Add a ribbon and bow to top off this pretty handmade card. 

Fold-Out Card

This sweet fold-out birthday card idea is a great one for the kids to help with. Start with a long sheet of paper and fold accordion-style; have your child cut a heart or flower shape from each fold. Unfold the card and use glue or tape to fill in one of the cutouts using a contrasting color of paper. 

Flowerpot Card

Give the gift of pretty blooms for birthdays of any season with a pretty paper flower card. Form a colorful flowerpot with patterned paper and ribbon, and add layered paper blooms secured with buttons or brads. 

Pink Party Hat Birthday Card

Make an adorable DIY birthday card with fun patterns and rainbow tissue paper. To make the hat, cut a triangular shape from patterned cardstock and adhere strips of tissue paper to the top and bottom. Then glue the hat to a bright circle cutout and attach a handwritten cutout note to the front of the card. 

Photo Keepsake Card

We love the idea of making a DIY keepsake card for a child's birthday. Use printed photos from the previous year to decorate the front of the card, and embellish with patterned paper and cutout shapes. 

Sugar and Spice Card

This easy DIY birthday card is simple but oh-so-sweet. Load colored paper into your printer and print a sweet message for the birthday girl or boy. Cut the printed message into a simple banner and attach to the front of a patterned card. Add a pre-cut shape and pop in an envelope. 

Pastel Birthday Icons Card

This DIY birthday card idea is perfect for adding pictures and images to a card without the mess of stamps or ink. Use your computer to print birthday emblems onto a few colors of cardstock; use a circle punch to cut them out. Attach them to a card and finish off with thin ribbon.

Pink Stitched Flower Card

This DIY birthday card will make you look like a master crafter, but the card is actually super easy to make. Pick out a paper with a pretty floral pattern and use it as a guide for stitching. Dot the flower center with a sticker and add a birthday message to complete the look!

Unicorn Birthday Card

This DIY unicorn card is perfect for any birthday celebration. Make  pink felt flowers and colorful leaves, then glue a unicorn horn and ears to the card. Glue the felt flowers and leaves over the top of the glitter shapes, then use a black marker to finish this fun pink birthday card.
