Sometimes Birthday Cards from me get a little delayed, so I saw this idea on Pinterest (a Birthday Board…) and thought I would make my own version.
I started out with a round board that was the face of a clock (I’d used the mechanism in another project). I covered the board with Imaginisce Bday Bash paper, inking the edges once I’d trimmed it. I got out Imagine If… Alphabet and Present Time, covering them with coordinating cardstocks and inking the edges. I then attached them to the base with some of the paper candles from the Imaginisce Bday Bash.
Next was a trip to Bunnings for a doorknob, and bit of help from my DH fitting it into the centre of the circle.
Keeping with the circle theme, I made tags – cutting circles of paper and then mounting them on cardstock. I punched a hole and threaded PaperVine Grey Mail Twine through for hanging. I made as many tags as fitted out of the three sheets of paper so that I would have spare ones ready for any new family members that might arrive (either by birth or marriage!). I added the names and dates with my Dymo, then hung the whole thing up next to our calendar – now I shouldn’t forget anyone’s Birthday and might even get cards out on time!
