The first card idea is a cute whale made with a balloon. This one is very versatile as you can write a personalized message on it depending on the occasion. Perfect card to give as a present to your best friend for his or her birthday.

This DIY Gifts Cards ideas tutorial continues with a Christmas card perfect for the season. I make a colorful Christmas tree from pipe cleaners and buttons. I love how unique and creative this one looks. This is also suitable for anyone – Boyfriend, friends or family!
Who doesn’t love lollipops?! I show how to make some wings from paper which combined with a lollipop form a cute butterfly. Add a lovely quote on top and you have an adorable gift idea for your best friend or boyfriend. This can be used as a card or as a tiny sweet gift itself.
A very cute DIY card for birthday is one using buttons as balloons. I added some white fluffy clouds so that balloons can sail by as floating in the sky. This is one of the cards perfect for a birthday, graduation or other celebration occasions. For best friend, mom, dad or brother.
Another Christmas card idea is a pretty gift card with presents (gifts), made from tube beads. All you have to do is glue the beads in a square shape on the card. You get a unique textured 3d gifts card!
If you don’t have much time a simple stone card is a great idea! Draw a smiley face on a stone and stick it on the piece of cardboard. Add a note: U rock my world! You have an adorable card for your boyfriend, best friend or parents. This could be a cute little gift for Valentines day too!
We all love Olaf from the movie Frozen, right? In the tutorial I show how to make a beautiful winter card with Olaf and sparkly snowflakes. Add your favorite Olaf quote and you have a lovely card, which you can give to your friends for Christmas or birthdays.
Another great holiday card idea is one including reindeers made from a peanut shell. This one is super easy to make but looks so adorable. Draw eyes and a red nose on the peanut shell, stick it on the card and draw ears and horns. You get a cute little Rudolf!
