I was inspired to make this DIY card holder for my daughter’s birthday, as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias®, so she could hang the perfect Hallmark card neatly in her room.
It’s not getting any easier – choosing a gift for my daughter’s birthday that is. Each year her tastes change and mature. This year she is really into art.
Although, I’m still not sure what to get her as a gift, you really helped me choose the perfect birthday card. So, I decided to display it in a whimsical way and inspire her future art projects.
Thank you so much for voting! And now, for the moment you’ve all been waiting for, the winning Hallmark card is, drum roll please…….
The Rainbow Pop-up Musical Card!
Hallmark has so many cards to choose from, but I love this particular card because it is unique, bright, and cheerful. The music it plays is peaceful and fun – so I won’t be annoyed if Audrey presses the button over and over.
DIY Card Holder
Here’s how I made an easy DIY card holder to showcase Audrey’s birthday cards.
Supplies: Wooden Plaque, Paint (I made my own chalk paint), Wide and Thin Ribbon, Sponge Brush, Glue (use a glue gun), Small Clothes Pins
First, I mixed a heaping 1/4 cup of paint with a 1/4 teaspoon grout and gave my plaque 3 coats of the chalk paint mixture. Next, I tied a bow with the wide ribbon and sewed it together so it would not come apart.
Finally, I glued on my ribbon to the back of the plaque; the wide ribbon at the top for a hanger and the thin ribbon on the bottom to hold the cards. To make this quick and easy, use a glue gun or strong craft glue. Krazy glue, that I have pictured above, didn’t work.
It only took me 1/2 an hour! It can also double as a hair clip holder. I love the chalk board feature so I can write special messages or draw pictures for my daughter to brighten her day 🙂
Audrey loves looking at all of her cards each day and plays the song on her music card A LOT! Thanks so much for being apart of her birthday celebration!
