This DIY birthday card is easy to make and will show any Friends fan out there that you care. You can make this card in about 10 minutes, and it will be a meaningful gift.
Supplies Needed To Make This Friends Birthday Card:
- 1 sheet of purple cardstock
- 1 sheet of yellow or gold cardstock
- 1 sheet of white cardstock
- Black, red, yellow, and blue markers
- Hot glue gun or other adhesive
How To Make A Friends Birthday Card
- Fold The Purple Piece Of Paper In Half
Starting with an 8.5 x 11 inch piece of purple cardstock, fold it in half to get a 8.5 x 5.5 inch card. For the Friends theme, picking a shade of purple like this one will match the purple walls of Monica’s apartment perfectly.
- Trim The White Cardstock
The next step to make this Friends birthday card is to cut a 3 x 4 inch piece of white cardstock. You will use this piece of paper to write on.
- Write Your Text
After cutting your white piece of paper to write on, use a black marker to write “The one where it’s your birthday”. Be sure to leave extra space between each letter in “BIRTHDAY” because you will need it to add in dots later.
- Add Dots Between The Letters In “BIRTHDAY”
Next, to give it the full Friends font treatment you will add colored dots between each letter in the word “BIRTHDAY”. Alternate between red, blue, and yellow dots.
- Put Your Message Into The Frame
Next, use your hot glue gun or adhesive to attach the white paper with your message on to the yellow piece of paper leaving at least a few inches of yellow around each side.
After gluing, you will cut around the white piece of paper in waves to make the yellow paper look like the infamous Friends frame.
- Draw Yellow Swirls To Accent The Frame
The next step to create this Friends birthday card is to use your yellow marker again and draw swirls on the frame to accent the frame.
- Glue Your Frame To The Card
The last step to create your Friends birthday card is to glue the frame with your message on to the purple paper that you folded in step 1. Use the hot glue gun or adhesive to attach the frame in the center of the card.
Now Your Friends Birthday Card Is Ready To Go!
Now that the card is complete, all you have to do is write your message to the recipient on the inside and stick it in an envelope.
