Hi Susan...just wanted a unique birthday card for my boyfriend...any ideas? thank you so much.



Hi Raisa

Anything handmade will always be unique :) That is why I love to make cards and gifts for my loved ones.

The card that came immediately to mind for you to make is a candy bar card. You can make such a card so totally unique! Buy some candy bars or small, wrapped chocolates with names on them that you can work into a message made up just for him, and then attach the candy bars in place so they spell out words or parts of words in your message.

Another idea is to make a wallet type card with pockets in it for special gift tags. It is up to you to put a 'gift' on the tags. Offer a back rub, cooking a favourite meal, going with him to his favourite sport, things like that. Use your imagination with the gift token idea :)

Or you could make a banner card with a special message. Make it in his colours with soem embellishments about his favourite thing to do.

I hope these ideas get your creative talents going!

Happy crafting
