D.I.Y. Birthday Card

What you’ll need: A Vera Bradley Note Card, a Pocket Pal in the same color, thread or string, glue and scissors.

D.I.Y. Birthday Card1. Tear out the front or back page of your Pocket Pal. You will need to measure and cut 5 ¾-inch-by-¾-inch squares. If using the Viva la Vera pattern (shown), you can just cut along the lines.

D.I.Y. Birthday Card2. Fold your squares in half, on the diagonal, and cut a piece of string about 11 inches long.

D.I.Y. Birthday Card3. Place glue on the inside of your squares, and fold over the string. Press firmly and let dry.

D.I.Y. Birthday Card4. Tie a knot on each side (between the end and the flag) of the string. Write your message inside the card, towards the center so it falls below your garland. Cut a small slit in the top of the card, about 1/4 inch in from the opening. Slip your string into the slit so that the knot catches on the outside of the card. Trim the excess string.

D.I.Y. Birthday Card5. Send to a loved one in celebration of their special day!
