File Folder Birthday Card

Hello We R fans, and Happy Friday! It’s Aly here again to share a Template Studio project with you. Have you ever bought a group card for someone only to discover that there’s just not enough room for everyone to sign? Well today I’ve got a solution for you! The Template Studio File Folder Guide allows you to make custom size file folders that can also double as large scale DIY group cards. Check out the jumbo birthday card I made below.

I used my Template Studio to create an 8.5 x 11 inche file folder from some Bazzill Basics Dotted Swiss Poster Board. The instructions were easy to follow, and it took me minutes to create my custom file folder.

After I made my file folder, I embellished the front with some papers, ephemera, and stickers from the Flower Girl collection.

I love adding a touch of gold to my projects, so I used some gold foil Thickers from the Wildflower collection, and then punched some letters with my new Mini Alphabet Punch Board using gold paper from the 3×5 Metallic Paper Pad. I got three letters from one sheet.

To decorate the inside of the card I added a strip of Macaron patterned paper and some punched letters spelling “Happy Birthday”, with a Macaron sticker accent.

And since the inside of the card is so big, there’s still plenty of room for everyone to sign the card. Awesome!
