"It's just a Number!" Collage _ If you know how old your birthday gal or guy is turning, then take it to the next level! Start cutting out their birthday number from magazines, newspapers, bus schedules, junk mail flyers, and start collecting! If you can't find a lot of numbers, start spelling out the number, for instance, s_i_x_t_e_e_n, from letters found in different media. The spelling of the birthday age will help to fill out the card collage. The letters for spelling out the age do not have to be the same font or color __ think of those infamous ransom notes and create your collage with that effect in mind.
"It's all about you!" Collage _ If you know the birthday person well then this will be easy! Start collecting images of their favorite things: television shows, favorite band or singers, foods, sports, movies, games, etc... Then put together a collage that celebrates them as a person! If you have a picture of the two of you, then make that the centerpiece of the card so she or he will always remember who made the very special birthday card! This will really show how much time you spend thinking about them and cooking up this homemade birthday card.
