Every once in awhile you need a special birthday card. Try this one.Download the letters that spell "Happy Birthday" here.
white card stock
small round kraft-paper box
1" diameter hole punch
double stick tape (optional)
Print the birthday letters on a sheet of white card stock. Turn the hole punch upside down and place each letter in the middle of the opening. Punch.
Cut a 1/2" strip of paper from side of the paper then punch out all of the letters around the edges. Cut two lines along the inside edges of the punched holes (refer to the above picture) in order to reach the inside letters and punch them out.
Leave about 3 inches on the end of the ribbon then rub stick glue on the back of both "Y"s. Stick them together sandwiching the ribbon in between. Leave about a 1/2" space then place the "A"s on the ribbon as before. Repeat until all the letters are glued to the ribbon. Place the "happy" tag at the end. Leave a 6" tail on the ribbon then cut it at an angle.
With the sharp end of your scissors, poke one slot in the center of the bottom (excuse the mess but it is hard to take price tags off of these boxes) and two slots each 1/2" on either side of the center on the top. Thread the "Y" ribbon end through the bottom slot and the "happy" end up through one slot and down through the other slot on the box top. Glue or use double stick tape to adhere the ribbon ends to the box.
