Directions:

1. I used a small card as a template for my project. I began by laying it flat on top of my card stock. I traced the shape of the card onto the card stock and cut it out. Then I folded the card stock in half.

2. For the first card, I cut a few strips of washi about 8 cm long to create faux birthday candles. I cut one end straight across horizontally and the other end I cut on a diagonal. I did this with three strips of washi and stuck them to the card side by side. Using a black fine-tip marker and an orange highlighter, I created a faux wick and flame.

 

3. I used a fine-tip marker to write the words “happy birthday” on the card.
