How to make DIY birthday cards

Do you want to share your (or your kid’s) creations with other birthday peeps? Then we’ve got four fun ways to turn your coloring sheets into cards, we’ve explained how to go about each one below.

  1. Print four per page and cut them into A6-size cards
  2. Print foldable design on A4 cardstock and fold in two
  3. Print them on regular paper, cut and glue on cardstock paper
  4. Print the foldable design on regular A4 paper and fold in two

4 Options to create birthday cards

1. Print four per page and cut them into A6-size cards

Choose your preferred coloring page (or perhaps all of them!) and set your printer to print four per page (under Page Sizing & Handling, or something similar). Next stock your printer’s drawer with cardstock for a sturdier, more elegant card feel. Cut the pages and color them in!

This is one of my favorite methods because of the sturdy feel of cardstock.

If you’re not sure about the settings, do a small test print before printing the whole batch.

2. Print the foldable design on A4 cardstock and fold in two

Download the foldable birthday coloring pages designed for landscape A4 size.

This format ensures that when you fold the paper in two, you’ll have a stunning birthday card. Check your printer’s compatibility with cardstock paper to make sure the printing runs smoothly.

And if you just want to print one card, simply select the page in your Printer Settings Window.

3. Print them on regular paper, cut and glue on cardstock paper

If handling cardstock paper is tricky for your printer, opt for this hassle-free method. Print the foldable coloring pages on regular A4 paper, cut them to size, and glue them onto folded cardstock for a robust and polished card.

4. Print the foldable design on regular A4 paper and fold in two

For a quick, effortless DIY card, this method is ideal.

Simply print the foldable coloring pages on A4 paper, color to your heart’s content, fold them in two, and voila – a lovely, homemade birthday card is ready!

Funny birthday messages

Add a personal touch and a bit of humor to your cards or coloring pages with our witty birthday messages. Perfect for both DIY cards and colored pages!

Some of my favorites include

  • “You know you’re old when “happy hour” is a nap.”
  • “Fifty, the ultimate F word.”
  • “Young at heart (slightly older in other places).”
  • “You might be prehistoric, but at least you’re not extinct!”
  • “I hope your birthday is better than this card.”
