I love this creative way to make your own birthday card with candles by A Spoonful of Sugar! Lisa used double sided tape to secure the candles to the card, and then she used letter stamps to stamp a personal message. You could also try using a small dab of glue from a hot glue gun to make sure the candles are pretty secure. This cute handmade birthday card is practically free, and wouldn’t take much time or artistic skills to create. Both kids and adults would appreciate this card, and if you’re giving it to a kid, you can use the right number of candles for their birthday. I know my little ones would get a kick out of it.
It would also be fun to doodle or print other details on the card like a cupcake or a cake, or even little flames coming from the tops of the candles. I love the 3D effect of this card, since the candles are actually jumping off the page.
