15 Minute Birthday Badge Gift Card Holder


Happy Wednesday, Friends! Can you believe Ginger Grand celebrated his 6th birthday last week? The fun birthday badge I sent him was a big hit and only took 15 minutes to make. A gift card can be attached, plus most of the craft supplies are from the dollar store!

Being a long distance grandparent has its challenges! I miss my only grandchild dearly and since Ginger Grand has a fine appreciation for crafts, I usually send at least one handmade gift for special occasions. He's always loved books and even more so now that he is reading on his own. I came up with the idea of a birthday badge when I was contemplating a special way to wrap the gift card I planned to give him. It started with this colorful note card, I bought from the dollar store awhile back.

Next, I chose a cute sticker that was large enough to attach the gift card. Ginger Grand loves ladybugs so I used one left from our summer crafts together. I wrote a message for the birthday boy, then used a hole punch on each side of his name.

Now for the front. I added a large #6 in the center and used letter stickers for his nickname in the bottom corner before decorating the badge with more crawling friends.

Last, I added a strand of ladybug ribbon I had on hand, by threading an end through each hole and double knotting at the back. The ribbon was the only craft supply I used for this project that wasn't from the dollar store. Think of all the ways the badge could be personalized. Choose the colors, stickers and occasion that would delight a little one in your life. As an alternative to a gift card, a coupon could be created for a special activity or outing.

Ginger Grand proudly wore his birthday badge from breakfast through the school day and then to a pizza dinner celebration ;)
