Let's Build a Card Together!

Here is a fun card tutorial for you.  I wanted to do a class with designs suitable for the boys in your life. I loved how this lego card turned out.  Mainly because I love Lego!!!!


It was easy to do and when I thought about it, it was more versatile than originally intended as with a few changes of colour it is great for the girls too:


For anyone popping over from the video tutorial here is the Card Cutting Guide as promised:

I hope you find this design useful next time you have a birthday card to make for someone that loves Lego!

  1. This is such a cool idea Helen. I know several kids wih additional support needs who actually go to 'lego group' as it is a fabulous method to teach them co-ordination & team work but it also addresses some of their need for order and symmetry, so this will be the perfect card for many of them. Some of the girls are more passionate about it than the boys, haha. Thank you so much for sharing another winner :o) x

  5. I saw your idea on TwinkleToes flickr page and had to check out how you made the dots look so 3D. Now I've got to find some glue like that. Great card!!!

    1. Thanks Boo. I am not sure where you are in the world but if you are in the UK the silicone glue is by Pinflair and you will find many craft shops stock it. Elsewhere in the world this brand may not be available but any 3D decoupage silicone glue will do the trick. Hope that helps - have fun with your dots ;-)
