If you need a birthday card, or Father’s day card maybe, for someone who loves bikes and cycling, then this simple bike themed card might be just what you need.
It’s really quick and easy to make, and you only need a few materials to be able to put it together.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- A card blank, or piece of card folded in half
- 2 buttons
- A pen (or a few pens in different colours if you fancy something more colourful)
Making the card is really super easy.
First you need to glue the two buttons down for the wheels of the bike. Then draw the rest of the bike around them. I’m not the best at drawing so kept my bike really simple but you could draw something a bit more elaborate if you wanted to and have the skills!
Then all that’s left to do is write the caption above the bike.
I used the caption ‘have a wheelie great day’, and went with simple handwriting. Full disclosure here, I wrote the phrase directly on my card first and it went a bit wonky. So I wrote it again on a little piece of card and stuck that over the original writing. I actually quite like how this looks, as it gives a slight 3d element to the card.
If you’d rather you could type the phrase on the computer and play around with different fonts to find something you like. Then just print it out small enough to fit on the card, and stick it on.
And there you have it.
A really simple greetings card for the bike (and pun) lover in your life. I think this card would be great for Father’s day and for birthdays, or even just as a general note card for people who still like to send letters in the post!
You don’t have to use this phrase either, you could go with something like ‘I think you’re wheelie great’ or ‘I wheelie love you’, pretty much any phrase that would normally have the word ‘really’ in it.
If you’ve still got more buttons lying around to get creative with, then this family cycling picture idea from Kelly Allen Writer looks like a fab crafty activity to do with your children.
