Deadpool Birthday Card

I wasn't going to post about this but it made me laugh so much I had to share. It was my boyfriend's birthday at the weekend and I made him this card...

Deadpool with a birthday banner!
I'd seen the idea of the banner in a card before but having Deadpool holding it was a stroke of genius. Also, I thought Thor would've been too hard to make out of paper...

The birthday banner is just folded pieces of paper glued around a piece of sewing thread, one for each word. Once I'd stuck the paper Deadpool in the middle of the card I poked a hole by each of his hands and put the thread through. I made sure the 'birthday' was hanging lower than the 'happy' and then used sticky tape on the outside of the card to keep the thread in place.


I kept the outside of the card pretty simple, since the inside is the best bit. I just needed something that would cover up the sticky tape, so I cut out some balloons from coloured paper and added more thread for the strings. I tied these together and added a name tag.


 On the back I used one balloon to cover the sticky tape, and let him know who the card was from.


The birthday boy was very happy with his card!
