Happy Birthday Cards

I am well overdue for a roundup of birthday cards, which is actually very good because I’ve spotted oodles of super cool birthday greetings in my recent web travels, and they’ve been beckoning to me from my birthday card bookmarks folder. Yes, greeting cards CAN beckon to you if you’re a crazy paper fiend!

So, without further ado, here’s a little collection of fun, funny, and just plain awesome birthday cards:

Origami Birds & Foxes by Britta Manger

Patterned Origami Bird | Britta Manger

I am all about these super cool origami birds and foxes by Britta Manger and love the unique aesthetic that she’s brought to this traditional paper craft. The little origami creatures feature great patterns in modern colorways and would make great decorations, toys, or even embellishments for special gifts.

The birds and foxes are available premade, and, if you’re a paper crafter, you can also purchase do-it-yourself kits. Available in Britta’s shop and through Babasouk.
