I have been making these Birthday Counting Cards for Beeper for his last 3 birthdays and he still loves them. In fact, I was informed by another parent that while Beeper was at another birthday party this week, she overheard him proudly telling another kid, "My mom makes the best birthday cards." Nice.
And here is this year's set of counting cards, with this year's loot. Yes, I put an i-Tunes card on the "1" card because he loves music but I was told that what he loved most from the cards were the 7 little photos of his friends--and then the 6 Star Wars mini coloring cards (downloaded and resized)--and then the 4 puffy bug stickers--and then the 2 sticks of fruit stripes gum--and then the 3 tattoos. Yes, the money and the gift card ranked last which just goes to show you do not need money or anything fancy to impress with these cards.
So I thought I would just remind you about my tutorial for these--in case you never had the wherewithal to dig all the way back in my blog archives 2+ years and so never caught this tutorial. It is still one of my favorites--and Beeper's too, apparently.
