A little birdie told me you want to make a handmade birthday card for someone special. Well, this Little Birdie DIY Birthday Card is a mini adult coloring page turned homemade card that will be a great surprise for a colleague or neighbor or anyone else that might not necessarily expect you to know when they celebrate a birthday.

The adorable little bird design is in the style of stress relieving free coloring pages for adults, with some extra detail and definition that you won’t find on coloring pages for children. Not only will you be giving a handmade card but a piece of art as well.

Materials List

  • A copy of the provided adult coloring design
  • 8.2" x 6" light yellow marbled cardstock
  • 5.6" x 4" yellow sugar paper
  • 24-color set of Marco Raffine watercolor pencils
  • 12-color set of Faber Castell watercolor pencils
  • Pilot extra fine white pen
  • Quick-drying craft glue (such as Bostik Clear)
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Ruler

Instructions:

  1. Click here to download a copy of the design. Print the adult coloring design onto a sheet of white A4 paper. You can use ordinary printer paper, but if you are planning on using watercolor pencils, like in the example, you might need to use cardstock or paper with a medium weight.

  2. Use the watercolor pencils to color the mini adult coloring page. Use the Pilot extra fine white pen to add some highlights to the bird and the tree branch. Cut out once completed.

  3. Score the 8.2" x 6" light yellow marbled cardstock to create a card sized 6" x 4.1".

  4. With the fold at the left, center and glue the sugar paper to the front of the card.

  5. Center and glue the colored design to the front of the card.

I love that this card combines coloring pages with card making. Another idea would be to give the recipient the uncolored picture for them to color in!
