ABC card

ABCcard2
Thank you Grace for letting me spend the week here! For my last post I
decided to make an ABC birthday card with a PDF you can download and
make yourself.

We have a birthday tradition in our family we’ve been doing since we
were kids. We go around the dinner table and each person takes a letter
of the alphabet, and we say something nice about the birthday girl/boy.
A is for Artistic! B is for the Beautiful! We go around and around the
table until we get to Z (which can be a difficult letter, you have to
get creative). You can mention a favorite memory, or something that
reminds you of that person, but it has to involve your letter.

My family is now scattered across the country. So I thought this ABC
card might be a nice way to keep our tradition going, even when we’re
apart for birthdays. Coming up with 26 things on your own can be tough,
so I only recommend making this card for people you know quite well!

To get started: Download the PDF which includes
all 26 letters. For each card you’ll need seven sheets of cardstock.
Print your cards on a color printer. Cut each page into 4 cards by
following the trim marks. Write one special trait or memory for each
letter. Wrap with ribbon and mail to the birthday boy/girl in a sturdy
envelope. It’s almost as good as being there in person.
