Throughout multiple versions, Scooby Doo has remained one of the most popular animated characters. Whether it is in the classic cartoon series, updated cartoon series, or on the big screen in the live-action film Scooby Doo will always remain a part of popular culture and as a birthday party theme. Instead of purchasing the typical Scooby Doo birthday card, you can easily create your own from home.

Things you need
- Multi-coloured construction paper
Print or find a picture of Scooby Doo. The easiest thing to do is visit Scooby Doo's official website in order to get the best Scooby Doo image that you wish to do. Use that image as a template for the homemade birthday card (see Resources below).
Use the image of Scooby's head to draw a head shaped like his. Some of the key features are a long neck, large black nose and big grin.
Cut out the traced image and create another copy so that you have two copies of Scooby's head. One copy will be Scooby on the front of the card while the other will be the inside and back of the card.
Use the white paper to cut out two large white eyes for Scooby's head. You can glue little pieces of black paper for the pupils or simply colour in two black circles using a marker.
Cut out four to five black spots for Scooby's body. The spots should be all around the same size, but place differently all around the body section of Scooby.
Use red construction paper to create a tongue for Scooby. This is optional, but adds more of the goofiness that is featured on Scooby Doo.
Use the yellow construction paper to create a small collar and dog tag for Scooby. Use a red or blue maker to write "SD" on the dog tag.
Glue all of the pieces together and let the card dry for five minutes. Glue on the back piece just up near the head so that the card can flip open vertically and the message can be read.
Use colourful makers to fill in the birthday messages and signatures.
