How to make a romantic birthday card for your boyfriend
Homemade birthday cards are a great way to show someone that you care. (postcard with red car image by Alexey Klementiev from

One fulfilling and fun way in which to show a boyfriend that he is cared for during his birthday is by making him a personalised and homemade romantic birthday card. Romantic birthday cards show an individual that they are thought about yet do not cost a lot of money and only require a bit of time and some energy. One romantic example is to make a collage card which depicts some of his most favourite things, whether it is football or world travel.

  1. 1

    Search for suitable images for your collage. For example, if your boyfriend is a travelling buff, look for pictures of his travelling excursions, or look in a magazine such as National Geographic for images of places he dreams of visiting, whether the Himalayas, Argentina, Iceland or Russia. Travelling websites can also be suitable for seeking images.

  2. 2

    Select the appropriate pictures and either print them out or cut them out. Then arrange all of the chosen images in a way that fits your boyfriend's personality the most.

  3. 3

    Use watercolour paints to add additional effects around the collage pictures. Paint the watercolours to add some light colouring surrounding the collage pictures, or paint on specific items. For example, for an earthy "golfing" theme, paint green grass to emulate the scenic and rolling fairways. Or for a travelling motif, paint a blue sky and clouds or an aeroplane flying through the sky.

  4. 4

    Consider small details to produce additional flair and pizazz. For example, to give the card a more "rustic" appeal, tear off sections of the card stock. If the card is going for, perhaps, a more "romantic" ambience, add some elements such as lace or perhaps glue on some dried roses. Be creative and think of what matches both your personality and your boyfriend's.

  5. 5

    Place the pictures of the collage over either the card stock or some decorative paper. Fold the card stock. Then glue some decorative paper to the front of the card in a preferred layout. Then glue the collage images down onto the card securely.

Tips and warnings

  • Do not worry about painting perfectly for the watercolours. With a romantic card like this, it's the thought that counts, and the more homemade it is, often the more special it can feel.
