How to Make a Welcome Back Card

One of your best friends has been away on a gap year in South Africa, or went to live in Hong Kong for the last five years, and is finally coming back to his hometown. Since you did not see him for a very long time, there is no better way to welcome him than by giving him a "Welcome Back" card signed by all your common friends and family.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • A3 card stock paper
  • Colourful stickers
  • Red marker pen
  • Box of colour pens
  • A4 envelope

  1. 1

    Fold the A3 card stock paper, so that you now have an A4 formatted four-page Welcome Back card.

  2. 2

    Glue the colourful stickers anywhere on the front of the card. Write a big "Welcome Back!" and the name of your friend with the red marker pen.

  3. 3

    Write a greeting message to your friend with one of the colour pens, anywhere between the second and third page of the card. Tell him how much you missed him and how much you are happy to see him back in town. Sign your message.

  4. 4

    Ask all the friends and family you have in common to add their own messages and to sign the card as well, each one of them using a different colour pen.

  5. 5

    Close the card and place it inside the A4 envelope once you have collected everybody's messages.

  6. 6

    Offer the card to your friend at his "Welcome Back" party.
