Inspiration: My inspiration for this card actually came from the paper I used as the background. It's origami paper that's a dark blue with lots of little gold stars on it. I thought it looked like outer space.
How I Make Them: I trimmed a piece of the origami paper to fit the front of the card. I cut out circles in different sizes for the planets - at least 2 smaller and 1 larger. I cut the ring around the one planet out of silver reflective paper. I glued down the planets and ring after laying them out. I wrote "Happy Birthday" on one of the planets. On the inside, I wrote "May your birthday be out of this world!"
- I imagine when I'm out of my origimi paper I can either find similar scrapbooking paper or just use a darker cardstock and draw on gold/silver stars with gel pens or Sharpies.
- The planets and rings can be in any color.
- If I was a better artist I could even add a space ship or satellite.
