If you’ve ever forgotten someone’s birthday or special occasion – don’t worry, it happens to the best of us.

Whether you’re crafty or not-so-crafty, this hidden message greeting card tutorial is as easy as you want it to be, for those moments that you end up with a little less time than you prefer. Pick up a pack of blank cards from your local craft supply store, and gather anyΒ supplies you have around you, and you’re ready to get started!


  • Blank greeting card with envelope
  • Mini envelope
  • Double-sided tape
  • Washi tape
  • Scissors
  • Pen
  • Paint & brushes (optional)

Step 1:
Pair a small decorative envelope with your blank greeting card. Apply double-sided tape on the front side of the envelope.

Step 2:
Peel the tape to reveal the adhesive side, and align the envelope in the center of the envelope. Place a gift card, message card, and/or little note inside. Seal with a piece of washi tape or sticker.

Step 3:
Add a personal message to the card, seal it with some love, and you’re done!
