Inspiration Board : Office Birthday Cards

Posted by

We are big fans of the office birthday party (did you see Blake's post showing a few of our celebrations?). No party is complete without a handmade card signed by coworkers. We're lucky in that we have "a little" glitter and few craft tools around. However, if your office is not similarly stocked, a lot can be done with sticky notes, paper clips, staples, and the like. (Homemade hole-punched confetti? Love those office supplies!) Please send us pictures of your creative coworker cards!!
