You’ll need to cut out banana shapes from yellow cardboard and make black dots on both ends of each banana. Then, glue the bananas to the card- the message you write in the center is the main point.
Polka Dot and Glitter Card
If your giftee loves patterned designs, you should make this one because they simply can’t resist polka dots. Although it looks like much stress, this card isn’t as difficult to make as it seems.

Simply dip a Q-tip in watercolor paint (preferably black) to create the polka dot design all over the card. Then, cut out a heart from glitter paper and glue it to the center of the card for a shiny touch.
