Futurama Meme Gift Card

My good friend is graduating, so I decided to make a card for him which combines his love of Futurama and internet memes.

I got the idea for this after I stumbled upon a similar "happy birthday" card someone made for their friend, and I thought it was a funny way to give someone cash, rather than just buying a store bought card. I quickly drafted up a more formal version of the card in Adobe Illustrator, and then experimented around making the arm holding money a popout. I usually get things right the first time, and this was no exception.

Step 1: Materials & Printing

There are a few materials, and things, you'll need to have access to:
  • Ruler
  • X-Acto Knife
  • Scissors
  • Cutting Mat
  • Double Sided Tape
  • Printer
  • Cardstock Paper
Attached as PDFs to this step are two different versions of the card I designed. One is "happy birthday!", and the other is "congratulations!".

Choose the appropriate one to download.

I took mine to Staples to get printed, and just about anywhere you can expect it to be about $1.00 per page. There are three pages, so that isn't too bad, but if you want to save some money you could print double sided.

this is nice :)

This is great, but what does the front of the card look like?

Thanks for the oversight.

It's actually in a few of the other steps pictures, but it was a good idea to add that to the introduction.

Hopefully that clears things up.
whatever you want i would be guessing. but i agree with kiteman. hopefully i can make this in time for a mates party which is soon

I thought, "This would be perfect for our mutual friend who's graduating" then I read the description. Not sure what I'm getting him yet.
