Picture of Futurama Meme Gift Card
Futurama-Shut-Up-and-Take-My-Money-Birtheday-Card - Copy.jpg
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

Picture of 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.

Thank you very much! I made that finally!

That is a very creative design!

But I use the normal paper instead of the cardstock paper.

This is great, but what does the front of the card look like?
LegoBrickMaster7 (author)  Kiteman3 years ago
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.
