A few weeks ago it was my friend's daughter's birthday, she was going to be 2 years old. Even though children can't read and don't even care about birthday cards, I couldn't give her a present without a card, right?
So in this case I had 2 options: writing happy birthday on a simple piece of paper, or making something cute that children (hopefully) like.
I decided to consider the second option and this is the card I made!
It's a tiny box with a little birthday cake inside and her name on the cover. All of them are paper quilled.

This would be a nice idea for Valentine's Day too...instead of the cake, you could put a quilled heart inside the box! 
I hope you like it :)
