  8. Use a 1/4" corner rounder to cut the four corners of the birthday card. If you don't have a corner rounder, just use a pair of sharp scissors to slightly round the corners
  9. Use a toothpick to embellish the birthday greeting card by applying glitter glue to the dots to make the card sparkle for the birthday boy. Don't over-embellish! Just apply on a few dots will do.
