VIDEO: DIY Logan / Wolverine Inspired Birthday Card


Kim Dellow DIY Wolverine / Logan inspired birthday card

I've mentioned before that we are pretty keen on comic books and graphic novels in my household so today's project video is a total geek-out homage to the new Logan film coming out in the cinemas around the world this week. It's a DIY how-to for making a Logan / Wolverine inspired Birthday Card.

I totally wish I could claim to having come up with the idea but it was my amazing partner David who did, I just brought it to life. The one thing we are not short of in my house is comic books so it was easy for me to source some old ones to cut up. But if you aren't so lucky then try your local charity shop or second hand book shop, but do make sure it isn't a rare one before you go tearing it up!

Hope you enjoy the movie Bub. Both mine and the one in the cinema, which might be slightly longer and less papercraft-based than mine!

Have fun with this technique! I don't think it isn't just for Logan / Wolverine birthday cards either, it would make a fun Halloween card too wouldn't it?
