Printable greeting cards are the best thing to give out on any occasion. These little cards might just be pieces of cardboard, but the message could mean a lot. These days, you can get any card design on the internet. The internet has also made it much simpler to make them since there are so many sites that offer card templates and designs for absolutely any occasion. There are themes for Christmas, New Year's Day, postcards, get-well soon cards, weddings and more. Now, you don't have to make do with ready-made cards that are so generic and boring that they seem so lifeless. You can create your own cards and personalize them however you like.

DIY Craft Essential #1: Washi tape

You'd be surprised at how many things you can do, and how many tutorials out there are obsessed, with washi tape. The versatile paper tape with adorable designs makes great wall decor, paper crafts or can even spruce up your furniture.

DIY Craft Essential #2: Needle nose pliers

This tiny tool is great for small projects. "This is not only your go­-to tool for opening and closing jump rings, bending wire, and securing crimp beads and ribbon ends, but pliers are also great for cutting through jewelry chain and wire," said Morin.

Make greeting card by going online. You don't have to go to a craft store and buy the many different materials that are needed to make your own customized greeting card. Sites that offer card designing and printing services are available online. These sites have all the things you need to make a beautiful card from scratch. You don't have to cut up, draw, and write anything anymore. You can edit everything on the computer. This also makes the cards look more professional and can even pass off as something that was made by an expert. There are hundreds of designs for you to choose from. All of which can be used for any card.

DIY Craft Essential #3: X-acto knife

If you love stationary crafts, jewelry crafts or any delicate work -- you'll need a proper cutting tool. Not all scissors can do the job. "Remember first using scissors and cutting along the dotted lines in grade school?" Morin asked. "Hopefully, you’re attempting more challenging crafts as an adults."

DIY Craft Essential #4: Spray paint

Acrylic paints are also great for any DIY starter kit. However, if you're looking for a perfect, seamless finish on your furniture, art and home decor -- make some space to spray. It doesn't hurt to keep some cans in your favorite colors (as long as you store them properly).

The reason why people love these customize greeting cards is that they can make it look like anything they want. The designs offered online are more unique and can be used in a wide variety of cards. If you just want to make a few cards, you have the choice of printing them out yourself. If you want the cards to be printed in bulk, some sites offer printing services where you pay a small fee per card. It actually takes them a shorter time to send the cards to your location compared to ordering cards at specialty printing shops.

Unlike hand-made cards with photos, photo greeting cards look much better if they are printed out with the designs. It's also less hassle to add designs to them since you don't have to paste them on the photos. All you need to make these types of greeting cards is just photo paper and you can print out photos and use them on your next greeting cards.

DIY Craft Essential #5: Painter's tape

Painter's tape is "perfect for for attempting the c​olor block trend," said Morin. Plus, you'll need something to keep your projects neat and tidy, no matter what type of paints you use.

DIY Craft Essential #6: Hot glue gun

There are some tools that are too functional not to have. "This is one DIY workhorse tool you shouldn't do without," said Morin. Hot melt glue works on a variety of materials.
