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.

Making these get well greeting cards is easy. You can use the internet and search for sites that offer card designing services. It's also more convenient since you don't have to leave home, you can just log into the net.

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).

Humor is the best thing to add in get well greeting cards. You can choose a joke or even use an inside joke that you and the person you're giving the card to know. You can also add a funny picture like a cartoon, comic strip or just a simple funny photo or a scenario that the person will laugh or smile at. Another way to make the person smile is to use a design or theme that they love. If they like the outdoors, you use a nature or outdoor theme on the card. If they're into cartoons, use their favorite cartoon as a design.
