Take a look at our christmas card idea fo kids. Turn your Christmas cards into a bit of festive decor.
Why not mix it up a bit at Christmas and make Christmas card bunting for your family. It will be the prettiest card on the mantlepiece! I made one for my niece who is 2 who probably still doesn’t understand the concept of Christmas cards! This idea’s great for kids.
Cut out the letters of their name from coloured card, cover it with stickers then make little holes and thread some festive sparkly string. You could write a little message on the back for them to read in years to come! This Christmas card idea could even become a yearly Christmas decoration to put out next year!
The time had come to get up to some crafty mischief again. My bank of homemade cards was running extremely low so instead of panicking about this major crisis, I came up with a genius solution to make some more!
I have a few people to thank and send some ‘thinking of you’ cards to via the British postal service… It always means more when a message arrives on a doormat rather than through a vibration on your mobile.
So I downloaded some thank you gift tags from the liagriffith.com blog, (I have previously mentioned her, she’s an ultimate legend) and cut them out.
These sort of tags are usually tied to a present, so I thought I’d change things up a bit and hang them inside the card, so when the reader opens it, they’d get the shock of their life… Not really!
So I used some of my favourite coloured parcel string to tie them around and tied a knot to hold them in place. I made sure the knot was on the front of the card and then covered it with a crafty embellishment!
You may have seen from my previous posts, I’m a sucker for homemade cards. I saw this idea and thought I gotta try this one…
I managed to create my own mini envelope template out of paper. To do this, I took a normal sized envelope, opened it up to see the shape I would need and drew my own, on a much smaller scale.
I then drew around it to make 6 mini envelopes out of cream coloured card.
I folded the mini envelopes and stuck them with Prit Stick to the front of pretty patterned card.
I used stickers at the top to say 6 reasons why I love you. And filled each envelope with a mini piece of card with a message on. Super cute!
