I have been very bad over the years with Christmas cards. I generally give to the people I know I will see and do make sure the grandparents all get.
I do try to make as many of the cards and tags as I can because they its cheaper, more personal and a great craft project.
This year I am super organised and used my 50 free prints from QPhoto to print a family photo that I am using as our Christmas card. Cool hey?
I have found some really easy DIY Christmas cards on Pinterest though that you can make with stuff lying around your house, and if you are feeling extra patient you can even get the kids to help.
I sent this to Marcia because I think it is so cute and so easy to make, I am pretty sure you can even buy heart cut outs if you don’t have a stamp.
These are nice to do for grandparents or even teachers. Let the kids have some fun and then you can draw the reindeers.
This is super super easy, all you need is blank cards and some glitter glue and little stars. You can get Merry Christmas stamps at most stationery/craft shops or even a sticker will do (Typo had last years stock on sale recently – I picked up books of stickers for R20)
This is almost as easy as the one above and a nice one for kids to do. You can use newspaper or anything that you have actually.
I am definitely going to try these, we have hundreds of buttons left over from Emma’s Cute as a Button Party.
All of these ideas and more are on my Christmas Pinterest board!
Do you do Christmas cards? Do you make them? Buy them?
