Christmas is on its way! We’re getting ready for the special day. Decorating, baking, and more; the Christmas mat is at the front door. Our family and friends, we’re ready to greet. They come to share a Christmas treat. But what about our loved ones far away? They won’t be here to laugh and play. How do we show them that we care? We’ll give them a token of love to share!
A tradition started a couple years back. My daughters make handmade Christmas cards in a stack. There easy, you’ll see, and fun to do. There’s no reason your children can’t make up a few.
Line up your supplies all in a row! Card materials are listed below. There are directions included to guide you through, but you can make them any way you want to.
Handmade Christmas Ornament Cards
You’ll need cardstock, scrapbook paper, scissors and glue; cardboard, coloring supplies, sequins or glitter too. There’s just one more thing; don’t forget! Print off this ornament template and you’re all set!
Cut those ornaments out to start. Then decorate until they look smart. Audrey used strips of colored paper and tin, glued sequins on, then held it up with a grin.
Next it was Emma’s turn to decorate, she thought blue and green would look great!
Maybe some pink would make it complete. So she drew some designs and made it look sweet!
The final step was to make the card pop. So, we added some cardboard and glued the ornament on top.
They’re made from the heart; people will know it’s true. So they’ll look great, no matter what your children do.
Start a new tradition this year, and spread a little Christmas cheer. With a handmade card that is so easy to make, you can’t go wrong for goodness sake!
