Yes, you read that right. Christmas cards in 5 minutes each. Doesn’t that sound great? Well, add some more time for the drying up process. 🙂
We just spent the weekend making a general mess in my daughter’s room under the pretext of making last-minute cards for her school class. Oh what fun it was!
Here they are in case you too have to make some quickly.
I) Using dough or clay
What you will need: Play dough or clay, Card paper for the card, Sequins or stars, cutter, glue and color pens.
(1) Flatten the clay,
(2) Cut out triangles in different sizes,
(3) Stick them on the card, Add the stars on top of your trees and draw tree trunks and some greens.
Here’s another version below along with the above card. We added strips of clay to form a tree and some punched out snowflakes.
There was one more and it was the most beautiful one made by Aruja. She had decorated it with sequins. Unfortunately, I don’t have a photo of it. 🙁
II) Wreath cards using paper doily
What you will need: Colored paper doily, card paper, red bow, glue and sticker.
Steps: Just cut the dolly in the center and paste a bow. 🙂 Yes, that simple. Huh!
III) Wreath cards using circles
What you will need: Paper circles, one big circular object, card paper, glue and a red bow.
(1) Use a cello tape or any other circular object.
(2) Draw a circle using a pencil very lightly.
(3) Glue on the paper circles along the border of this circle.
(4) Add a bow and a sticker.
IV) Best from waste
What you will need: Printed paper, card paper, Magazines or adverts, scissors, glue, glitter glue.
(1) If you have any Christmas stickers then the paper which is inside these stickers generally has a printed card like the one shown in the photo below. Draw a circle on some of the relevant images and cut these out.
(2) Search magazines or advertisements for the words “Merry Christmas or Season’s greetings”. Cut them out carefully.
(3) Paste the circles on your card. Give a glitter glue border. Use the cut out words from the advert and glue them in. Add glitter snowflakes.
So, Hope you have enjoyed these quick cards. There are some more to share. We will do that in our next post.
Promise, we won’t keep you waiting much longer.
Till then… happy crafting!
Love from me,
