Handmade Christmas Card Crafts

Being a Bostik blogger sees us getting stuck into some fab crafts, not that we need much of an excuse to make and do. This months theme is Christmas so we got cracking with some Christmas cards.

Handmade Christmas Card Crafts

What you will need:

Card

Double sided foam pads

Some strips of printed card/paper

Bostik Glu Dots

White paint

First I cut my trunk from the lid of a cardboard box, and then stuck it to my blank card with double sided foam pads. Then using my glu dots I stuck my strips of patterned card to the trunk, to form the tree. You can use any pattern really. I used some random designs and a couple with text on. Finally, I turned my paintbrush upside down and dipped it into some white paint giving it a lovely snowing effect.

Here are a couple more designs that we did. Pic Monkey is fab for creating pretty pieces for your cards. They have lots of nice winter/Christmas themed overlays to choose from.

    They are beautiful. I am particularly fond of the button baubles. I love buttons and use them in almost all my craft projects. Not that I do that many. We are having a crafty Christmas this year, it’s so much more fun! Have a great week #MMBC

    We made ones with buttons as baubles last year! So simple yet they looked very cool. My son strggles with fine motor skills but the Christmas tree ones look doable for him. A bit of wonkiness is fine on a tree!

    Gosh, you are good. Mind you, I always appreciate a hand-made card when I get one. So perhaps I should get my craft on too, I’m sure my 4 kids would love to help me with that.
    Love the button one …

    I really love these! We always make our own christmas cards, but never as good as this. I love the ones with buttons. In fact they’re all so cute! xx

    Hi Jayne, I am not a very crafty person, but Christmas was the time of year I used to enjoy creating things with the children (the shiny paper chain we made about ten years ago still has pride of place in our hall). I can no longer use MoonPig (Capital controls on Greek credit cards) and the cards here are pretty sad. It never occurred to me to have a go at making our own. Your cards look good and so much more interesting than the run of the mill shop bought… I’m not sure if they do kits here, but I’m going to have a look!

    xx
