What you need:

  • An envelope
  • Calendars, fashion magazines etc – big enough to fit the net of the envelope
  • Glue + scissors
  • Black marker
  • Card stock for the notecards

Merry Christmas with DIY cards!

Ok, so these photos aren’t from this Christmas, but from 2007. I can’t believe that these photos are from so long ago! They seem like 2009… but shocker – 2007.

I took some scraps from wrapping paper and crackers…

And created Christmas cards which I used the following year!

Basically I found some white cardboard (of the right size) and arranged the scraps in a ‘creative’ way. Then I went about gluing and taping (the larger items) onto the cover.

This year (2010) I’ll be working on DIY cards with the bf, SM. So we’ll see what we come up with. All I can say at this point is that it involves… lino!

  • Silver or gold pen – to show up against the dark maroon and green colour.
  • Black ink pen – to outline the drawing
  • Colour pencils
