I love sending handmade Christmas cards to friends and relatives during the holidays, but I don’t love making the exact same card a hundred times. So today I’m going to share with you five different and easy Christmas cards that all use the same basic supplies so you can create a stack of cards without duplicating the same thing over and over.
- Kraft Paper Cards and Envelopes
- Mini Laser Cut Wooden Christmas Shapes
- Red Baker’s Twine
- Letter Stickers
- Miscellaneous Scrap Paper
The first card is the easiest to make. String three wooden stars onto baker’s twine, then wrap the twine around the card a few times and tie with a bow. I wanted my twine to stay in one spot, so I cut tiny little grooves into the sides of the card so that the twine won’t slide around.
If you don’t have any scrap pieces of corrugated paper, you can find corrugated sheets here.
The next two cards were fun to make too. I layered small scraps of red and green paper underneath the wooden presents so that the color would pop through the spaces. Then I made a wreath using the holly berries and colored the wood using oil pastel chalk.
