Christmas Card Ideas

MATERIALS

  • Watercolor paper and other heavy paper (cut into quarters)
  • Watercolor paint
  • Crayons
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Glue
  • Fun card-making materials: glitter tape, sequins, and glittery embroidery thread

* We used the Smarts and Crafts Sparkle Stash Craft Kit by Kid Made Modern which is no longer in store, but any of their arts and crafts kit will be fun ! You can besides use any of your favorite 3D craft supplies .
note : For these cards, we like to tape down all of the edges with mask or washi magnetic tape. This keeps the card stable as we work on it, and creates a nice, crisp border for your artwork .

We’ve made a lot of Christmas cards using these techniques! Some of them are made directly onto folded over cardstock ( basically a blank menu ) and some of the mini artworks get glued to blank cards .

To make the note-writing part easier and more fun for kids, you can also have each child write one note, then photocopy it to insert into all of their cards.
