How to Make Your Own Christmas Cards

Posted by:
Get crafty and bring cheer this holiday season with our comprehensive guide how to make your own holiday cards. From family photo cards to creative D-I-Y cards that pop, we’ve got something for everyone.
Christmas photo cards are the gift that keeps on giving, one that friends and family are sure to remember. Whether you have a family of four or a family with four paws, capturing and sharing a moment of togetherness is a great way to bring joy to loved ones both near and far. Simply take your favorite photo and glue it to the inside of the card. Using scissors or a giant paper punch in your favorite shape, cut a hole in the front of the card to display the photo inside. Add a decorative border, ink stamps, and some written holiday wishes, and voila! Your very own D-I-Y family photo card!

Take any one of our many holidays cards or invitations to the next level with glitter.

Another great way to get your D-I-Y craft on is to share the creative fun with the kids! Using a blank card, some brown ink, and your fingertips, stamp the card cover with a few fingerprints and then let dry. Your child can use one or all fingers, or you can ask each family member to contribute one thumbprint each. Once smudge-proof, glue on googly eyes, a small red pom nose, and draw in some antlers and a smile. The kids will love working with their hands, and you’ll enjoy the memories for years to come!
What about some uber creative office holiday party invitations? Add a fun and hilarious personal touch by gluing an oversized picture of your boss’s head on a reindeer body! A definite crowd pleaser among the corporate workforce. Just be sure to get the A-OK from the ‘head honcho’ first.
