Christmas Cards DIY

So….. it’s December!! I got (almost) all my Christmas presents sorted last week. I only need to finish some bits and bobs and I’ll be so ready for the merry season.

This year I wanted to make my own Christmas cards, as I normally send some to my family and friends in Spain. I always need to send them early as last year I didn’t and they arrived on New Year’s Eve – lol. Well… this is very likely to happen this year too as I haven’t send them yet *rolled eyes*.

Let’s go straight to the point, here you have the step by step guide to make your own Christmas cards:

Materials

  • Blank cards and envelopes
  • Christmas stencils
  • Silver and gold sprays
  • Silver and gold bows or any other type of decoration
  • Glue dots (these are my new thing and I’m using them in EVERYTHING!)
  • A bit of blue tack

You can get all the materials online, although I got mine from the pound store.

How to make your own Christmas cards

  1. Prepare your workspace as the spray can get a bit messy. I put an old bed sheet where I was going to work as I did it inside (it was raining and so cold!) but if you could do it outdoors I would recommend it.
  2. Think about the designs you want to make. I went for Christmas trees and snowflakes, they are so cute <3
  3. Place the Christmas stencil on the blank card and use the blue tack so the stencil doesn’t move.
  4. Spray, spray and spray till is done. Don’t spray too much because if the card gets wet is not going to look as nice. Repeat on all the cards.Christmas-Cards-Tutorial
  5. Wait and let them dry – go and make a cuppa!
  6. Once they are dry, put the bows on the corners of the cards using the glue dots. As you can see on the pics I put a silver bow on gold cards and vice versa.
  7. The cards are ready!!
