Christmas is right around the corner and we’re officially at the stage where we make and post our Christmas cards! My son and I wanted to share this little design with you because it’s so simple but looks adorable too. We’ve been making these since he was tiny, I used to help him with the tricky bits but now he’s all grown up he barely even asks for my help. It’s amazing how fast he is growing and gaining independence. Sometimes I wish time would slow down a little but I’m so super proud of him! His little Christmas tree card designs really are adorable and we can’t wait to share them with loved ones.
Here’s what we used
Decorations (we used sequins and buttons!)
How to make our super simple Christmas tree cards.
To make our cards we did our design on white paper and then mounted it on to card but drawing straight on card looks fab too! Take a green marker and starting at the center near the top of your card draw a gradually snaking line downwards, getting wider as you near the bottom.
Cut out a star shape and glue it in place at the top of your tree line.
Add some colourful decorations all along the tree line. Then take a marker and add a little stump at the bottom of the tree.
We finished off by mounting our design onto some red card. Dont they look adorable? So simple too!
A couple of weeks back i bought a Giant class bag of buttons and haven’t got round to making any button crafts since. So today i thought i’d best bust them open and try and get something made with them. Not in the least to stop my other half saying i was buying stuff and not using it! It’s been a busy day so i decided it would have to be something quick and simple. Sometimes the cutest crafts are the simplest ones and sometimes all we want is a last minute make to gift. This cute little button Easter chick card is so quick and easy to make but it still looks adorable!
you will need:
Buttons (Brown and yellow)
Orange and black pens
Use larger buttons to make the body of your chicks and slightly smaller ones for the head. Make a large brown chicken on the left hand side to be the mother hen, then add two or three smaller ones to the right of her as if they were following behind.
Use your orange marker to add triangular beaks to each chicken. Then, using the same orange marker give each chick two little legs.
Glue a googly eye on to the head button of all the chickens and leave to dry. Once your card is completely dry, use your black marker to add your own special message to the top of the cards. your Easter card is finished! aren’t those little chickens just the cutest!
