How To Make Last Minute DIY Christmas Cards In 3 Easy Steps

December has flown by and Christmas is seriously around the corner. It’s practically knocking on the front door.

If you’re like me and lost track of the days staying busy with holiday parties and shopping, then you may have forgotten a crucial part of gift giving: the card.

I think it’s especially important to give a  personal card around the holidays, but this year I’m super tight on time. As such, I’ve come up with the following 3 step card ideas that are simple yet still sprinkled with love.

 

Materials for all 5 card variations:

  1. Pre-folded 5×7’’ cards in either Ivory and Midnight Blue
  2. Textured wallpaper or construction paper for trees/presents
  3. Scissors
  4. Elmer’s glue
  5. Paint brush (to accurately place the glue)
  6. Glitter paillettes
  7. Glitter glue
  8. Glitter sparkle stars
  9. Embossing heat tool to make sure the glitter stays in place
