Tips/Ideas:

*Remember when layering paper to avoid using a glittery base. Paper glued on top of glittery paper doesn’t stick too well because of the glitter. I’m sure there are ways around this – but sometimes, it’s best to avoid a glittery base. However, if the glittery paper will be your top layer, have fun and bling it up!!

*On this card, if you don’t want your present to have any text on it, simply decorate it with stripes, polka dots, Christmas shapes, etc.

*Check at your local dollar store for bargains on Christmas ribbon, stickers, embellishments, etc.

*Merry Christmas – Jesus is the reason for the season!

DIY Mini Christmas Cards

It is nearing the end of the year, but there’s still plenty of time if you want to make your own Christmas cards this year. It would be very laborious to make large cards for everyone on your mailing list. Also, I have found it can be challenging to make a large card look complete. Not only does it take more time, but it takes more supplies. Why not make cute, little, mini Christmas cards?! They are unique and oh, so cute! I made mini cards one year, and they were a hit!

But, I learned two things when mailing mini cards…

1.) After placing mini card in a mini envelope, it is best to place that within a larger, regular size envelope. This way, it won’t cost you extra postage to mail the odd size, mini card.

2.) Refrain from using embellishments such as gemstones and items that are raised up off the card (3D)… the postmaster doesn’t like mysterious things such as these and can charge extra postage for such things. Plus, the gemstones or other plastic embellishments can get broken in the mail. It’s best to stick with flat, lightweight things such as paper, ribbon, stickers, etc. to embellish.

This blog entry would be very lengthy if I gave instructions on each card pictured; but I am simply sharing these cards I made to help inspire some ideas for you. If I was hand-delivering the card, I embellished away (since I didn’t have to worry about postage)! Please comment below if you would like more detailed instructions on a particular card. Happy card-making!!
