Handmade Christmas Cards

This year I have decided to make my own Christmas Cards because I feel that the homemade touch always adds a little something special. Here's How.......

For 2 Cards you will need: 
  • 1x A4 sheet of cardboard 
  • 2x 30 cm lengths of ribbon 
  • 2x hand tied bows in a smaller ribbon 
  • Pencil
  • Scissors 
  • Craft knife (optional) 
  • Double sided tape 

How To:

  1. Using the Craft knife or scissors, cut the A4 sheet of cardboard in half to make the card.
  2. Zig-zag a 30 cm length of ribbon to form the Christmas tree design, while you are doing this use a pencil to mark a small cross at each turn of the ribbon.
  3. Cut and place a small piece of double sided tape on each cross you have marked
  4. Repeat the Zig-Zag design, this time pressing down at each turn to ensure the ribbon sticks to the cardboard.
  5. Secure the small bow at the top of the design with a small piece of double sided tape
If anyone else has any Christmas Card ideas, please feel free to share.
