A few years back, I posted an article highlighting 36 easy handmade Christmas cards. Little did we know that four years later, it would generate close to a quarter of a million views. The post's popularity told us that people are clamoring for easy and beautiful handmade Christmas card tutorials. It also told us that we needed to scrounge the internets for even MORE ideas. After doing just that, here's some for this holiday season.
Those first 36 ideas came from a place called Scrapbooks ETC. Here's 24 more projects from the same folks. They kick things up a notch using, among other things, photographs for a more personal touch. I particularly like this Polaroid-inspired card:
Katie shows us how she made this selection of super-easy Christmas cards using washi tape and gift wrapping scraps.
I love the inside of this one I spotted on DIY Chat Room. No instructions, I'm afraid, but the construction is so easy, we really don't need them. Applying the greetings to the center after it's folded is the way to go:
Twirling Betty uses the negative space between two Christmas trees to display bunting. Clever!
HGTV has some very cool printables and instructions to make these two cards:
Hobbycraft show us via YouTube how to make this deceptively simple origami Christmas tree card. For a tinier Christmas tree, check out this tutorial at instructables.
A master of pop-up, Robert Sabuda, has a couple of cards tutorials I hadn't seen before. This angel would be perfect way to send greetings of the season.
He also has instructions to make a Santa, a Snowflake and a Snowman too.
Of course, if you want something really, really easy, then this printable is the way to go. Just stick some card stock into your color printer and print away. (Make sure you read the message concerning Google Chrome. I use Google Chrome and chose to download it. It printed just fine.)
