DIY Christmas Cards

Hi all!

Tis the season for thoughtfulness, joy and cheer! It’s that time of year again where our inner craftiness comes out in full force! From homemade ornaments, wreaths and my favourite, Christmas cards.

Christmas cards are one of those things that are becoming nostalgic. I don’t know about you guys but receiving cards during the holiday season makes me cheery and warm.

If you’ve put off buying cards, or just want something more personal and creative, count on these crafty ideas!


All the supplies I used where either items I had lying around at home or purchased from the dollar store.

  • cardstock & envelopes
  • coloured paper
  • hole punch
  • alphabet (stamps)
  • Christmas greeting stamps
  • mini snowflakes
  • mini clothes-pegs
  • string
  • scraps of wrapping paper
  • black marker
  • shape punchers (star & heart)
  • pinecone sticker
  • washi tape


All six of these cards were easy and simple to make. I made them all from inspiration pictures found on good ole’ Pintrest! All of them are simple enough to make without instructions too!
