Christmas Cards DIY



I fancied making some more personalised Christmas cards this year for my friends and this design is so easy. All you need is some nice quality paper, mini colourful pegs, a selection of gold paper, ribbon and some glue. There's not long left till Christmas, so maybe you could create Happy New Year cards? Or use this style for Birthday cards too...

I cut out the little square of fancy quality paper on which I stuck Christmassy designs. The mini pegs are stuck on with a cut-down sticky foam pad (double sided tape) and I attached a little piece of ribbon to each peg, the kind you can find in the shoulders of your clothes! Just cut them off carefully (they're annoying anyway) and re-use them!
The pegs hold the square of card with your design (or personalised message/photograph) and I think its a sweet way of making something that looks fairly professional. I gave these to my four best friends this year as something a bit different than a shop bought card.

  8. Your cards are simply beautiful! I would love to get one, if I could. Anyway, it doesn’t really have to be expensive sending your regards to someone special and important in your life. The effort and creative antics that were put into these cards will be well-appreciated. Thanks for sharing!
