- Cardstock paper
- Craft glue
- Mini gems
- Cookie cutters
- Crayons, markers, or paint optional
Use cardstock paper to make fun and festive holiday
cards. Fold a piece of cardstock paper and trace desired
cookie cutter on paper to make your design. Some examples
are snowmen, bells, stars, wreaths, Christmas trees,
or bows. Use glue and a little giltter to accent the
design. Add confetti, gems, or ribbon if desired.
Another idea if you are artistic is to draw your own
designs. If this is being used as a kid craft you can
use paints, markers, or crayons and have children decorate
the cards with their favorite holiday drawings.
A final example would be to use the cookie cutters
and trace the shape onto the cardstock paper. Cut out
the center and have your child put her favorite photos
on the inside of the card and tape or glue the photo
in place to the inside of the card.
