Making cards isn’t that hard, doesn’t take too long, and is such a great and personal way to wish someone a ‘Merry Christmas!’
Here are a few examples of quick and easy Christmas cards.
Embroidery Thread Christmas Tree
Use a pencil and ruler to draw on the outline of the tree, and mark on the points for the thread. Using a needle, make holes through the marked points.
Once you’ve done this, just sew the embroidery thread through the holes. You can add on whatever you like to the design. I used some spare stars which I had, but you can use anything to create a bauble effect.
You can create a more interesting design by incorporating other materials, for example alternating between wool and thread, as you can see below.
You don’t need to stick a star on the top, if you want to be minimalistic you can just stick with the tree on its own.
So this one is really simple.. Use any leftover ribbon which compliments your card colour, and you can get hold of a whole array of card toppers from Hobbycraft. Use double sided tape to stick down the ribbon, strong glue for the reindeer, and if you have any extra bits you can just stick them on too! Time to rummage in the craft box!
You can either buy a pack of cards with pre-cut windows, or cut them yourself if you’ve got a good stanley knife! Then just cut embroidery thread to the length of the window, thread on the sequins, and use sellotape to fix it in place.
