We love all getting crafty for the kids and that we love sending friends and family DIY Christmas Cards annually. I feel it’s nice to urge them to form their own cards – that way it’s personal and thoughtful, but also, they don’t get tempted to offer cards to everyone “just because”.
Hopefully, these Christmas card ideas will set you up for subsequent few weeks! These are a neighbourhood of our extensive list of card making ideas for teenagers.
Gingerbread Men Cards
You may, like us, still need a Christmas card or two. you’ll like our little Gingerbread Men Cards. We made some Gingerbread Garlands like this (like a paper man chain), some cards (which you see here) and a few elementary “individual” men (in white) that the youngsters coloured in and decorated. Such an easy activity and yet they couldn’t get enough.
You may also love to read:
- A gingerbread kitchen utensil (if you don’t have one, I made a touch cookie template for you to print),
- lightweight card (so your cards can stand up),
- pens and “things to embellish your card with”.
- We had stick-on buttons, but gems would look nice. Otherwise, you could cut out “pretend” Smarties out of felt or funky foam. Or colour your men in.
How To Make It :
- Fold your card in half.
- Use your kitchen utensil (or the template) as a stencil. Confirm the hand and therefore, the foot touch the crease of the cardboard. Trace your cookie.
- Cut him out. You ought to now have two gingerbread men, attached at the hands and feet that get up by themselves.
- Paint brown (if you would like, we did!).
- Once dry, decorate to your heart’s content. Kids used eye stickers and button stickers, but really, anything goes! you’ll want to decorate your gingerbread men up – maybe make a Santa or a gingerbread snowman. Your call!
Admire. Then send to a well-deserving friend or family member!
I do hope you enjoyed my first tutorial to form custom Christmas cards! Having fun with kids creating something together are great to make a core happy memory with them.
If you don’t want to make Homemade Christmas Cards because you’ve been too busy before Christmas, you’ll design on your computer alongside your kids and print it. It more convenient and neater also you’ll request your ideas, and someone will create your custom design and print it as your request.
