Even if you think it is silly, or that it is no longer worn, the truth is that recovering that illusion by receiving them is worth it. But if you are not good at create personalized christmas cards, or you think you have no ideas to make them, you’ve come to the right place. Because below you will be able to enjoy some ideas that will help you surprise the other person in a very special way.
You can buy Christmas cards in multiple places, from physical places to online stores. But if you spend a little time at home, these are also going to be perfect, and even better than the bought ones because they not only represent a detail to remember that special person; but you have also spent time creating something from scratch thinking about who will receive it.
Therefore, today we have proposed give you some ideas so you can send your best wishes and, who knows, also good energies for those people who need a little push to see things in a positive way. Do you want to know what you can do? Well pay attention to these ideas.
To make this card, you will only need a pen or permanent marker, a little cardboard and cotton, the star element. You have to start by cutting out the card on the cardboard. We recommend that it be of a strong color so that the cotton stands out. For example, red, green, black, gold … Why? Well, because if you put it on a white card, the white on white is canceled and then you will not have the 3D effect that we want to give it.
Then you need take cotton and make three balls of different sizes: one large, one medium and one small. As you know, a snowman is made up of those balls. And it is what you are going to recreate.
Now, with the cardboard, you must cut out a carrot-shaped nose (orange), a scarf (which can be red, black …) and a top hat. You have it all? Well, it’s time to take the glue and glue the balls, one on top of the other.
Add the nose, the hat and the scarf and finish the details (for example the arms, the eyes, the buttons …) with the black marker that we mentioned before. And you will have the perfect Christmas card.
Buttons are always something to be found in houses. And of course, many times you don’t even know where they came from. So you hang out with a great variety. To reuse them, you might consider putting them to make personalized Christmas cards. How is it done? Well, very easy.
To get started, start by choosing the buttons you want to use. Once you have them, think about the following: How would they look better: like “Christmas balls”, like Christmas trees, like snowmen …? Well yes, all that and much more is what you can do with the buttons.
In fact, we leave you some images that will help you see what the buttons can do for you. The truth is that there is something for all tastes, since you can even make Christmas trees, candy canes, garlands with buttons, deer (Rudolph) …
