Quick Crafty Christmas Cards

By: Karisa Tell for FaveCrafts
Make your own Christmas cards with help from the kids. Cut out a variety of circles using a craft punch and lay them out for kids. Let them create their own wreaths on the outside – the more unique and colorful, the better!

Materials: 

 Pre-cut cardstock
 Paper
 Circle punch
 Glue dots
 3-D adhesives

Instructions:

1.) The actual cards were made out of a piece of pre-cut cardstock, which I had left over from some invitations I made last spring. I just folded them in half. (See, I told you this was simple!)

2.) Then I looked through my paper scraps and selected several different types of green paper. I ended up with 9 different varieties.

3.) I used my circle punch and punched circles from each type of paper, 11 per card.

4.) When I was done cutting, I arranged the circles into a wreath shape on each card and stuck them down with mini glue dots.
5.) Next I grabbed some mini Christmas bows from my stash, originally from the dollar store about a decade ago–it pays to hoard sometimes! I attached these to the wreaths with a 3-D adhesive square.

6.) For the inside, I cut a simple strip of red paper and adhered it with more glue dots, and then I punched 5 circles from some green cardstock with a basic hole punch. I stuck these circles down with more 3-D adhesives.

7.) I wrote a little message inside after the pictures were taken. And then, I was done!
