Supplies to make DIY Christmas Cards

DIY Christmas Cards

Supplies

  • Cards – I found packs of cards and envelopes at Hobby Lobby in lots of different colors
  • Envelopes
  • Washi Tape
  • Stickers – these are optional, but the Santa faces are really fun (found these at Hobby Lobby)
  • Ribbon for the ornaments
  • Wrapping Paper or Scrapbook Paper
  • Hole Punch – 2 inch works great, but any size will work. You can also cut the circles out by hand, but the hole punch is super easy. Then you have it for all the fun Cupcake Toppers too!
  • Adhesive – I like Tape Runner because it’s super easy to use and it’s messy. It’s great for little hands too!
  • Scissors
  • Fine Tip Markers – Tombow are my favorite for crafting
