Bright and Colorful Holiday Card

Materials Needed:

  • 12" x 12" textured pink card stock
  • scissors
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • wide-tip black marker
  • assorted ribbon
  • metallic trim
  • hot pink patterned fabric

Prepare Card and Ribbon

Cut 12" x 12" sheet of card stock in half, then fold 12" x 6" sheet in half to form card. Cut assorted ribbon, trims and fabric into 6-inch-long segments.

Fringe Ribbon

On wider ribbon and fabric, cut slits approximately every 1/4 inch to create fringe.

Attach Ribbon and Write Message

Starting from the top of card, attach ribbon to card front with hot glue (Image 1). Continue layering ribbon, alternating textures and colors, until entire front of card is covered. Tip: To ensure proper spacing and complementary pattern placement, lay ribbon segments down first, then glue. Using a permanent marker, write "Feliz Navidad" on inside of card to wish recipients a festive holiday season (Image 2).
