Make a note: These DIY cards are sure to impress your friends and family.
Nothing brings joy to the world (or your mailing list) like a handmade holiday card. Make spirits a little brighter this year with one of these easy-to-create personalized designs from the editors of HGTV Magazine.
- Cut strips of different-color vellum in varying widths and lengths to mimic gift boxes, lids and a ribbon. Trim some of the strips at an angle so they look less uniform.
- Use a glue stick to glue the vellum boxes to the card, spacing them a few centimeters apart, then glue the lids on top so they slightly overlap the boxes. Glue the “ribbon” vertically over the stack and add a few smaller strips at the top for a bow.
- Draw three triangles of varying heights on card stock, then cut them out.
- Apply strips of washi tape in shades of green, blue and yellow diagonally onto the triangles and trim any excess.
- Glue the triangles to the card with a glue stick so they overlap, with the medium-size triangle in the middle.
- Use a small dab of craft or hot glue to attach a sequin to the tip of each triangle.
- Use a 5/8-inch circle punch to cut circles out of green paint chips from a hardware store (or several shades of green card stock).
- Glue the paint chips to the card in a circle with a glue stick, overlapping them as you go.
- Tie a thin piece of green ribbon into a bow and hot-glue it to the top of the wreath.
