CHRISTMAS CARD IDEAS
Use Scraps of Paper and Trim


Christmas card ideas - some can come from looking at what materials you already have. Look in your ribbon box and use up the remnants.

This christmas card idea is simple. I've used scraps of black and white pattern paper and solid black paper. Black and white pattern paper is versatile and can be coordinated with lots of colors. I pulled out a remnant piece of red ribbon and added glitter to a snowflake punch. I finished it off with a personalized message.

Card Making Materials:

- 2" w x 4 1/2" h pattern paper

- 3 5/8" w x 2 1/2" h black paper

- 3/8" w red sparkly ribbon cut 3 5/8" long

- 3 5/8" w x 2" h personalized message

- red snowflake

- adhesive jem

- double sided tape

- adhesive dots or hot glue gun

- 5 1/2" x 4" blank white card

Instructions:

Print out your personalized message. You can handprint it or use a stamp or rub on stickers. I like to use cardstock paper so that it looks more crisp white.

Align the personalized message flush along the bottom and right sides of card and tape.

Align the black paper flush along the edge of the personalized message and right side of card and tape. Do not tape the top portion yet since it will need to be folded over the back.

Fold over top flap towards the back of card and tape or hot glue gun it down.

Align the pattern paper flush along the bottom and left edge of card and tape. Do not tape the top portion yet since it will need to be folded over the back.

Fold over top flap towards the back of card and tape or hot glue gun it down.

Center the red sparkly ribbon over the black and pattern paper and adhere. I like to use a hot glue gun so the ribbon is secure.

Punch out a snowflake from red paper using a punch. I used Martha Stewart brand. I added red glitter to my snowflake to match the sparkly red ribbon but the glitter is optional. Adhere snowflake using small adhesive dots or hot glue gun.
