5 Simple handmade Christmas Cards 

5 Simple handmade Christmas Cards 

Christmas is expensive, it’s a fact. Every year I try and find ways to cut corners and save some pennies so I’m not still paying for it by June. I buy wrapping paper in the sales and pack it away with the decorations, have costing negotiations with my family on how much we’ll spend and try to buy a few practical presents for the boys. I gave up buying Christmas cards for family many years ago, preferring to send them something which I or my children have made, it’s a much more personal way of sending Christmas love and cheer to loved ones.

These simple handmade Christmas cards are super effective yet easy to make from everyday things which lurk in many homes and should only cost a few pounds make. 5 simple christmas cards, which anyone can make!

    I love these ideas. Handmade. Cards are so sentimental. My favourite is the thread and jewels x #thelist

      I’ve been scouring my craft box to see if I can find any of these jewels, I think I’ll try them with sequins instead.
