I have finally done something that I have said I'm going to do for so many years, I'm not even sure when the idea of making cards occurred to me.
As I mentioned the other day, I am a bit of a procrastinator, every year I'm going to make this, that and the other and Christmas Eve I generally have made nothing! This is also the first year in about a decade that I'm not working so perhaps that made it a little easier but I finally made some Christmas cards.
I have been sorting out my ever growing supply of craft stuff and found a card making kit that came free with a magazine, I pretty sure the magazine was bought before the appearance of the last two children (just to give you an idea of my procrastination). Anyway on Monday most of the house was home sick and I found myself alone, with them all sleeping so I decided to play.
Honestly I could do a tutorial but it was as simple as playing around with the embellishments, cutting the paper and just gluing bits and bobs.
Here are some other ones I made
If you haven't done this before, I highly recommend doing it, I went out and priced this stuff and I found kits range from $5 upwards and after what was a highly stressful week with sick kids and sick husband, it was so relaxing because anything goes. Once the house is finished (yes I know that's what this blog is about I've not forgotten, I'm just sidetracked by Christmas) I'm going to come back to it, so much fun and the purchased embellishments makes it easy for kids to try their hand at it as well.
DIY Delight or Disaster? It's a delight, easy, cheap and oh so relaxing!
Thanks for reading,
