Easy Christmas Cards to make with Children

It is no secret that I love to craft and it seems as though I am passing that love on to MIni and we are having lots of fun at the moment making, baking and crafting for Christmas.

We were inspired by Homemaker Magazine and Chicken and Custard for out latest make.  Super easy child frieldly Christmas cards.



Materials

Cereal box
Blamk cards/Card
Washi tape, we used red and green
Double sided tape or clue
Merry Christmas Stamp

Method

I cut the cereal box to the height we wanted out trees and then Mini put strips on washi tape on to the back of the cereal packet in vertical strips.
 

We then measured the card and made marks every 3cm's.  Initially Mini tried to cut the card with scissors, but we found it easier with the guilotine (but I did supervise him).


He then stuck doublesided tape on the rear of the tree and stuck one (or two) to each of the cards.


He then stamped the front with a Happy Christmas Stamp.
