I am so excited to be taking part in this great series! 25 bloggers are sharing their festive frugal ideas to inspire you in the build-up to Christmas.
Today I’d like to share with you our snowflake card craft. You’ll just need these materials:
- Snowflake-shaped sequins and loose glitter
- Clear contact paper
- Photo frame cards or cardstock
He spent quite a while positioning the snowflake sequins.
I gave him a spoon for the glitter and he rather enjoyed spreading it onto the sticky paper!
If using cardstock:
Cut a piece of cardstock in half and then fold each piece in half. Cut a window from one half, and then glue a piece of the artwork inside the window.
This type of card looks less professional (if that matters to you!!) but has a great see-through effect. I tried both black and white cardstock – the black has better contrast but somehow less Christmassy.
If using photo frame cards:
I found a pack of photo frame cards at the craft store, and I cut the artwork into rectangles slightly larger than the space in the cards. This type of card looks very neat but doesn’t have the window effect.
