I’m trying to get this post up ASAP before Christmas, so it’ll be somewhat useful. If you have some extra time on your hands, or if you don’t want to spend lots of money on buying over-priced Christmas cards, just make your own. After completing my final exams for this semester, I commenced my winter break with a stack of blank cards, some pens, and Spotify to keep me company whilst I made cards ’til 4:00AM. <–my idea of a fun all-nighter
What I used:
- white cardstock (to make blank cards)
- colored pens (I used Le Pens)
- butcher paper (to make envelopes)
- baker’s twine (for packaging purposes)
Here are some of the cards I came up with + a few packaging ideas.
Quick packaging idea #1: wrap a slip of butcher paper + baker’s twine around a card in place of an envelope
Quick packaging idea #2: add a couple sprigs of lavender/flowers/herbs to a package for an added sumpin’ sumpin’
(inspired by a scene from the 1994 film adaptation of Little Women, anyone?)
Okay, well I hope this helped someone out there. Enjoy the holiday season + try not to stress out + rest + eat yummy food + stay healthy + appreciate the ones you love. Merry Christmas, y’all. Have a blessed day/night.
