12 Days of Christmas ~ DIY Christmas Cards

Hi guys!

I wanted to do this post near the beginning of 12 Days of ChristmasΒ so that if you wanted to do these cards for your own friends and family you’ll have time to put them together and send them off before the 25th πŸ™‚

Last year I decided that I was going to create my own Christmas cards because it means so much more to receive a handmade card rather than a generic, store bought one. My friends and family really loved them, and I even have a few left over to give this year.

I bought most of my supplies at MichealsΒ craft store (except for a few beads and cotton rounds). Their crafting supplies are a little pricey, but they definitely have the best selection and variety to pick from. They also sometimes have good sales on seasonal items and you can usually find coupons online to save some extra cash.

Here are all the cards I created, hopefully they will give you some inspiration if you decide to create your own:

So throw on a Christmas movie, make yourself some hot chocolate, plug in your glue gun and get creative πŸ™‚
