DIY LAST MINUTE CHRISTMAS CARDS
When you're stressed for time you can still make handmade Christmas cards that are pretty and festive. The basic idea of these cards is using printed cards or papers and not spending a lot of time fussy cutting images for embellishments.
When creating an accordion card you need three pieces of cardstock in the same size and something to bind them with, or one piece of long cardstock that folds into three. I chose the first option and I'm using Graphic 45 Ephemera cards from the St. Nicholas collection. The binding is done with washi tape... fast and easy!
GIFT CARD HOLDER
Another way to jazz up a basic last minute Christmas card is to turn it into a gift card holder so we'll have a card and a gift all in one. The way to do that fast is again to use pre cut pieces of cardstock. I used the G45 Ephemera cards again. It makes the work even faster if the cardstock already have patterns, quotes and decorations like these cards.
