Simple Holly Christmas Card
We are really excited about Christmas and we are making lots of festive things to give to family and friends. Do you like making cards and experimenting with some simple but new ideas for your Christmas cards? Why not try making these Holly Christmas Cards which are cute and fun to make!
Materials & Equipment We Used
parcel label card ribbon glue scissors
red and green paint thin black marker
How To Make It
First, make some fingerprints on the parcel labels using the green and red paint. Leave these to dry. Next, fold the coloured card in half. Then, cut the ribbon to fit the width and length of the front of the card. Glue the ribbon onto the front of the card in a cross shape to make a parcel.
Once the label is dry, draw around the red berries and the green holly leaves with the fine black marker. Finally, tie the parcel label to the ribbon on the card. The card should look like a real parcel with a special label on it!
This is a Christmas Countdown!
