  Making Christmas Cards

The last two years I have chosen to make my Christmas cards to my close family. I have chosen 2 designs.
I will show you how to make each Design 

Rudolph

To make 1 Rudolph card you will need
  • 1 Blank greetings card
  • Reindeer Template
  • Brown felt
  • Scissors
  • Goggle Eyes
  • Red Mini Pom-Pom
  • PVA Glue
  1. Get a blank white card - you can get these from craft shops, or just fold a piece of card in half to make a card 
  2. Get your template (there easy to find on Pinterest or google) and place it on your card so you know what potion to place your head and antlers
  3. Then place your templates for the head and the antlers on the felt and cut them on - I used a paper clip to hold the template a sewing pin is better to use. 
  4. Once cut the shapes place them on your card, to check the position. Once happy with the position clue on to the card, glue the antlers on first then the head and leave to dry
  5. Once dry place the googly eyes on the felt head, and glue in position and leave to dry
  6. Once dry, dip in the mini pom-pom in the PVA glue and place under the eyes to create the red nose and leave to dry
  7. Once dry you can write your message in the card or add extra like a scarf using festive ribbon, or any other decoration or leave it as it.

Polar Bear

To make 1 Polar Bear card you will need
  • 1 Blank greetings card
  •  Polar Bear Template
  • White Felt
  • Scissors
  • Festive Ribbon
  • PVA Glue
  1. Get a blank white card - you can get these from craft shops, or just fold a piece of card in half to make a card 
  2. Get your template (there easy to find on Pinterest or google) and place it on your card so you know what potion to place your bear, if your doing two bears flip the card to landscape and place the temple so the bears look into each other eyes with noses touching
  3. Then place your template for the bear on the felt and cut them out - I used a paper clip to hold the template a sewing pin is better to use. If your doing Two bears cut out two bears from the felt
  4. Once cut the shapes place them on your card, to check the position. Once happy with the position glue on to the card. If your doing two bears make sure that the noses are touching when glued
  5. Once dry, cut a small piece of ribbon, then glue it on the bear and leave to dry. 
  6. Once dry, using a permanent marker add a small dot for the eye and a small coloured in patch for the nose and leave to dry
  7. Once dry you can write your message in the card or add any other decoration or leave it as it.
