Christmas present thank you cards

Last year I made some lovely Christmas present thank you cards with toddler E, recycling wrapping paper. They are really easy to make and I was quite proud I had designed them myself!

It’s a great activity to do on a wet and windy day, huddled inside warm – crafting 🙂

We used plain cards, a snowflake stamp and recycled Christmas paper for the background and to make stars.

First E used the stamper on the red paper we were going to use for the background, but you could just use large pens and make dots. I then cut it up into rectangles, a bit smaller than the cards. She added glue and stuck the background paper onto the card.

Next she used glue and chose triangles to make the stars. She really enjoyed choosing the paper combination and seeing how triangles could make the stars.

I wrote the thank you message inside the card and she drew a picture on the other side.

We really enjoyed making these and will do the same this year.

Here’s to our next crafting adventure!
