Let’s be honest, Christmas Cards can get pretty pricey and sometimes it cuts into our Christmas shopping budget. It definitely cuts into ours. Our middle child’s birthday is 3 days after Christmas, mine is 2 weeks after Christmas, and the oldest is at the end of January… see what I mean? I can’t afford to spend too much money on Christmas cards, but I don’t want to sacrifice the look of my cards either. Luckily, this little project will turn your favorite family photo into a cute and festive Christmas card, and it’ll save you some money. Intrigued? I’ll tell you how.

12 Days Christmas Card

I know Christmas was 2 weeks ago, but with all the hustle and bustle during last month I haven’t had a chance to share a project I worked on for my cousin. She came up with a fun way to share their year with a “12 Days of Christmas” card. I had so much fun creating this for her and loved the way it turned out! I’m thrilled she asked me to do this for her and her husband and was even more excited about it when I got it in the mail. Thanks Devon!

Last week was a crazy one for me. I was busy working on a couple of Christmas cards for my husband’s family (which I enjoyed making!), and to top it all off my entire family got sick, so that was fun… This week, I’m trying to catch up and I’m excited to share these cute Printable Christmas Gift Card Holders. You no longer have to worry about getting a card to go along with your gift card, and there’s room at the top for a small note. These are super easy to put together and your friends & family will love it!

Follow the tutorial below to put your gift card holder together:

gift-card-brown-tutorial-1Make sure you fold the card in thirds along the lines. This step makes it easier when you have to glue the tabs down.

Gift-card-brown-tutorial-2

Fold the tabs and apply glue (or a thin piece of double sided tape) on the tabs.

Once you’ve applied glue to the tabs, fold over the bottom portion of the holder as pictured above where the tabs are attached and wait until the glue is dry.

Once the glue is dry, insert your gift card, then fold the top over and you’re all done! Easy, right?

I can’t believe November is almost over, and next week will be Thanksgiving! I’m getting around to prepping for Christmas, and I’m excited to share this Christmas Tree Countdown. I wanted to create something my 3 year old could cross off and see how many days are left instead of writing a “random” number down. When I showed this countdown to him, he got so excited and kept asking if it was Christmas yet. I can’t wait to finally start counting down ’til Christmas!
