December 4, 2012Countdown to Kitschmas – Make your own Christmas cards!
No self-respecting mid century-loving crafter would EVER consider buying their Christmas cards at the grocery store – there are too many great vintage ideas for homemade ones out there!
In my opinion, the alchemy of burlap and felt will result in a Christmas card that will be the envy of all your loved ones. There will never be a design era where these are considered anything but stinkin’ cute.
Also making good use of fabric odds and ends is this adorable Christmas ornament design. These would be a lot of fun to do with kids I think. They could have a blast decorating the ornaments with sequins and trims.
I’m not a huge fan of things with teddy bears on them but I do really love the use of calico and felt in these cards. I’d do gingerbread men instead of the teddy bears – now that would be cute as a button!
Here’s another cute one to do with kids. You just make a triangle shaped stamp (they recommend linoleum but that sounds weird so I’d try a potato) and decorate the stamped cards with felt to make snowmen, elves, christmas trees, angels, and Santa!
What are your Christmas card plans, vintage lovers? Have you ever made your own cards?
