Christmas Cards DIY 2016

This post is a holiday tradition for us. If you follow this blog, you’ll know that every year we sit down and prepare our Christmas cards for our family and closest friends. It’s fun, it feels good and it marks the start of the holiday season for us. If last year’s DIY was the easiest, this year it’s almost cheating.


We bought two different boxes of gorgeous Christmas cards by My mind’s eye and some matching decorative brads and we played with them until we got our simple yet lovely and über festive Christmas cards. By the way, if you like stationery even a little bit, check My mind’s Eye web. Their products are adorable, beautiful, joyful… I just want to live inside that web. It’s an event organizer’s dream!


The process is ridiculously easy. Just pierce the cards with the decorative brads and write your best wishes. It doesn’t matter if your caligraphy isn’t the best, it’s the thought that matters.

This uncomplicated DIY is perfect for clumsy types and people that have to work late and just want to relax and have a fun time without stressing about the result being perfect. I guess that if you have small kids, they would be happy to help too.


Even if we live far from our family and friends, we want them to know that we care about them and miss them. That’s the purpose of Christmas, isn’t it? (Plus playing with pretty stationery, of course!)
