Everyone loves a homemade card and these couldn’t be easier! Take a spin through a craft supply store, such as Michael’s, and pick up some blank cards and basic supplies. Grab a mug of hot chocolate, put on some tunes, and start creating!
PRESSED LEAF CARD – Gather fall leaves and press between the pages of a book. After a day or two, carefully remove the leaves and glue to the fronts of blank cards with white craft glue.
TURKEY CARD – Trace around and cut out turkey shapes using a cookie cutter as a guide. (Or, use a craft store shape cutter, such as Sizzix.) Glue on colorful feathers, then glue the turkey to the front of a blank card.
FOAM STAMP CARD – Buy inexpensive foam stamps and water-soluble paint at a craft store. Fill a saucer with a shallow pool of paint, dip stamp in and gently press onto the front of a blank card.
SKELETON LEAF CARD – Buy a packet of skeleton leaves at a craft store. Glue to the front of a dark colored card.
