Make this fun Christmas card for a special friend, and let him start dreaming of a white Christmas.

Approximate Time: 30 minutes

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Fold the red cardboard in half to create a card sized 5.6 inches x 4.1 inches ~ use the ruler to make the fold neat and smooth.
  2. Ad

  3. Use the pair of pattern edged scissors to cut a piece of green cardboard sized 5.5 inches x 4.0 inches.
  4. Glue the green cardboard to the front of the card, carefully ensuring that it is an equal distance from the edges.
  5. Now glue the Christmas ornament to the front of the card, carefully ensuring that it is an equal distance from the edges.
  6. Ad

  7. From the plastic bag, cut a piece sized 4.5 inches x 3.1 inches.
  8. Use the sellotape to stick the plastic bag in place over the Christmas ornament, again ensuring that it is an equal distance from the edges. Only stick three sides with the sellotape ~ leave the top side open, so that you can add the "snowflakes."
  9. Use the standard punch to punch the white printer paper ~ the circles that you have punched, will be the "snowflakes." The more circles you punch, the more snowflakes you will have.
  10. Ad

  11. Add the snowflakes to the piece of bag that you have placed over the ornament and use the sellotape to seal the top side of the bag.
  12. Take the piece of brown riffled cardboard. Cut out the inside, leaving a space of 1 inch from the outer edges of this piece to make a "frame."
  13. Ad

  14. Glue the frame to the front of the card, carefully ensuring that it is an equal distance from the edges.
  15. Make a small bow with the ribbon and glue it in position in the top right corner.
  16. Cut a piece of white printer paper that can be glued to the inside of the card, where you can write a message.
