Window Christmas Card

Window Christmas Card

Punch squares out of old Christmas cards to decorate this window pane Christmas card. This clever idea from Lisa Fulmer is a great way to recycle those Christmas cards from last year.


Window Christmas Card


Materials:

  • White cardstock
  • Square punch
  • Paint markers
  • Assorted old holiday cards
  • Die-cut snowflakes
  • Ribbon
  • Double-sided tape
  • Envelopes

Instructions:

  1. Trim the white cardstock to fit like a postcard inside of your envelope. Mine is 3.5" x 8.5" to fit inside a standard #10 business envelope.
     
  2. Edge the card with your desired paint marker color - I used red or copper.
     
  3. Punch squares out of your old holiday cards. Look for interesting images to crop inside the squares. Punch some solid color areas too.
     
  4. Edge the squares with a black paint marker.
     
  5. Adhere a selection of squares to your postcard with tape in a windowpane pattern. Leave some space for writing your message.
     
  6. Adhere a strip a ribbon between your squares and writing space, and add a snowflake die-cut inside your "window".
     
  7. Add your message and mail them off!
