These DIY Christmas Cards Are Perfect for An Afternoon ‘Round the Kids Craft Table

While photo cards are sweet, sometimes getting organized enough to get all the parts together just isn’t possible–especially during the holidays. Why not sit down at the table on a Saturday afternoon with your kids and make DIY Christmas cards? They’re pretty inexpensive to execute, and are a really nice family project that is guaranteed to be a unique expression of your family’s style.

Whether you go for a really minimal, craft-paper style card or bust out all your craft tricks with embroidery, glitter and  impressive calligraphy, making your own holiday cards is a great way to channel your creative spirit into a treat for everyone on your mailing list. Here are a few great ideas to stoke your creative fires–if you get them done ASAP they could still arrive before Christmas!
