Handmade Christmas: Notecards

After a busy day recently, we needed a bonus Slow Day on a Friday! Over breakfast I asked, "What do you want to do today?" All three wanted to craft and/or paint - so we were eager to pull out the supplies and get crafting!

My merry elves were busy painting rainbows and fancy cakes and war {guess who!?} and other festive decor. I didn't really start out knowing what I was going to make - but these note cards are what happened during that crafting session!

I'm sort of on a mission to use what I have and this project fit the bill perfectly: blank notecards, paint, a misc cork from who knows where and some snow glitter.

Super simple polka dots {made with a stray cork} and fun Christmas words - I even added some dots to the envelopes!

Super cute! I thought they looked like dot markers--I'm going to give that a try and love the idea of adding glitter. Cute!

I love the children's art work and your cards. Simplicity is pure beauty.

This is such a great idea. You do a great job looking at your present resources and creating a clever use of them. Will you come and do so in my craft closet?! What kind of paint did you use?
