Idea For A Christmas Card

If you haven't sent out any Christmas cards yet, take a look at this cool idea I saw from familyfun.com! It's quite simple actually and the best part, your kid have a big role in this and it could make a great family project that you can all do together

Kid's Art
Inspired by a child's drawings of snowmen, this card, from the Erickson family of Burbank, California, is a treat for both the sender and the receiver.
Sheets of plain paper
Sheets of patterned paper
Card stock
Pens or pencils
Color copy service
Glue stick

Time needed: Under 1 Hour
1. To start, draw several 3- by 3 1/2-inch squares on a sheet of paper, and have your child draw a snowman in each square. Have color copies made and cut out the pictures.

2. Cut an 8 1/2 by 11-inch sheet of card stock in half, then fold each in half to make two cards. With a glue stick, attach patterned paper from a scrapbook store to the front of the card and then a snowman to the patterned paper.

Inside the card, use photo corners (available at craft stores) to affix a photo of your kids or family.

Since I already made our Christmas card through digiscrapping, I would probably get this idea for Father's Day/Valentine's/Bday Cards for my daughters to make next year!
