DIY Christmas cards

Shake things up with these DIY Christmas cards.

These gorgeous Christmas Shaker Cards are so easy to make and provide the perfect personal touch for the festive season!

• ‘Jolly & Joy’ Christmas Scatters, Wonderland
• ‘Jolly & Joy’ C6 Card & Envelope 6pk
• Pencil
• Scissors or scalpel
• Double sided tape
• Clean plastic pocket or acetate
• Stickers, flourishes or papers from the ‘Kaisercraft’ range

Step 1 Decide on the design you wish to create on your cards. We chose a star cut out and a circle to best show off the scatters.
Step 2 Draw the shape you wish to cut out onto the card front. If you are not confident in drawing you can print and trace a design off the internet.
Step 3 Neatly cut out the shape using scissors or a scalpel.
Step 4 Cut out 2 pieces of acetate or use a plastic pocket that is the size of your card. Stick the 2 pieces together using double sided tape along the edges but leave one edge open. Fill the opening with your scatters and then close the last edge with more double sided tape. You have created your shaker pocket.
Step 5 Using double sided tape attach the shaker pocket to the inside of the card front. Turn over to see how your shaker card has come to life.
Step 6 To finish, decorate the front of your card using stickers, papers or flourishes from the Kaisercraft range.
