Giggles and Glue Guns

DIY Holiday Cards

I almost always DIY my cards, whether for birthdays, holidays, etc. It’s cheaper, more fun and more meaningful to receive a handmade card. This year, for DIY #8 of Mr. Kate’s 12 DIYs of Chrismahanukkahkwanzaasolstice I made cards using nail polish, embroidery thread, paint samples and wraphia and rhinestones to embellish!

Paint Sample Cards:

  • Collect some free paint chip samples from your local paint or hardware store, cut them out and glue them onto a blank card!

Embroidery Thread Cards:

  • Use embroidery thread color(s) of your choice and an embroidery needle to sew over a light pencil outline of whatever design you want!

Nail Polish Painted Cards:

  • I used press-on letters to get the text and then made a line and box design with various fun nail polish colors from my bathroom cabinet!
