    Homemade Christmas Cards

    This year it finally happened – I have made my own Christmas cards to send to friends and family. The idea behind these cards is to reuse paper, cardboard and sewing bits and bobs. The cards also have 2 uses – as a card, and as a tree decoration. Here are a few of the designs, which I hope they look like little presents wrapped with ribbons. Materials old magazines with Christmas images or colours paper samples bought from Oxfam assortment of ribbons pva glue sequins and other sparkles coloured pans   I hope my friends and family enjoy their personalised homemade cards. x
