Holiday Card Making Day

Get a head start on holiday cards with this fun DIY workshop!

 

There are some things that just put you in the holiday spirit. The smell of cinnamon and spice, getting the lights and Christmas tree up, and receiving your first holiday-card update in the mail!

 

This year, residents can handcraft cards for their closest family and friends! Add an extra special personal touch to spread the holiday cheer.

 

Getting started

 

While you may find that the residents most likely to show up are those who already love crafting and know all the tricks, make space for newbies!

 

Encourage residents to bring their own crafting supplies, but also have lots of papers, cardstock, stickers, adhesives, scissors, and other bits and baubles, on hand as well.

Gather together card-making supplies:

 

·         Colored construction paper

·         Felt

·         Fabrics

·         Glitter papers

·         Holiday printed scrapbook papers

·         Glue sticks, white glue, and glue guns

·         Bits of ribbon and string

·         Stick on jewels

·         Buttons and other small, flat, trinkets

·         Stickers

·         Multiple pairs of scissors
