DIY for people with no talent:
Handmade Christmas Cards!
So, I’ve been making Christmas cards lately, cause I’m too cheap to buy actual presents for my friends. I figured, while I do these little fuckers, I might as well show a tutorial for everyone who suck at handmade stuff like I do. This tutorial is especially for left-handed people, I know you have a hard time with scissors, bless your souls! I feel your pain!
I’ll show you how to make these two particular cards. I call the first one “The tacky one” & the second one “The Failed Experiment”.
What you will need:
- Colored & white cardboard or paper for the cards.
- Ribbons or textile for decoration.
- Buttons/Gems or some other decorative crap.
- Motherfucking scissor!
- GLITTER! *_*
- More ribbons!
The Failed Experiment
Cut the colored cardboard in the shape you want your card to be in. I stuck with the classic, boring rectangle. Cut another smaller rectangle (preferably white) to glue on top and use as canvas.
Draw the gingerbread man and carefully cut it. I can’t draw to save my cat’s life, so I used a google image for reference here.
Decorate the gingerbread however you wish. I used white paper for the glaze and red for the button hearts.
Use your ribbons to capture the innocent gingerbread man into a prison of textile! And you’re done!
The Tacky One
Step One: same as the previous.
Use colored paper or cardboard and cut the shape you want your presents to be in. Square is good!
Use ribbons to tie around the presents, make little bows and glue them on top. You can place buttons or gems on top, for a tacky Holiday spirit.
If you hate blank space like I do, decorate the hell out of it!!! I used gems here, but you can get creative and use buttons, pine branches, wood.
Glue the presents neat and tightly together. If you’re feeling adventurous you can also put a fuckton of glitter and voila!
Have you guys ventured into the handmade crafts lately? What are your plans for the Holidays?
