DIY Greeting Cards

Snail mail is not as passé as some may think. Cards are fun to receive and can be fun to make too. Save money on holiday cards and make them yourself.

Card stock is relatively cheap especially compared to the prices of cards. Grab some scrap book pages, buttons, sharpies, and you’re on your way to some adorable card ideas. Not sure where to start? Follow my Pinterest board! There are some fun and unique ways to address the envelopes too.

Do a card exchange in your community. Get a couple of friends together with their cards and exchange them! It’s a fun way to spend an afternoon crafting cards and conversing. It will diversify your cards and showcase your friends’ creativity too.

Not much of a crafter?  Use web sites such as to make postcards from family photos.
