Creative Christmas Cards

I have a confession to make--I throw away the majority of the artwork that the boys make. For a while I saved it all, but the projects that they made at home, Sunday School, and preschool started taking over. So, I started pitching papers as soon as they came in the door.

Not all though.

I have saved (a lot, actually) of the painting projects they have done over the past year because I wanted to use their art to make some note cards to give as Christmas gifts.

I bought some blank cards with envelopes at Michaels and then cut out portions of their pictures to showcase on the front of the card.  I just used a glue stick to glue them on and then "signed" the boys' artwork with "M&B 2010"

I love how they turned out! Plus, I was able to use their artwork in a really creative and special way. I think the grandparents, my grandmother, and the boys' teachers will love the cards (Rhonda, you must forget that you will be getting this for Christmas!)

Here is just a sample of the cards I made.

You're brilliant! Great idea! I will have to copy this for some other holiday. I still have way to many things left to make for Christmas!

Super cute idea! I've heard of using the artwork as wrapping paper, but hadn't even thought of turning it into a card. One of the Meng cousins used the hand print of her daughter for some cards that turned out cute too. So many cute, crafty ideas, so little time!
