Make these pretty buttons and corrugated board Christmas cards with your kiddos to send to friends and family.
Do you remember making cards As a child for friends and family? It is a fun part of celebrating and counting down to Christmas! This year, we made buttons & corrugated board Christmas tree cards to send to friends overseas!
This is a lovely process craft and children can decorate their trees as they wish.
What to do:
First, use a triangular corrugated board shape to make the tree print. Press it into the paint and then onto your paper.
Cut the triangular tees and then stick them onto another corrugated board that is folded into a card.
The kids can now decorate the trees by randomly adding buttons or making patterns. If you are concerned about the little ones that will put the buttons in their mouths, rather use their fingerprints to “decorate” the tree!
Lastly, a corrugated star was stuck on top of the tree.
You can now add more details, perhaps using glitter or glitter glue.
So pretty! These Christmas cards are ready to be mailed to our friends in England and Canada!
