Create handmade Christmas Cards to give to friends and family and add a personal holiday message with Talking Tags. An easy DIY craft tutorial idea.
Do you make handmade Christmas cards to send to friends and family? It usually takes a lot of time but something that I really enjoy doing.
My cards this year look very fancy with all of the layers and pearls, but it was actually very easy to do. I hope you enjoy this Christmas Card tutorial so you can make your own too!
Supplies Used: Some links may be too similar items when exact items couldn’t be found online.
I started with the Sizzix Bigz Snow Flurry Die. It cuts 3 different sizes of snowflakes. I layered them and added Basic Pearls to the center. I found a similar die online, it’s Snowflake Sizzix Die.
For the card, I cut the following layers.
Then layered all of the pieces together.
I do have to say my favorite part of my Christmas Cards this year, is the talking tag I put inside each one.
Talking Tags is made by Sizzix. I scanned the code (it looks like a QR code, but it isn’t), and recorded my message. Then I scanned the sticker label and reproduced it onto Avery labels so I could have enough of the same code for all of my cards.
Then I added one sticker to the inside of each of my cards. The sticker label looks like this.
To hear the Christmas message all you have to do is download the FREE Talking Tag app in iTunes and scan the code.
You can do it too and listen to our Christmas Message!
Just scan the code on the screen, and it should work just the same.
