New Year Card, Christmas Card, or Holiday Card?

Sending New Year cards is a cordial and stylish way to get in touch with friends, family, colleagues, and neighbors. New Year cards are not just a last resort for those who forgot to make Christmas cards. There are many reasons you might decide to send a New Year card this year instead of a Christmas or holiday card.
One of the biggest advantages of New Year cards is there’s no rigid etiquette regarding when they have to arrive. Some choose to send New Year cards in early December and some choose to send them as late as a few weeks after January 1st. New Year cards give you the option of spreading the warmth of the holiday season even after December 25th has passed.

Another possible reason you might prefer New Year cards is to avoid any religious assertions or implications. You might feel most comfortable knowing that everyone can recognize and celebrate the New Year regardless of what they believe in. You prioritize inclusion, and want to send a card that anyone can enjoy.
Or, maybe you really like New Year ideals. You want to emphasize themes such as happiness, renewal, second chances, goal setting, and healthy self-improvement in your Happy New Year cards.

Perhaps you already knew you weren’t going to be able to make a Christmas card. Maybe the kids were off at college or your dog hadn’t been groomed in a while, and all your group photos were outdated. Luckily, you know everyone will finally get together in December for a holiday gathering. If that’s the case, use that time to take the perfect picture for a Happy New Year card. Your friends and family will love looking at a seasonally-theme photo, despite if it’s on a New Year or Christmas card.
Alternatively, maybe you waited a bit too long to make a Christmas card and you don’t have time to make one before December 25th. You don’t want your loved ones to feel left out, but you just can’t stand the thought of sending a late Christmas card. Or maybe you lost your address list when you spilled coffee on your computer. Now you need to wait to receive holiday cards in order to collect everyone’s addresses. No matter what the circumstances are, sending New Year cards is a savvy decision. You won’t have to worry about excluding anyone and can still be a part of the widespread tradition of sending cards to those you care about.
Whatever rationale you have, a lighthearted and loving New Year card is always a terrific option for an end-of-the-year card. You can never go wrong by saying, “Happy New Year 2021.”

Create The Perfect Card

When you begin planning your New Year card, the first choice you’ll have to make is if you want to include pictures. There are advantages to both sides. Choosing a card without a picture may take less time to plan, while a card with one or more photos can seem more personal. No need to stress – Minted offers a wide variety of both options.
If you choose a New Year card without photos, you mostly just need to think about customizing your text and colors. If you choose to do a photo card, start thinking about which picture you want to use. You can make a customized card with lots of pictures if you’re having trouble choosing just one. If you’ve chosen the perfect photo but don’t know which design it’ll look best on, use our Text Us Your Photo service. Send in your photo and answer a couple questions. Then, a Minted stylist will select five designs that your photo looks best on and will present you with your options.
If you’d rather browse through card options yourself, there are many choices to keep in mind. Here is everything you should consider when choosing your superlative and unique New Year card:

Style: This is one of the most important choices you’ll have to make when planning your card. Our New Year cards come in nine different styles:

  • Simple & Minimalist: Understated and chic, Simple & Minimalist New Year cards look formal and fresh. With their spare use of words, these cards are perfect for accentuating a single family photo.
  • Botanical: The wintry botanicals on these cards are playful and floral, and pair very well with photos of children or newborn babies.
  • Modern & Edgy: Choose from organic splatter-paint designs to letterpress calligraphy designs to suit your contemporary and edgy aesthetic.
  • Funny: Bold fonts, humorous quotes, and comic-like templates, Funny New Year cards are a great option for families with young children.
  • Classic & Elegant: These New Year cards are the most refined and exude sophistication. They are flawlessly exquisite without being lavish.
  • Bohemian: Show off your idiosyncratic style with a Bohemian New Year card design. These cards work great for young or newlywed couples.
  • Vintage: Dive back into the past with a Vintage card. Give your friends and family the chance to reminisce over old-fashioned style while simultaneously enjoying your 21st century Happy New Year cards.
  • Painterly: From watercolor backdrops to brushstroke strikes, Minted offers a range of Painterly New Year cards for the artists or aspiring artists out there.
  • Bold & Typographical: Exhilarated about the alliterative nature of 2020? Emphasize these numbers with a Bold & Typographical New Year card!

Theme: Deciding on a theme is also one of the most difficult choices when it comes to customizing your New Year card. We offer six different themes:

  • Year-in-Review: Year-in-Review-themed cards are perfect if you’re looking for something that can accommodate more writing. Year-in-Review cards allow you to update your friends and family on your life without writing a letter.
  • Pet: If you love taking pictures of your pet, consider going with a Pet-themed card! Show off an adorable photo of a new pet, or use this as an option if you don’t have a recent family photo.
  • Joy: As the title implies, Joy-themed New Year cards highlight the words “joy” or “joyful.” These cards radiate happiness, and are a great way to spread cheerful vibes to everyone you care about.
  • Peace: Spotlighting the word “peace,” the peace symbol, and even the peace sign with two fingers, Peace-themed cards will convey tranquility and beauty to all of your recipients.
  • Location-inspired: Location-Inspired-themed Happy New Year cards are perfect for showing your loved ones an adventure you went on without using your words. A family photo on the beach, group photo huddled in the snow, or a photo in front of an iconic landmark are just the beginning of what you could include in one of these cards.

Shape: Pick from many different shapes to find the kind of card that most suits your liking. Choose anything from classic shapes like straight edge and round edge to abstract shapes like bubble scallop and scalloped circle.

Format: If you’re looking for a more elevated New Year card, consider a letterpress or foil-pressed card. Letterpress cards are well-renowned for the deep impressions they make in Minted’s thick paper, making them unique and tactile. Foil-pressed cards are available in many different foil colors and add a festive, eye-catching touch to regular cards. Choose from luxe foil colors like gold, silver, rose gold, red, and green.

Type of paper: We offer six types of luxe paper, including smooth signature, signature, recycled, pearlescent, DoubleThick, and TripleThick™.

Did you finally choose the perfect New Year card, but can’t decide what to write on it? Luckily, there are no rules to what you should write in a New Year’s card. For a minimalist approach, simply write “Happy New Year” followed by your name. You can also write a year in review paragraph that sums up the highlights of the year. For something humorous, you can include a funny quote or pun. For something meaningful, include a famous or inspirational quote. The greeting options are endless.
Don’t forget that you can even add customizable text to the back of your card if you don’t have enough space on the front. With so many customizable features, you can truly make your New Year card look however you want it.

Guaranteed Perfection

All of our New Year cards were design challenge winners created by independent artists. We are dedicated to perfection, so all of our designs are unique, stylish, and contemporary. Our goal is to provide you with beautiful cards that match your exact vision and desire. So after you’ve personalized your New Year card, receive unlimited free proofs until your card is nothing short of flawless.

Holding a baby shower can be a little risky – sometimes a baby decides to be born before the baby shower! However, if you’re going to a baby shower, before or after the baby arrives, a card for the baby shower can be a wonderful greeting and a treasured memento. 

Probably one of the most traditional days to create a card, birthdays are the ideal opportunity to go all out with your papercraft creations and really celebrate the day someone was born in style! Birthday cards normally work best if they’re really personal and tailored specifically to that person. 

Don’t miss these brilliant birthday card tutorials:

While most children being Christened are probably too young to appreciate a card and would far rather eat one, a Christening card can create a wonderful memento for that person to look upon in years to come. Pastel colours, plus whites and golds are often the best colour options for Christening cards.

For a beloved colleague, friend or neighbour who’s moving on to pastures new, a farewell card is both a chance to show your appreciation of the person and help stay in contact.

Being unwell is one of the most difficult experiences of a person’s life, whether it’s the flu or a life-changing condition. Physical or mental health alike, a ‘get well soon’ card is a beautiful way to tell someone you’re thinking of them and wishing them well. Always take care with these cards, as ill health can be a sensitive subject, but a heartfelt card with a lovely long message can sometimes be just what a person needs to cheer them up at the worst time.

A good luck card is so versatile, it can be used for a whole host of different events and opportunities.

When we say ‘graduation’, it doesn’t just mean someone finishing university. You can have graduation ceremonies when finishing pre-school now! No matter the age or institution, graduating is a momentous moment for anyone, so show them how pleased you are with a personalised graduation card.

A retirement card is a great opportunity for lots of people to come together and write their favourite memories about a coworker and a friend. So if you’re papercrafting a retirement card, make sure it’s a big one with plenty of room inside for fond memories and well wishes. 

Whether it’s starting school for the first time, a new school completely or just a new year, a ‘back to school’ card is a kind and subtle gesture to let a possibly nervous student know that you’re thinking of them. It could be your own children, nieces, nephews or your siblings. It could even be your mum doing a college course she always wanted to try! There’s never a wrong time to let someone know that you’re thinking of them.

As the wonderful Elton John taught us, ‘sorry’ seems to be the hardest word to say. So why not do it through a heartfelt and personal card that really shows how you feel? Humans are fickle creatures and not always very good at expressing emotions, especially if they’re the one in the wrong. So swallow your pride and show it through a keepsake handmade card. It’s hard not to forgive that much thought and effort. 

Learn how to craft this stunning sorry card here.

Greetings cards that express sympathy for the loss of a loved one can be very tricky to make. You don’t want to go over the top, but you want to show that you care. Put yourself in their shoes if you’re making a sympathy card and that will help guide you in creating a piece of papercraft that shows you’re thinking of them without making things more difficult during an already difficult time. 

The guides of future generations definitely deserve their own type of greeting card on this list. Teaching is an incredibly difficult and important job, so be they a primary school, secondary school, college, university teacher or beyond, a handmade ‘thank you’ card from you or your children is always worth the effort. 

Saying ‘thank you’ can sometimes be as difficult as saying sorry. But, it can also be the most wonderful gift for someone to receive. So whether you’re grateful to a friend, a health worker, a mentor or even a stranger who helped you when you fell down outside the supermarket, a small gesture in the form of a handmade card is the perfect way to show your gratitude.

For a tremendous thank you card tutorial, click here.

As we’ve already mentioned, humans are funny creatures and, more often than not, terrible at expressing their feelings. If you know someone is going through a difficult time, perhaps they’re not ready to talk about it yet, a gentle ‘thinking of you’ type of greetings card is an ideal way to show someone you care without overwhelming them. This type of greetings card can be a good alternative to a ‘sympathy’ card if you feel like the ‘sympathy’ card isn’t quite right for the situation or the recipient. 

The most romantic day of the year! Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is here to stay, so why not embrace the day with your whole heart! Plus, if you’re worried about Valentine’s Day being too ‘tacky’ or ‘commercial’, a handmade card is the right way to show your love without buying into the commercial side of the holiday. Just remember, pinks and reds are obligatory!

Tips for what to write in Christmas Cards

Before you write each card, think about the person you’re writing to. In addition to spreading the joy of the Christmas season, a heart-felt personalized Christmas message will make the recipient feel appreciated and special. Which really is what the Christmas season is about!

For close family or friends, take the time to compose a message that specifically mentions something you know they’ve experienced during the year or something that is coming up in the new year. This could be to do with their family, work promotions, holidays they’ve taken or will take etc.

For a client, business associate, or more distant relative, you may want to write a more formal Christmas card message wishing them a joyous Christmas season. You may also like to thank a client for their continued custom over the past year.

Add a Christmas quote or funny message if appropriate to your Christmas wishes to help share the joy of the holiday season.

Make sure you send out your Christmas cards in the first week of December (and no later than the second week). Don’t forget to put your return address on the envelope in case the recipient would like to send a card back to you.

DIY Christmas card in kindergarten from buttons.

Before the New Year, kindergartens traditionally make various crafts for the holiday, draw, sculpt, and also make postcards.It will be interesting for children to make a New Year’s applique from buttons. If you do not have that many buttons, then you can replace them with a circle cut out of colored cardboard or paper.

Making such a New Year card is very simple – we take a sheet of cardboard and glue buttons in the form of Santa Claus, a snowflake or a Christmas tree on it. Instead of buttons, you can also stick on small plasticine balls and develop children’s fingers. Whether you need to draw a contour on the sheet in advance or not is up to you.You can only outline the general outline of the drawing or show on the board what can be made from buttons and give scope to children’s creativity.

In kindergarten, you can make Christmas cards with children in the form of Christmas trees. For this you will need:

  • a lot of colored paper that needs to be cut into strips of different lengths and triangles,
  • decorative star or snowflake made of sequins,
  • braid for decoration is also suitable,
  • glue and cardboard for postcards.

The Christmas tree on the card can be absolutely any, you can see examples below.

New Year’s cards turn out to be very interesting, if there is something inside when opening. It looks like a children’s book with characters that “come to life” on every page. Children are just delighted with these cards. Making it as easy as shelling pears. To do this, you will need a postcard base, green paper, scissors, and a template.

It is better to print and cut a Christmas tree template, then transfer it to green paper.

The dashed lines are the fold lines and the solid line is the cut line.

How to make a beautiful card with a Christmas tree for the New Year:

  • transfer the template to green paper,
  • bend the tree in half,
  • cut along wavy lines,
  • make folds along fold lines,
  • glue the blank to the base of the New Year’s card,
  • Straighten the Christmas tree and decorate it with balls,
  • below, under the tree, we glue the gifts.

90,000 New Year’s CARDS – 82 DIY ideas.

Good afternoon. Today we will make our own New Year cards. I will show you the most interesting ways and techniques. You will not only see photographs, but also receive detailed instructions and diagrams for creating each such postcard. I will give you the necessary master classes to illustrate complex techniques (quilling, origami) step by step.

I decided to divide the whole article into 5 parts – on topics of New Year’s cards.

  1. First, we will look at a variety of Christmas trees on postcards.
  2. Then I’ll show you what Santa Clauses can decorate your postcard.
  3. Then we will make Snowmen using different techniques.
  4. Then we move on to the Christmas wreaths.
  5. And, of course, consider the application of snowflakes on postcards.

So let’s get started …

Part One

FIR-tree on New Year’s cards.

Method # 1 – paper triangles.

If you still have old signed New Year’s cards, you can no longer transfer them in the second round. But you can use them to create a NEW postcard. You can cut a triangle out of a New Year’s card, put it on a leg and get a Christmas tree. The New Year’s motive on the card turned out by itself – like the coloring of a Christmas tree.

Or you can cut a herringbone out of a regular cardboard box – a rough corrugated packing cardboard will be in harmony with delicate lace or pearls of beads.And you will receive an elegant handmade New Year card.

You can cut out a triangular silhouette of a Christmas tree with wavy edges and glue it with sequins imitating Christmas tree decorations on the tree.

You can give the triangular silhouette of the herringbone a scalloped edge (as in the photo of the postcards below). And also you can cut out several silhouettes at once and arrange them on one New Year’s card.

On the blue New Year’s card with the photo below, we see how a three-dimensional lobed herringbone is glued together from three triangles.

Or one silhouette of the Christmas tree can be larger in size and with a different shade of color – we put it as a duplicate background under the upper silhouette (as on the right Christmas card with the photo below).

Method # 2 – paper ribbons on a New Year’s card.

A herringbone appliqué can be formed very quickly and easily from paper or textile ribbons.

You can use regular strips of colored paper. Or buy a braid with embroidery in the sewing department of the store.Or in the gift department of the store, buy a sheet of elegant wrapping paper and cut patterned stripes from it for a Christmas tree applique on a New Year’s card.

Here in the photo below we see several options for creating such a Christmas tree applique.

Paper strips do not have to be glued in strict order and symmetry. You can cut strips of four lengths – 10 cm, 8 cm, 5 cm, 3 cm.And arrange them in a chaotic oblique order starting from the bottom 10 cm, in the middle we lay strips of 3 cm and 5 cm, and at the top 3 cm.We crown it all with a paper star and get a New Year’s card with our own hands as in the left photo below.

And you can also take a triangle cut out of thick cardboard and glue it over with strips of paper or fabric, bending the edges of the strips to the wrong side of the cardboard triangle. And we will get a ready-made elegant Christmas tree, which you can safely stick on your postcard (right photo below).

But not only flat appliqués can be made with paper strips. You can make Christmas trees using 3D technique.Here is a detailed description of how to make a looped Christmas tree with your own hands on a red New Year’s card from the left photo below.

Step 1 – cut narrow and long strips – their lengths will also be different: 2 strips of 15 cm, 2 strips of 12 cm, 2 strips of 9 cm, and one strip of 7 cm.

Step 2 – in the front side of the card with a blade we make slots – 2 slots on both sides along the imaginary line (the width of each slot is such that our strip can easily fit into it).

Step 3 – push each strip with one end through 2 slots – turn it with a loop and return to the same slots again. Glue the ends of the strip that meet on the side in the same loop as on the opposite side.

Repeat the same procedure with the rest of the strips. Naturally, it is necessary to arrange the strips from bottom to top in decreasing order (long at the bottom, short at the top).

Or you can cut 6 equal length paper strips of 12 cm .Bend each strip in half and twist the flaps of the halves with each other cross to cross – in a checkerboard weave. It just looks difficult. But in fact it is simple. Here you can tear out a sheet from a notebook and cut 6 strips of any length and practice on such a rough material – to see how simple and easy everything is.

And here is another New Year’s card, where the Christmas tree is also made of strips of paper . Only here crepe paper is used (with a crumpled wrinkled effect) – it is sold in rolls in stationery stores (like wallpaper).

Step 1 – Cut wide strips of different lengths – 12 cm, 10 cm, 8 cm, 6 cm, 4 cm.

Step 2 – On the card we outline the tier lines (rounded), to these lines we will glue each tier of our Christmas tree made of paper. We attach a strip of double-sided tape to these drawn lines.

Step 3 – Take the longest strip (12 cm) and fold its entire upper edge into small folds – tweaks – and place these tints on the bottom line of the tape.Take the next largest strip (10 cm) and do the same. And so we move to the upper tier of the tree. Then we decorate the Christmas tree on the New Year’s card for any design at our discretion.

Method number 3 – paper circles.

And here is a way to make a Christmas tree on a New Year’s card using cut-out paper mugs. You can cut the circles to the same size (like the blue postcard in the photo below). Or you can cut the circles into 4 different sizes – 2 circles for each size.And then the Christmas tree will turn out to be triangular in shape (tapering upward), as on the red New Year’s card with the photo below.

Method number 4 – quilling technique for postcards for the New Year.

And here is another technique that makes very beautiful DIY Christmas cards. Beautiful twists can be made from paper strips.

This is how the process of creating a Christmas tree using the quilling technique looks like. We cut the paper into even strips (it is convenient to do this under the ruler with a paper knife – on a wooden board so as not to cut the table.Or you can buy ready-made quilling strips. Or get hold of a machine for cutting quilling strips.

Next – on a toothpick or on a special metal tool for quilling we wind a strip of paper.

Place each twist in the circle of template (so that the twists are the same size). Let the tight twist open a little, unwind – but within the framework of a round stencil. And then glue the tail-tip of the twist to the barrel of the twist itself .That is, we fix its size. So it will be possible to remove it from the stencil frame and not be afraid that it will unwind and increase its size.

If you do not have a stencil, you can use the round cream or beverage caps . Place the twist on the bottom of the glass or lid and allow it to unwind to the diameter of the lid. Then gently pull it out with tweezers and fix the twist tail with glue.

Pinch the round twists on one side with your finger to give it the shape of a drop.

Putting drops of different sizes in pairs – and we get a quick and simple Christmas tree.

The quilling technique allows you to create a variety of Christmas tree patterns from paper twists.

Method # 5 – paper rolls.

A paper can be cut into wide strips of different lengths – and each strip can be rolled up. It’s easy to do if you wrap the around the pencil – glue it, wait for the glue to set – and only then remove it from the pencil.These rolls of different lengths make a beautiful Christmas tree on a postcard. Do it yourself quickly and easily. Paper can be used plain color . Or buy sheets of gift wrapping paper (sold in the gift department).

Method number 6 – mosaic herringbone on a postcard.

You can use any small details as a material for creating a Christmas tree. Sliced ​​snowflakes or butterflies.Buttons or origami stars or bolts and nuts (if you are preparing a postcard for your husband and want to make it in a brutal style).

Method # 7 – lace Christmas tree on a New Year’s card.

You can make beautiful lace on a New Year’s card. You can use ready-made lace paper napkins (available at your local hardware store, same as your cupcake tins). These napkins are often placed under cakes and other culinary items.)

Or you can create paper lace yourself – fold the paper as for cutting a snowflake. And put an interesting pattern with holes along the folded edge.

And you can fold the cut-out snowflake itself in the shape of a herringbone and glue it on a New Year’s card.

Method # 8 – origami technique.

And here are New Year’s cards, which are decorated with a Christmas tree folded from a napkin. Such folding origami in the form of a Christmas tree are made quite quickly and from a simple square (you do not need to cut anything).The main thing is that each upper square is slightly smaller in size than the lower one. And then the tiers of our Christmas tree will narrow towards the top.

Here below I have depicted a diagram that illustrates the process of creating paper blanks for a Christmas tree for a postcard.

But you yourself can come up with YOUR OWN interpretations of a modular Christmas tree made of paper. Come up with your own triangular folds and create your own personalized Christmas card with a Christmas tree.

Method # 9 – folding Christmas tree on a postcard.

And here is another folding Christmas tree. Everything here is quite simple and is made from a detached solid sheet of cardboard. And if you wish, you can additionally decorate the Christmas tree with inserts of colored paper and decorations.

And you can also quickly fold an origami Christmas tree out of paper in this semicircular pattern. You can copy the shape of the tree and fold lines directly from the monitor screen. To zoom in or out on the screen, scroll the mouse wheel forward or backward while holding down the Ctrl button.

Or you can make such a tree yourself without a drawing. And just bending the semicircle back and forth several times, as shown in the picture below.

If such a semicircular pattern for a folding Christmas tree is made not with an even edge, but by jagging the circle of the pattern into soft ruffles or teeth, then the edges of our tiers at the Christmas tree will turn out to be curly, as in the photo of New Year’s cards below.

Method # 10 – paper carving.

Also suitable for Christmas cards is the cuff carving technique. This technique is very easy to do. Part of the picture is cut with a razor blade and folded back. We see the most primitive example in the right photo below – half of the contours of the Christmas tree and snowflakes are cut off and simply bent.

You can make a double contour – and then the fold will turn out in the form of a narrow silhouette strip, as it is done on the left postcard with the photo below.

A can be cut and bent downwards each tier of the herringbone silhouette on the card.And we will get a Christmas card with the photo below.

You can first practice on any rough piece of paper – to see how simple it is to implement such a carving technique on a postcard, and make your own unique New Year’s craft.

We have considered New Year’s cards with a Christmas tree theme, and now let’s look at all the other New Year’s themes with which you can decorate our cards with your own hands.

Part Two

FATHER FROST on postcards.

Large applications in the shape of Santa Claus will decorate any Christmas card. There is no need to make a full-length silhouette of Santa Claus somewhere in the corner of the postcard in the form of a small booger. It is better to take the largest size of a hat, beard and take the whole part of the postcard with these main elements of Santa Claus – a red nose, mustache, beard, hat.

You can fold Santa Claus for a postcard using the origami technique – as shown in the photo below.

Part Three

SNOWMAN on New Year’s cards.

Now you can move on to the new character of the Christmas holidays – the snowman. Usually we are accustomed to seeing him on crafts in the form of three white round pieces and a bucket on his head. But you can get creative with the task of portraying a snowman on a postcard. For example, make it look out from behind the Christmas tree – as in the left photo below.

Or take a ready-made card with a snowman – cut it into strips of different lengths – and from these strips make a herringbone pyramid.Fold in such a way that on some of the strips you can see the sly face of a snowman (as on the left Christmas card with the photo below).

Also, you are not required to make a snowman applique on a classic white paper postcard. You can take the music staff of a New Year’s song on the Internet – put it on print, and cut out round discs from such paper for applying a snowman.

Or take a printed text that tells about New Year’s traditions and cut rounds for a snowman from such a text.

You can make a snowman on a postcard from a paper fan. When the fan is bent in half – and its blades unfold in a circle.

You can make a snowman on a postcard using the quilling technique. Twist twist modules from paper white strips, and fold a quilling snowman.

You can portray a snowman in an interesting and unusual angle or setting. It could be a snowman TOP VIEW (like in the left photo below) … or a snowman inside a snow globe (like in the right photo).

You can make an applique for a snowman, which pierces a snowflake with his nose. Or a snowman-lord with a top hat and a red bow around his neck.

It is not necessary to put a bucket on the snowman. The snowman looks good in a neat black hat with a brim decorated with a sprig of holly.

The snowman on the postcard can be depicted in an extremely schematic way. A semicircle, a strip of a scarf, two beads of eyes and an orange triangle of the nose.

You can make a simplified silhouette of a snowman as a side part of a two-layer postcard as in the photo below.

And you can use the whole white background of the postcard as the body of a snowman. This principle is shown on the New Year’s cards with the photo below.

The most difficult thing is to make a volumetric 3D postcard with a silhouette of a snowman.

Part Four

DEER on Christmas cards.

Another New Year’s character that looks festive on New Year’s cards is a deer.

It can also be portrayed outside the box, but in an interesting situation. For example, it can be a reindeer singing Christmas songs with inspiration, playing a drum, or ice skating – everything is up to your imagination.

You can choose the simplest silhouette applique of ONLY DEER’S HEAD on postcards.

Or you can decorate a New Year’s card with the silhouette of a whole deer – from antlers to hooves.

Part Four

SNOWFLAKES on New Year’s cards.

You can cut 2 ordinary stars out of paper and fold them on top of each other with an offset of one ray – and we will get an elegant snowflake on a Christmas card with our own hands.

You can make a beautiful snowflake using the volumetric convex technique.

Or embroider a snowflake from threads. That is, apply a symmetrical pattern of punctures. And then, in a certain order, lace up these puncture holes with threads to make an openwork snowflake.

You don’t have to come up with very complex weaves.Even small patterns of thread and needles will decorate your New Year cards.

This threading technique can be used not only for snowflakes, but also for any other New Year’s motives.

And of course a snowflake using the quilling technique.

Here in the photo below we see the stages of creating a complex snowflake from ordinary quilling modules – you need to start each snowflake from the center – and grow petals to the middle – circle by circle.

Your New Year’s card with snowflakes can resemble a layer cake, in which a variety of details are mixed, layering and bumping into each other in an elegant chaos of beauty.

The snowflake on your card can be made of paper modules made using origami technique.

Part Five

Wreaths on New Year’s cards.

And here is the theme of festive Christmas wreaths. On a postcard, they can be depicted in any technique. It can be a flat appliqué of any geometric shapes, decorated with ribbons, buttons and other tinsel.

You can make a New Year’s card in the form of a door on which such a Christmas wreath hangs.

The quilling technique is also ideal for creating modules for a Christmas wreath.

New Year’s cards can be decorated with birds. They can sing winter songs while sitting on birch musical branches.

Also, New Year’s cards can represent a winter window through which you can see either a snowy landscape or a festive room with a Christmas tree.

And here are some more ideas for how to give money in a New Year’s card .We are used to investing money inside a postcard. But you can put the money outside, making it part of the overall New Year’s application. I will now explain how to place the money on the front side of the postcard and not spoil it with glue.

Here on the first postcard we see a bill that was folded in a triangular cone – a ribbon was glued to the postcard (not money, we do not spoil it with glue) and glued the ribbon so that it was glued to the glue in the middle, and its tails hung down freely.We put a cone of the Christmas tree-money on the ribbon – and we tie it, we tie it with the free ends of the ribbon.

In the second case we glue the snowman – but not just glue it – but on plump pieces of foam plastic stumps. That is, the snowman turns out to be towering on the postcard. Thus, the snowman’s neck turns out to be pushed away from the postcard canvas – and you can safely slip a bill rolled into a strip under his neck.

And in the third case, – we roll up candlesticks out of paper.We glue them with ribs to the postcard. And in each tube we put a banknote rolled into a narrow roll.

These are the original ideas for New Year’s cards I found for you during these holidays.

40 New Year’s cards that can be made in half an hour

In stores today you can find New Year cards for every taste. But the editors of Bright Side thinks that homemade ones are much cooler. When we do a thing with our own hands, we think about who it is intended for, and put our warmth and love into it.

Below we have collected ideas for beautiful, original and, most importantly, “quick” New Year’s cards, any of which will take no more than half an hour.

Santa Claus

This cute Santa Claus (or Santa Claus, as you like) is easy to do. The red hat and pink face are strips of paper pasted onto a card or gift bag. Fur hats and a beard are obtained like this: you need to take watercolor paper (it is loose, sold in stationery stores) and just tear off the strips of the desired shape to get uneven edges. Stick on the card over the red and pink stripes. And then draw two squiggles – a mouth and a nose – and two dots – eyes.

Christmas lights

Another simple idea is a Christmas tree garland. First you need to depict a cord, and bright lights are very easy to make using fingerprints. By the way, children will really like drawing such cards, and even kids can handle them.


You can add volume to this funny snowman by placing additional small circles of thick cardboard between the circles. And if there is double-sided tape, then cardboard is not needed.

Postcards with buttons

We bet every house has a dusty box with all sorts of different buttons. Get it out, they will finally come in handy: they will make elegant postcards. You can, for example, make a button snowman and Christmas tree decorations.

Colorful Christmas trees

Cute Christmas trees come from wallpaper scraps, colored paper, clippings from fashion magazines or special scrapbooking paper with prints.

Warm felt cards

Elegant cards are made from bright felt, which is sold in shops for handicrafts.

A little more Santa Claus

The applique in the form of Santa Claus or Santa Claus will look cool. We especially like the one on the left. For her, you need to cut a beard, mustache and glasses out of white paper and put them on a colored background using double-sided tape.

Volumetric snowflakes

The main trick here is to create a volume effect. To do this, glue the snowflakes onto small circles of Styrofoam or thick cardboard.

Funny Reindeer

Reindeer are very easy to make with your fingerprints.Just dip your finger in the paint and paint the rest. Children will be happy to participate.

Your photo

A family photo with bright New Year details will become a stylish card. You can draw this and make signatures in one of the many mobile applications for image processing. For example, here.

Own photo. Option 2

If you don’t feel like messing around with applications, you can just stick your photo on a piece of thick paper (or print it on a printer).


Cards with gifts are very easy to make from scraps of colored paper and ribbons.

Postcards with a potato print

This cute print is obtained by dipping half of a potato in ordinary gouache. And the rest will need to be painted on when the paint is dry. By the way, they are also very easy to make with children.

Teddy bear in a sweater

It is enough to cut out the shape of the bear, and then paint with a pen or felt-tip pen with the simplest patterns that we usually display when we talk on the phone.

Postcards from newspapers

Very stylish and very “fast” postcards can be made from old newspapers.

Spruce branch

The spirit (and aroma) of the New Year will convey a postcard with a real spruce branch. Buttons come in handy here too.

Black-red-white minimalism

To create these delightful cards, all you need is a black pen, red buttons and … a good pattern in front of your eyes.

Christmas balls

One of the main symbols of the New Year – Christmas balls – can be made of colored paper, fabric or felt.Cutting postcards will turn out spectacular: you need to cut out a circle on the front side, and draw patterns on the inside, glue a piece of fabric or paper.

Children’s cards with their own hands: children’s New Year’s cards

It is customary to give each other greeting cards for the New Year – this amazingly good tradition is firmly rooted in each of us. And it would not be very bad if our kids did not lose the habit of doing nice things to their relatives and friends.

In this article, the news portal “ ”has prepared for you and your children several easy master classes for making New Year’s cards with your own hands, which even the smallest children can handle.

DIY Christmas cards for children. creativity with kids

Details Lyudmila Nalivaikina Published on December 20, 2016

These New Year’s cards will be within the power of both a baby 1.5 years old and older children. The only difference will be in what degree of participation in the process of making the craft the mother will take.

For each of these cards, we used the simplest and favorite techniques for children: applique and bulk applique.Both the youngest children love both (they just love to sprinkle and sprinkle something) and those who have grown up.

1. Christmas card “Herringbone”

To make a card, you will need a base – a beautiful sheet of paper with a Christmas tree drawn on it:

You can download a special template for a card using the link at the end of this article, or draw a Christmas tree together with a child (children can participate in coloring the Christmas tree starting from 1.5 years old):

An ordinary blank for cards can be given a “special” New Year’s flavor if you decorate it around the perimeter with a loose applique (for “sprinkling” I used a multi-colored napkin by cutting it into small pieces).


The thicker the postcard paper, the better and more solid it will look. For example, for a postcard, you can use a sheet of paper from a sketchbook (it is thicker) or watercolor paper.

After the Christmas tree is ready, we make it three-dimensional. For the applique, you need green paper stripes.

Plain colored paper will not work with , since the stripes from it will be as follows (with white splashes):

It is better that the paper is double-sided (well, I used for this with an ordinary green napkin from the supermarket ).We fold the paper in several layers and cut neat small strips out of it:

Grease the Christmas tree with glue and sprinkle it with paper strips ( this will be a “loose” application – both kids and older children love it very much for their simplicity ):

Well, the Christmas tree is ready! It remains to dress it up with toys (applique):

If you wish, you can also decorate the inside of the card with beautiful confetti (I used a bright napkin cut into small pieces):

Paste a good wish inside:


2.Postcard for the New Year “Christmas ball”

  • For this postcard, you will also need a beautiful blank made of paper (you can print it from the file posted at the end of this article, or you can make it yourself):
  • To begin with, from a simple green napkin (or something similar) cut a spruce branch.
  • Use a traditional 4-fold napkin. Cut the blank for the spruce branch in the form of an elongated oval:
  • Fold the blank in half, use scissors to make oblique cuts that imitate spruce needles.

Unfold the napkin and be sure to fluff the “needles” with your fingers (if you don’t do this, the “twig” will turn out to be slightly shabby). So we got a spruce twig!

  • Now let’s move on to making a Christmas tree ball.
  • Cut a paper ball (regular circle). To make the ball look better, you can make it not white, but colored (I just painted it with paints):
  • Well, now – again a favorite pastime for kids and older children – grease the ball with glue and pour colored confetti on top (I cut colorful paper napkin, I already talked about this above):
  • The next step is to glue the composition on the blank for the postcard – a twig and a ball, draw a thread for the ball (you can “get confused” and string the ball on a real thread – it will be even more beautiful and realistic, but I decided to simplify everything).The postcard is ready!

    Tip : The younger the child, the less assiduous he is. Therefore, with the smallest kids, it makes sense to complete the craft in 2-3 approaches.

    Well that’s it! I wish you good luck and happy coming!

    Crafts with children: DIY Christmas and New Year cards

    Ten or fifteen years ago, almost all of us bought postcards to congratulate our loved ones on the holidays.Today, we are less and less treating this as something essential and valuable: it is easier for distant relatives to call, and to give a gift to loved ones, without “loading” with unnecessary waste paper.

    However, postcards made with children can become not just a greeting card, but also a decoration of the holiday for your loved ones. They can be hung on a Christmas tree, put on a shelf along with other New Year’s accessories. Here are some simple DIY postcard ideas.

    Herringbone made of threads

    • You will need:
    • cardboard;
    • threads for knitting;
    • beads;
    • hot glue;
    • letter-shaped pasta;
    • colored paper;
    • Artificial snow can.

    Make the base of the postcard of your choice out of cardboard (you can double or single, large or small).

    Cut a triangle out of another sheet of cardboard – this is the future Christmas tree, it should be slightly smaller than the postcard.

    Take a triangle and wind threads around it in any shape so as to hide the cardboard base of the Christmas tree. Threads can be solid (green is better) or multi-colored.

    Hot glue the finished Christmas tree to the base of the card.Make sure the threads don’t come loose. Glue beads on top – jewelry. Sprinkle with artificial snow.

    From pasta or other letters, fold the inscription of your congratulations. You can paint the letters in bright colors.

    Serpentine can be cut out of self-adhesive or plain colored paper using a hole punch.

    Applique “Snowman”

    A common applique will be interesting if done from different materials. We took felt and shiny self-adhesive paper.You can also use other materials: foil, velvet and corrugated paper, pieces of fabric of different textures.

    Otherwise, this craft does not differ from the usual application: plot details are cut out and glued. It is better to use PVA glue here.

    Postcard “Mittens”

  • You will need:
  • cardboard;
  • threads for knitting;
  • PVA glue;
  • sequins, confetti or colored paper;
  • gel pen.
  • On cardboard – the basis of the postcard – draw the contours of the mittens with a simple pencil. Then generously shade this pattern with PVA glue. It is desirable that the jar of glue has a sharp nose, then you can more accurately “draw” with it.

    Cut 15-25 pieces of about 5 cm from the thread. Connect them in a bundle so that the ends are flush. Then begin to finely chop them with scissors right above the glue-poured “mittens”.

    Thus, you need to cover the entire surface covered with glue.Correct the drawing with a sharp object – a toothpick, etc. Let the mittens dry and shake off excess lint.

    Make sure there are no bald spots – places where cardboard shows through.

    • Using a gel pen, draw a rope on the mittens and write your congratulations.
    • Glue sequins, confetti or colored paper parts.
    • Outline the card with PVA glue along the contour and glue on it a thread for knitting of a different color (or the color of mittens).

    In this way, you can make “knitted” patterns not only of mittens, but also other items: socks, hats, scarves, as well as decorate postcards, turning the details on them into fur, giving fluffiness to animals, snow, etc.p.

    Bead card

  • You will need:
  • cardboard;
  • PVA glue;
  • beads or seed beads;
  • green felt.
  • Draw two circles of different sizes on the cardboard – these are the future Christmas tree decorations. Shade them liberally with PVA glue. Pour in beads or seed beads carefully so that the circles keep their shape and do not leave empty spaces in them.

    Cut a spruce branch out of green felt and stick it on top.

    Make string pendants for the Christmas balls.

    Christmas tree made of magazine sheets

    A Christmas tree made of multi-colored magazine pages will look original if you stick it on colored cardboard (we took velvet paper). Just cut the magazine sheets of different widths and roll them into tubes, securing with PVA glue.

    When the tree is glued, place a star or other decoration on top. You can also stick the beads on the tree itself.

    Christmas tree made of tangerines

    Prepare a tangerine blank by cutting them into circles and drying them on a battery or in another way. Such a craft will be a good decoration for the kitchen.

    • You will need:
    • tangerines in circles;
    • hot glue or PVA;
    • cardboard;
    • flax, sesame, coriander seeds;
    • sugar or gelatin.
    • Glue circles of dried tangerines in the middle of the cardboard, creating a triangle.

    Then use PVA glue to outline them along the contour and draw the trunk. Sprinkle coriander and flaxseed over the area.

    Sprinkle sesame seeds over the tangerines. This can be done without glue. If the mugs are completely dry and the sesame seeds do not stick to them, run a wet finger over them, and then decorate with seeds and let dry.

    Draw snowflakes around the tree with PVA glue and sprinkle them with either sugar (they will be white) or gelatin (they will be tinted).

    You can make a loop on top of such a card so that it can be hung in the kitchen.

    Pasta tree

  • You will need:
  • pasta of any shape;
  • hot glue;
  • beads;
  • cardboard;
  • sequins;
  • colored paper;
  • gold paint.
  • Cut a Christmas tree out of cardboard. Glue pasta in the middle and cover it with gold paint. Then glue the beads on top of the pasta.

    Decorate the ends of the branches with sequins. Make a star out of colored paper.

    This postcard can also be hung on the tree, so the loop at the top would be useful.

    Volumetric tree

    • You will need:
    • cardboard;
    • Velvet paper or colored cardboard;
    • sequins, confetti, colored paper;
    • PVA glue
    • Fold the base of the card in half.
    • Also fold velvet paper or colored cardboard in half and cut out the tree.
    • Stick sequins, confetti or colored paper appliques on the tree.
    • Glue the tree by the ends of the branches in the middle of the card so that it becomes three-dimensional when opened.

    Bouquet with holly

  • As you know, holly is a symbol of Christmas, so it, like spruce, can be used in festive decorations.
  • You will need:
  • green paper;
  • hot glue;
  • Velvet paper;
  • toothpicks;
  • beads.
  • Take 30 toothpicks by fanning the ends together. Apply a generous amount of hot glue to the place on the velvet paper to which you will attach the bouquet.

    Quickly, until the glue has frozen, stick the “fan”, if necessary, grease with glue not only the base, but also on top of the toothpicks in the place where they are attached. It is important that all toothpicks are held tight.

    Then drip glue onto the hole in the bead and put it on a toothpick, creating a bouquet of your choice.

    Cut two holly leaves out of green paper and stick them at the base of the bouquet so that all the glue is hidden. Cut a bow out of paper of a different color and glue it to the holly.

    If you wish, you can make toothpicks of different lengths and then the bouquet will be more magnificent, because the beads in it will be at different levels.

    Quilling postcard

    • You will need:
    • cardboard;
    • colored paper;
    • PVA glue;
    • Pasta letters.

    Cut 4 long strips out of green paper and twist their ends with a tube: fold one to one side, the other to the other. Make several strips of colored paper, twist them also with a tube and glue the ends to make balls.

    Grease cardboard with PVA glue in those places where your ornament will be located, and glue twisted strips, creating a pattern.

    Decorate the card with glitter paper snowflakes. Cut the tape out of red paper and stick it at the bottom. Glue your congratulations from letters-pasta on a red ribbon.

    DIY New Year card

    DIY volumetric New Year cards

  • To create such bright and simple New Year cards, you will need double-sided thick black paper.
  • Cut out the compositions you like out of colored paper: Snowman, Christmas ball, Christmas tree or bell and glue to the base.
  • Paint additional elements with a snow-white marker.
  • DIY Christmas cards for children. Creativity with kids

    3 simple master classes on creating New Year’s cards with your own hands with kids 2-3 years old will help mothers organize preparations for the New Year together with the smallest family members. We also offer you to create cards “Herringbone”, “Snowman” and “Waltz of Snowflakes” with your young creators.

    Postcard “Herringbone”

    To create this postcard, you will need a pre-prepared Christmas tree stencil (it can be cut out of thick cardboard), several clothespins for securing the stencil, green gouache, a piece of foam rubber, sequins (or tinsel) and a blank for the postcard itself.

    We attach the stencil to the workpiece using clothespins.

    We give the child the foam rubber, put a jar of paint next to it and show what is required of him – to dip the foam rubber in the paint and “smack” it along the stencil. Drawing on stencils is precisely because it is suitable for the smallest, that it is given to them very simply – there is no need to make sure not to go beyond the boundaries, and almost no adult’s help is needed.

    Immediately after the paint is completely applied, you need to sprinkle the future Christmas tree with tinsel or decorate with sequins.No glue is needed for this – everything will be fixed on the freshly applied paint.

    We remove the stencil – the Christmas tree for children is ready!

    Postcard “Snowman”

    Prepare in advance 3 circles of paper of various diameters, gouache of black and orange colors, several cotton swabs, PVA glue, semolina and, of course, a blank for a card – this time in blue or blue.

    Lay out the circles on the workpiece so that you get a snowman and show the kid so that he understands what should happen in the end.Then give the child the opportunity to smear each of the circles with glue himself and glue it in the right place (the latter needs to be adjusted, but it is not necessary to control the child’s hand – often it is enough to just point with your finger to the place where you need to glue the circle).

    It remains to draw the snowman’s eyes, nose and buttons using paint and cotton swabs. Let the baby dip the sticks into the paint himself and also apply the eye dots and buttons himself, pointing in the right place.The nose and mouth will have to be done together, since this is still a more difficult task for such a baby.

    The snowman is ready, but you can animate the picture a little and add “snow”. An excellent material for creating snow on children’s New Year’s cards is an ordinary decoy. Let the baby apply dots of PVA glue with a cotton swab to the area around the snowman, and then immediately sprinkle these areas with plenty of semolina.

    It remains to shake off excess cereals by placing the postcard on the table. Our postcard is ready!

    Postcard “Waltz of Snowflakes”

    After making the previous postcard, I decided to make a very simple, but cute version, using only PVA glue and semolina.This postcard is the easiest and fastest to make, perhaps even one-year-old kids are capable of such a creative feat – do not deprive them and yourself of such pleasure!

    So, on the basis for the postcard, mom should apply snowflakes from glue. Of course, a child can also do this, but since babies act slowly, and the glue dries out quickly enough, it is preferable to entrust the work with glue to the mother in this case. So, we apply snowflakes with the help of glue and a brush:

    Then we immediately give the card to the kid armed with semolina – and let him completely fill up her card.It is fun and interesting for the child, in addition, such manipulations have a beneficial effect on the development of fine motor skills of the hands.

    Shake off the extra “snow”, as we did last time. Children’s New Year’s card “Waltz of Snowflakes” is ready. If you want to keep it for a long time, you can varnish the snowflakes – but this already without the help of the baby.

  • These are the cards we got:

    I want to show cards for the New Year, which have passed the test of time, so to speak. About 15 years, or even more, ago, there were no fashionable scrap sets, hole punches and other devices and materials for paper.There were handmade templates and stencils made of cardboard. And there were children with whom, as now, I wanted to do something beautiful for the holiday.

    The age of the children with whom I have made and am making these cards are 1-4 grades. These postcards are good because the materials are minimal. They have sizes from A4 folded in half to A5 folded in half. That is, the postcards are double.
    The first card “Snowman” – for children of 1-2 grades.

    The main thing here is to correctly observe the assembly of the snowman: Body – arms – ends of the scarf – then a piece of scarf that covers the neck and the hat.

    I give all the drawings for postcards at the end – maybe someone will come in handy.

    Here you can see that they are double. Children write congratulations inside.

    Children really like this card because you can hang the balls on the branches by yourself. A thin thread is glued into the balls, and the branches are glued to the postcard only in the corner.

    And in order for them to be sturdier, we glue the green blank of ordinary colored paper onto a white landscape paper and cut it out so that a white “snow” edge remains, and then finely cut the edges of the branch.

    Snowflakes are drawn with a white gel pen.

    On the table.

    My favorite is New Year’s Eve. I love window postcards very much, I have a whole series of them. I will expose the spring one by March 8th. This should be done with older guys, when they can already cut the inner holes well.


    Part with a New Year’s bouquet.

    Santa Claus is either an invitation or a postcard. Mine wrote a letter to Santa Claus on it. It can be done both small and large – now the technique can do everything.

    Together with another rarity – both 20 years ago. Vytashila, figured that you can still show, not so ugly.

    Postcard schemes on one half and parts of postcards on the other. Why schemas? And before it was not possible to pass the postcard you liked through the printer and look at it to make your own, so they made diagrams so that others would understand. This download is A4 format.

    Following diagrams and details.

    Scheme in size A5, or half of a regular sheet.

    I specially uploaded a kind of enlarged version of the postcard – it can be printed on A4, but there will be only the front part of the postcard, the back part will have to be glued. The templates for spruce branches and a house will be printed in the same format.

    We make a Christmas tree. You will need to take a green cardboard and fold it in half and then cut it. Bend the “accordion” out of one half. Determine the width of the “step” yourself. We recommend at least one centimeter and no more than three. Grab one end of the “accordion” with a stapler, you can put two staples for reliability.

    Now we will arrange the stump. To do this, you need to cut out a simple rectangle from wrapping paper or candy wrappers. If you use the latter, then do not forget to first iron it with an iron through a simple sheet of paper. This will help straighten the wrapper.

    DIY Christmas card for children

This applies to the location of the top of the tree and the tree itself. After you conditionally placed the Christmas tree on the half of the postcard.Carefully cut through the top of the tree. If you have a shaped hole punch, then this task will not take much of your time. Well, if there is no hole punch, then first draw a star, then carefully cut it out with a clerical knife. By the way, before starting work, it is better to update the tip of the blade.

    After you have finished with the star. Take a thread with a needle and, focusing on your marks, start making stitches. Remember to string enough sequins onto the string after piercing the paper.It is not advisable to pull the thread tightly and it is also not desirable for it to sag.

    Now you need to make notes through the cut out hole of the sprocket. So that its location can be seen inside the postcard. Use a sticker in the shape of an asterisk and any other, not necessarily exactly this shape, as long as it is not clear what kind of sticker it is when the postcard is closed.

    A shining surface or something similar was simply visible through the hole of the star.

    That’s all. Write something good inside and donate boldly!

    Idea # 5. Postcard with a Christmas tree in origami technique.

At the mention of this technique, complex constructions and intricate schemes immediately pop up in memory. But don’t worry, the tree below is not aerobatics. You will definitely cope with it.

    So, what do you need to create a postcard with a Christmas tree using origami technique:
    1.Colored thick paper, but not cardboard.
    2. Colored cardboard.
    3. Double-sided tape and / or PVA glue.
    4. Elements for decoration, at your discretion.

    Postcards for children for the new year, simple MK

    Let’s start with the base of the postcard. Gently bend a sheet of multi-colored A4 cardboard (you can also use another one) in half.

    Tip: keep in mind that some cardboard sheets have a tendency to crack when folded. This greatly affects the aesthetics of the postcard itself.If you have trouble running into such cardboard, then the bend can be decorated with curly cut out colored paper or tape, or even braid.

    So now we need to fold about three origami modules. More or fewer modules can be made depending on the original size. Accordingly, the herringbone will be larger or smaller.
    Let’s start from an example. Take three squares of heavyweight or scrapbooking paper. You can print any image you want on thick paper.The sides of the square, as we said above, can affect the size of the tree. In our case, 20 centimeters. The square needs to be folded diagonally, then expanded and bent again diagonally, crosswise.

    You have conditionally marked four triangles, now you need to fill in two opposite to each other. Now press the resulting triangle to any surface and mark for yourself the conditional center of the figure, bend the bottom corner parallel to the marked middle. Repeat the procedure with the second corner.The module is ready. Add two more. You can take a different color paper.

    Let’s start assembling the Christmas tree. Glue the origami module onto the base of the postcard. You can use glue or tape. The formation of the Christmas tree should be done from top to bottom, as if nesting the next module into the previous one.

    The next step is to fill in the details of your postcard. Choose how and what to decorate yourself. As an example, we offer bows and buttons.

    Idea # 6. Postcard with ribbon herringbone

    This idea is also minimalist.And it is not too complex a design. If you are looking for ideas for working with children, then this idea is perfect for you.

    So, what do you need to create a postcard with a ribbon herringbone:

    1. Thick colored cardboard or paper. A4 format will suffice.
    2. Scissors.
    3. Double-sided tape and / or PVA glue.
    4. Elements for decoration, at your discretion.
    5. Decorative ribbons, scrap paper or clippings from bright pages of prints.
    6. Stickers. In this version, it is important to take stickers in the form of stars.

    Let’s start making a simple postcard

    We will start, respectively, with the preparation of the base. To do this, bend a sheet of cardboard in half. Among the prepared materials, look for paper or tape in color that is closest to brown. We will decorate the trunk of the Christmas tree. The ideal option would be to cut a highly elongated trapezoid from brown paper. On one of the halves of the base, glue the trunk of the Christmas tree.Try to place it exclusively in the middle of the sheet.

    After you have completed work with the trunk, you need to pay attention to the crown of the tree. Namely, cutting the prepared material into strips. Each next strip should be longer or, respectively, shorter than the previous one. It is better not to change the width. We suggest cutting strips of about 1.5-2 centimeters.

    Now that you have visually represented how many strips you need, you need to cut the corners of the cut ribbons at an angle of about 45 degrees.So that, in general, the tapes, already placed in their proper places, represent a triangle with a strongly pointed apex. It is better to do this not for each tape separately, but for all at once, with one, so to speak, notch.
    Now you need to glue the tapes in the space provided for them. The ribbons should overlap the trunk. The process is most conveniently done from the bottom up.

    At the very top of your Christmas tree, glue the star-shaped sticker. On this we can consider the work on this postcard finished.But you can add details with decorative elements. This is for your taste.

    Idea # 7. Christmas card with original Christmas tree

    And one more idea for inspiration for the New Year’s variation. The idea is also not distinguished by the multistep and high cost of materials. And at the exit there is an original and cute decoration for a New Year’s card. If you take pastel shades, or as makeup artists like to say, nude shades, then the postcard will have a rather bright feminine character. Such a card would be an appropriate addition to a present for a woman of middle age and older.

    So, what do you need to create a greeting card with an original Christmas tree:

    1. Thick colored cardboard or paper. A4 format will suffice.
    2. Scissors.
    3. Double-sided tape and / or PVA glue.
    4. Elements for decoration, at your discretion.
    5. Round napkins or double-sided colored paper.

    Original postcard with a Christmas tree with your own hands

    The first thing we do is smooth the cardboard across.Now the main part of the postcard is ready.

    Now we make a Christmas tree. To this end, you need to take a double-sided napkin in the shape of a circle and divide it exactly in half. In the future, you only need one piece to create one Christmas tree. Well, if you could not find suitable napkins, then you can make paper for this purpose yourself. The main thing is to decide what size your Christmas tree appears to you.

    Since it must be borne in mind that the average printer is able to print any picture only on A4 format.Accordingly, based on this, it is necessary to calculate the size of the living tree. Alternatively, you can use heavy double-sided paper.
    In favor of the option with a printout: if you print only a semicircle, the size of the tree will increase to 20-25 centimeters.

    So, you have decided on the paper and there is a semicircle in front of you. In order to fold the Christmas tree, you need to do a fairly simple operation. Along the straight edge of the semicircle, step back about 3-5 centimeters and make an inconspicuous mark for yourself.This is where the top of your tree will be. Now “accordion” smooth the paper. The step width is approximately five centimeters. Experiment with this. You may be satisfied with other options.

    It makes sense to fix the resulting folds so that the Christmas tree does not strive to free itself like a spring. This can be easily done with double-sided tape. When your hand becomes more confident in folding the accordion, you can pre-fix the tape on a semicircle of paper.

    Now you need to glue the Christmas tree on one of the halves of the poor postcard.This can be done with tape or glue.
    If you wish, add details to the card, decorate the Christmas tree with decorative elements.

    Idea № 8. New Year’s cards with 3D effect

    We are all familiar with children’s books since childhood. Who, not yet knowing about it, were the founders of the modern ultra-fashionable 3D. Turning over the next sheet, we met with foxes, wolves or Koloboks, who as if alive rose above the book pages. Agree, then for us it was almost magic.We have grown up, and now we can try on the mantle of a wizard simply by making voluminous cards for the New Year.

    Let’s start making 3D postcards for the New Year

    You need to cut out several triangles from colored cardboard, for this purpose take curly scissors.In the future, these triangles will become tree crowns. You don’t have to make them the same, you can experiment with the sizes.

    Now let’s get down to preparing the base of the postcard. For this purpose, you need to take two sheets of cardboard and paper. The cardboard will act as the backing, and the paper will be the inner thread of the card. And bend them in half

    A sheet of paper that will play the role of an inner liner must first be outlined, and then using a clerical knife or scissors to make cuts.The marks are applied perpendicular to the fold of the paper and are something like steps, namely stumps for poor Christmas trees.

    The Christmas tree crowns prepared in advance must now be glued into place. To do this, open the inner insert of the postcard, you should get something like steps, so stick the Christmas trees on them. Have you already understood the principle of the postcard?

    Now you need to glue the inner insert of the card in the folded sheet of cardboard.

    Christmas tree cards glued to the inside can be decorated with flat decorations made of the same paper.

    That’s all. Postcard with 3D effect is ready.

    Idea number 9. New Year’s dynamic card

    We invite you to familiarize yourself with the idea for creating a very original greeting and not only New Year’s card. But still, it will look like the sheets folded in half familiar to us. Although, here is a completely different principle. But the addressee will definitely like it.

    2. Scissors.

    5. Sufficiently thick thread.

    Let’s start making a dynamic postcard

    On a standard A4 sheet of paper, draw a circle using a compass. Then cut it out. Now fold the resulting circle in half and use scissors to make cuts that are alternately arranged and reflect the contours of the circle. As the distance from the center increases, the incisions should become longer.

    After that you need to straighten the circle. Glue the thread to the center of the circle. To make the product more interesting. The thread is passed through the top and circles made of cardboard, contrasting in color, are glued to it. The thread is positioned so that the glued circles are located under the base of the circle. Now, if you pull the string, the structure will turn into an unusual garland shaped like a herringbone. And inside, bright circles will playfully be seen.

    Now you need to glue the Christmas tree after returning it to the folded state.While gluing, make sure that you do not glue too much, and the Christmas tree has the ability to creep out. The base to which you will glue your dynamic Christmas tree can be made of folded cardboard.

    That’s basically all. You have got an unusual and dynamic postcard, it remains to write congratulations and present.

    Idea # 10. New Year’s cards, decorated with double-sided tape with a backing

    Then we will prepare the elements for decoration.Using a shaped hole punch, cut out a lot of colored cardboard circles from colored paper. It is desirable that the size be different. Well, if a hole punch was not found on the farm, you can simply cut everything out with scissors. True, it will take more time, but we are not looking for easy ways? It is better to take paper that is hard and different in color. The ideal option would be to use colors that differ in several tones, but within the same shade. You can take paper that simulates a mirror surface and add it as an add-on.

    Now you need to take the prepared base of the postcard and stick an adhesive tape on it. By creating a semblance of a circle on the sheet. Then remove the protective layer from the pads of the tape and glue the multi-colored circles. Repeat this procedure as you add more layers. Try to alternate mugs of different sizes. The number of layers is yours. Add them until you get the desired result. Then just tie a colorful ribbon with a bow and glue it at the top, making the circles glued in layers into a kind of wreath.

    Option 2. A fairly minimalistic option. Good for men or guys. You will need a prepared base of the postcard, on which you stick a piece of tape, and on it a square of plain cardboard. Determine the size yourself. At the top of the cardboard square, place a slightly variegated ribbon bow. You get a kind of stylization of the image of a gift.

    Option 3. Cut out several rectangles of various shapes from colored cardboard. They need to be wrapped with thread in the manner of wrapping gifts with ribbon and leave a bow on top.Then stick the postcards in a row on the double-sided cattle along the lower edge of the blank. You can succinctly add “Happy New Year!”
