Holiday Idea: #GlueNGlitter Homemade Holiday Cards

I had a challenge to make a holiday card using an Elmers Craftbond product. I decided it would be a fun Saturday for the family to make Christmas cards together. We had some special people in our lives I thought would love a homemade Christmas card from my kids. We have a widow that lives across the street that my kids visit everyday to take her the mail. She has a difficult time getting around, so we thought she would be the perfect person we would start with to make a card for and we knew she would LOVE it!

So we headed to Walmart to get our supplies.

We bought several things that would make fun cards:

*Elmer’s Craft Bond Glue Pen (wow, do we LOVE this, it is so easy to us and works great)

*Elmers Painter Markers

*Elmers Sparkle Glitter Glue

*Cardstock in solid colors (wanted to make sure we had green and red in there)

*regular glitter

*holiday decal stickers

This is what we came home with for our product.

We put on some Christmas music and all sat at the table together; we had a very nice family time making cards.

We started by everyone picking the cardstock of their choice and cutting it down to card size 8×12 with a scrapbook trimmer (you can make them smaller or larger)

We then bent them in half, some picked horizontal and some vertical.

Then we let the kids just get creative and make any designs they wanted. We used the Elmers Craft Bond Glue for gluing paper to cardstock and to add glitter to our pictures. We also added some pictures on some and used Elmers Painting Markers to write our messages.

On several cards we wrote words with the Elmers Craft Bond Glue and then poured glitter over it. Then we poured excess that didn’t stick to the glue in a bowl. It left us with beautiful words in pretty glitter.

My husband even made me a card, I love it-he is so creative!

This is the finished products:

    We save all our Christmas cards and then a few weeks before the Christmas the following year we make present tags from the old cards adding sparkling glitter. It great fun but also teaching my kids that recycling is not only good but also rewarding.
