Christmas cards are an exciting part of the holiday season, and receiving handmade Christmas cards make the occasion even better. Knowing the sender has put a warm touch on wishing you a happy holiday makes the gesture extra-special.
Your family can send handmade Christmas cards this year; it's simple when you have found a few Christmas card ideas. This idea doubles as a candy cane reindeer craft as well as a card. It is simple to make, especially with supplies you may have laying around your home. Using mini candy canes and scrapbook paper, you will be able to craft this card up quickly using these step by step instructions, with room to vary your design.
Another great variation of this Christmas card idea is to use it as a place holder for dinner guest and party attendees. Take a 3"x1" piece of paper matching your card and write the name of your guest, then place that piece of paper behind the mini candy canes. These can sit up against a glass or be set on a dinner plate for a festive jolt of fun to any place setting!
