Monday Made: More Christmas cards

Junior J has more or less recovered (I wish I could say the same for his brother!), and we managed to make some Christmas cards the other day. I found these little stick-on felt trees at a sale, and thought we could use them in our cards. So we got down to tearing strips of white paper (as "snow")...

... and he had quite a bit of fun crumpling them up (for texture):

Then he stuck on trees on the snow...

We punched out stars using a Daiso paper punch and added light rays with a white colour pencil (he described it as "turning on the star", and insisted on turning each one on, once he stuck the star down!). Then I helped him to cut out a little house for each card which he then pasted down, to represent the place Jesus was born.

Simple, and quick yes? If you need more ideas, here's two more that we made (over here and here). 

Linking up with:


  1. Thank you for linking up! Such cute felt trees you have! Simple yet pretty! :)

    1. The boy liked the trees very much, and it was so convenient cos they had adhesive on them already! :) Thanks for all the inspiration you've been posting for Advent!

  2. Wow the trees are ready made stick ons? So cool!
