It’s always a pleasure to receive a homemade card and it’s something great to do as a family. Get the kids to help you think of the designs. If you’re all a fan of snowmen, all you need is some cotton wool and a bit of felt to add on facial features, and maybe a piece of string to craft a scarf.

Father Christmas is always a popular choice for making your own Christmas cards. The cotton wool will come in handy for his beard and tissue paper is a great material to work with. Create a fairy princess with a tissue-paper dress and add some sparkle with some glitter for her magic wand.
