Christmas Cards - A Novel Idea!

What a lovely treat it is to get home and sit down with a cuppa and all the lovely Christmas cards you have received that day!

Here at Tomas & Jones HQ we've decided that's a pleasure our Book Club buddies would relish so we've made some lovely cards to quickly send off to them before the big day!  Of course, naturally the cards tend towards a literary could we resist?

Let's open up and have a look...

And turn over for a special Christmas message...

If you'd like to make some cards like this here is what you'll need:
  • Sewing Machine & Thread
  • Small Old Novel (12.5cm x 18.5cm)
  • Recycled paper for Card (12.5cm x 18.5) or slightly larger
  • Recycled paper for Envelope
  • Printer
  • Templates

1.  Merry Christmas with Baubles Print

Print the Merry Christmas print onto a page from your Old Novel.  Once you have printed your post card onto some recycled paper (or some other paper of your choice - remembering to use the right dimensions shown above) sew the two pieces together.  Now write your message!

We used recycled paper and cut it to size, but you can use any paper you like.  

Dimensions to match card:  33.5cm x 21.5cm.

Et Voila!  It's not too late to get a few special cards out.  

We hope you can make use of the templates, or if not, the idea.  Everyone loves a special handmade card!

Have a great week and lead up to Christmas...
