We love homemade cards for Christmas! Sometimes however you have a LOT of people to make – e.g. for all your classroom friends or for extended family. So we have created a Super Simple Christmas Card Design series. Quick and easy Christmas Cards to make in bulk. Today’s design, is a super simple bauble Christmas card design. So cute (and of course easy!).
Check out yesterday’s Christmas Gift Card Design.
Super Simple Bauble Card – Materials
- green cards (either pre folded A6 cards, or cut down green card to the size you want.. an A4 sheet of green card, can make two cards for you)
- red, yellow and black paper
- glue stick
These are just the colours and designs that I used. You can use ANY colours and make any type of bauble. Or you can even print some “bauble coloring pages” off and stick those on. Totally up to you! Check out our varition ideas here too…
Bauble Card Variations
Use children’s art to make the baubles – I have some kids’ art bauble cards here. Perfect Christmas Cards for Preschoolers!
Use family photos to make your baubles!
How to make a Simple Bauble Card Tutorial
Once again this Christmas Card Design series is a VIDEO tutorial series.. but I have added some short step by step descriptions for you below!
New Easy Paper Projects for Kids Book
In the video I mention my new Paper Projects Book – the designed shared here today, works really well for our little DIY gift bags shared inside this book!
Step by Step Easy Bauble Card Design instructions:
As mentioned, we used some prefolded A6 cards in green. But you can make your own card and also make these cards in ANY size or shape (e.g. a square Bauble Card would look fabulous too). If you have “standard” card, you can simply fold it in half to make a greeting card base.
Your Bauble Card accessories
To make these Santa Bauble Cards you will need to cut out:
- two circles of different sizes
- two black strips – with a small square cut off
- two yellow squares a little larger than the black strips
As mentioned you design your own baubles as you wish!
Assembling your super simple Santa Bauble Christmas card design
Glue a black strip to the centre of one bauble. Add the yellow square and then the black square. Trim off the edges.
Repeat for the second bauble.
Glue onto the card.
Add hanging threads with a pen!
FINISHED. That took less than 5 min to make. If making in bulk, you can get these made even quicker! Or if you simplyfy the bauble they will be quicker to make too!
