Candy Cane Card | Festive Fun

How to make your own Christmas cards

This sweet idea is great for making a thank you card for kindy or school teachers, or a Christmas card for family and friends.

Step 1.

Organise all of your materials.

What you will need:

  • Coloured Cardboard/Posterboard
  • Patterned paper or Christmas gift wrap
  • Cute photo of your brisbane kid
  • Craft glue
  • Scissors
  • Foam Christmas shapes/stickers/glitter

Step 2.

If making a card, fold a piece of cardboard in half to form the base.

Step 3.

Cut photo into the shape of a heart, using the candy canes as a template.

Step 4.

Glue the heart shape onto cardboard with craft glue.

Step 5.

Glue the candy canes to the card to frame the photo.

Step 6.

Decorate your card with foam shapes, glitter, stickers etc. and allow to dry.


This idea also works well as a gift tag. It would be very cute in a frame (without the candy canes) as a gift for grandparents.
