Today is an idea post. Idea is this – make Christmas cards yourself this year. Put on some Christmas music, knit some tiny accessories and attach onto folded paper.
Add some glitter. Write your Christmas wishes. You can even put something sweet inside of the tiny knitted embellishment.
My cards are little empty though. I wanted to add something on top of the cards (like “Warm holidays” or “Merry Christmas” etc), but my daughter announced that she wanted these cards for herself and she will be decorating those… ah, what can I do – I’m a sucker for my kids (don’t tell them that, otherwise my life would be pure hell).
Anyways, I’ll show you my cards and give some links for the patterns.
Card with Christmas stocking
I didn’t use any pattern – I just knitted a sock like usually, only with 16 stitches total (alternating colors). Then I made 2 holes into the card and attached the stocking with red yarn (so that there is a bow inside of the card).
Newborn socks from bunny mama’s corner (use finer yarn and it will do)

Card with little Elf bag
So, what more to put on a Christmas card…
and so on (I ran out of ideas here but you get the picture…)
What do you think? Is this something you may want to do or are you more of a purchased card person?
