I made some Christmas cards this week. Not because of my love of crafting (I only own kitchen scissors) but because of my slight obsession with stationary.
I found the idea on Pinterest (twist!) and then begged my sister-in-law Zoe to help me.
She agreed, but only if I took some pictures of her kids. Too bad it was windy, cold, and all of them turned out like this (or worse):
But she agreed to help me anyway, and when all the kids were down for a nap–we began.
Two hours later and I only had five cards, proof that I am craft-challenged. At one point Zoe said, ever so sweetly, “Maybe crafting just isn’t your gift. You’re creative in other ways…”
A nice way of saying girl, you’re done.
So I made five cards which means I will probably just keep them for myself because I am a hoarder.
I’m not going to write out the instructions on how to make these cards because I don’t want to insult your intelligence. The pictures explain it all. And even if they don’t, I’m probably not the best one to ask. I had to have help with the scissors (note the very terrible circles at the end).
