One of my very favorite parts of Christmas is sending and receiving Christmas cards in the mail. I run to the mailbox each afternoon. (Anyone with me?!) To make your holiday mail even more thrilling, I’ve compiled 11 fun and unique ways to address Christmas cards this year. Don’t worry, calligraphy isn’t required.
What you’ll need:
- Your Christmas cards & envelopes
- Sharpie fine point pen
- Silver metallic paint pen and/or gold metallic paint pen
And now to the fun part! Choose your favorite holiday cards and address away because the holidays will be here in the blink of an eye.
11 Ways to Address Christmas Cards:
1. THE GIFT TAG
First, write out the address. Then use the silver pen to write “To:”. Next, draw a holiday tag around the address and a swirl for the ribbon. Lastly, use the gold pen and draw slightly offset of the silver tag and ribbon to create a shadow. Using both gold and silver pens really makes the tag pop.!
2. SIMPLE CAPS GEOMETRIC
3. CURSIVE WRITE LINE
4. BUNTING DOTS
First, address the card in cursive with the family name and address using a black sharpie. Then on the left side draw a curved line from the top of the card to the left side of the card. Decide on how many letters (your holiday word, greeting) you would like your banner to spell and draw triangles for each letter with the flat side touching the curved swoop. Lastly, write each letter in the middle of each triangle. Decorate with silver metallic circles to look like snow and you are done!
This idea is cute and fun all year round. I’m a sucker for lettered bunting!
