DIY Christmas Cards for the Holiday Season

DIY Christmas Cards for the Holiday Season

With the holiday season right around the corner, what better way to spread love and cheer than with DIY Christmas cards? This year, rather than picking up generic holiday greeting cards at the store, get crafty with your PIXMA printer and our fun DIY Christmas card ideas. The opportunities to personalize your message are endless. Here are five DIY Christmas cards to kickstart your imagination.

Christmas cards for kids.

Making DIY Christmas cards is a great way to spend a cold and cozy winter afternoon with your kids. Use your PIXMA to print out a seasonal design and encourage them to adorn it with doodles. Or, download a free coloring book page and set your kids loose with crayons, markers, colored pencils or paint. After they've filled pages with Christmas character, glue their creations to a gift box or gift bag. Add a personal note and mail it off!

Family photo Christmas Cards

Print your own simple-yet-elegant homemade holiday cards using your PIXMA printer. “Good tidings of comfort and joy” is a peaceful message that could resonate with anyone. Print it onto cardstock, fold it over and add a holiday greeting message inside. For an extra touch of home, snap a family photo on your IVY and stick it on the front of the card. If you have some time on your hands, photograph each family member in a holiday sweater and print them out on your IVY . Stick them all to a piece of string to create a garland of family faces!

Instagram holiday greeting cards.

Why not use what you already have to create DIY Christmas cards this year? Christmas is a time for reflecting, and what better way to reflect than to set aside some time to wade through 2019’s Instagram feed and create a DIY Instacard with top Insta moments. Choose a photo — abstract or with friends and family — print it out on your IVY and then get crafting!

There is no right or wrong way to create DIY Christmas cards. What matters is that you have fun creating them. Whether you take inspiration from our DIY Christmas card ideas or elsewhere, be sure to let your loved ones know that you care. Happy holidays!
