Blythe On A Budget: DIY Holiday Cards

This week is a simple little DIY project for you: making Christmas (or any other holiday) cards for your dolls!

What you’ll need is:

  • Cardstock or paper in any colour – you can most certainly use scrap pieces and I encourage it!
  • Pens – thin ones in multiple colours
  • Little holiday-stickers
  • White-out/correction pens
  • Scissors
  • Ruler (optional!)

10124566 So I found these scrap pieces of coloured paper that were mostly square to begin with, I’m going to pretend that they are. I folded over the edge until I had a size of a card that I liked (one half of the card is 1.5″ x 1″ – so unfolded the card is 3″ x 1″). You can cut out as many or as little of these as you liked – I decided to cut out 7 of these so I would have 1 card per doll.

I like to use my ruler to make sure I get a really good crease on the fold so it doesn’t look like a wimpy fold (is there such thing as a wimpy fold?). Once you’ve got a good fold into the cardstock, you can go ahead and decorate the front however you want.

You can choose to write something on the inside (or not), it’s entirely up to you. Depending on if you like to decorate forĀ  your dolls so they can celebrate the holidays as well, you could put up a string and hang a bunch of the cards up, like so:


Isn’t that pretty nifty?

If you decide to make some holiday cards for your dolls, be sure to share them here!

    These are cute! I like how you have them on a string, I think that’d be really cute in any doll house!

    I think last week’s tutorial was a lot better. I mean, really?????? A tutorial on how to make a paper card?? How stupid do you think we all are? I’m sorry I even clicked onto your site today.

    Trinity, don’t be snotty. Some people aren’t crafty *at all* and seriously wouldn’t think this up by themselves. There is no need to be negative. Michelle does this site in her free time and since she’s nice enough not to have ads, doesn’t make any money. If you don’t like her content, make your own damn site.

    I mean, really?????? I’m sorry I even looked at your comment today. How lame does that make me look?

    Trinity is just a font of Christmas kindness and spirit, isn’t she? Let’s all give her a hand!

    Oh, no, wait…she’s just someone who leaves negative, nasty comments on someone’s blog for no real reason. Don’t like it? There’s a whole lot of internet to go look at instead. There’s no reason to be rude about it.
