Cheap Christmas Cards Part 2

I got my Christmas Cards in the mail today and couldn't wait to get them together.  Since I ordered the 4x6 I wanted to make them a little larger so I attached them to a 5x7 piece of craft paper. I found some cute envelopes for 50% off.

I've been trying to learn calligraphy also so that I could address my Christmas cards prettier and typed labels are kind of boring to me.  I think an addressed envelope is a lot more personal!

To seal the deal (no pun intended) I bought some scrap book stickers {which were also 50% off} at the local hobby store.  I thought this would add a cute little personal touch!

My final bill for 75 Christmas cards:

4x6 prints (60% off on snapfish)                 $6.50                  
craft paper (50% off at Hobby Lobby)        $2.50
envelopes (40% off coupon at HL)             $4.00
2 - scrapbook stickers (50% off)                $2.00
                                                Total:          $15.00


  1. I love that you blogged about this! Your Instagram post inspired me to make my own this year too. I printed some trial ones yesterday at Target just to make sure they look good before I print a ton of them. These are so pretty!

  2. Yeah you can play with about any pictures that you have taken and add just about anything that you want to. I like that I can customize it how ever I want to and I'm not limited to what the different companies have to choose from. That way if you didn't want all the same card you could even print 5 or 6 different pictures and give different ones to different family members.
