Style Stories | DIY New Year’s Cards

Whether you’re sending post-Christmas thank you cards  or New Year’s cards to celebrate 2013, it’s always more fun to make them yourself. You’ll need: glitter, glue, foam brushes & spouncers, thick paper, and scissors.

Start by folding the paper in half to create your card shape. If tearing from a ringed pad, trim the edge and use it as a stencil for your glitter motif:

-Paint the glue over your stencil with a foam brush.

-Remove the stencil.

-Sprinkle glitter over the glue.

-Shake the card clean.

Or, create circle-themed cards:

-Dip the spouncer into your glue bottle cap.

-Dot the glue onto your paper in a cute pattern. Try classic circles and whimsical snail shapes, too.

-Sprinkle glitter over the glue. Mix colors to create a pretty ombre effect.

-Shake the card clean.
