Creative Christmas Card Envelopes!

I love sending mail! My favorite part is addressing and decorating the envelopes! Just ask my family and friends… I tend to go overboard!

So, naturally, Christmas time is another opportunity for me to flex my creative fingers. Here’s a special holiday touch I added to the back of our Christmas card envelopes this year:

Our own little fingerprint reindeer! It’s quick, beautiful, and the best part is, it’s easy and cost next to nothing to do! All you need are your envelopes, a brown ink pad, and a red, black and brown marker.

Let’s get started!

Step One:  Print or write your family names on the back of your envelope (I printed ours just above the flap).

Step Two:  Roll your fingertip onto a brown ink pad, then press firmly above your name.

Step Three:  Using a red marker (I used an Ultra Fine Point Permanent Marker), draw a red nose onto your reindeer.

Step Four:  Using a black marker (again, I used an Ultra Fine Point Permanent Marker) draw two eyes onto each reindeer.

Step Five:  Using your brown marker, draw antlers on each reindeer in your family.

And that’s it! Now your Christmas card envelopes have a unique touch, sure to bring a smile to your family and friends faces!
