Hi girls

Wondering if anyone can help me I want to make xmas c ards and put a photo of my 5 month Abby on the front.
Does anyone no where you can buy little buba santa hats from and the cards where you can put the photos in.I went and had some photos done in Myers with Abby sitting on Santa and was not very impressed with the photographer.Abby is one of those babies who will smile when suits her and no one else and when we actually got her to smile do you think the women got the picture.Needless to say i was not happy and have decided to make my own as well.Anyway you probably  werent interested in that but i thought i would tell you anyway just having a winge.

Cheers Peta

Hi Peta,

I can't help with the photo cards specifically, but try a camera store.  They have have what you are looking for, or even be able to lead you in the right direction.

I got a little santa hat for Breanna from the $2 shop.  Its red with little silver sequin type things on it with quite a fluffy band.  I thought it was really cute.  

Hope you find what you are looking for.

Hi Peta,

I saw some photo Christmas Cards in my local K Mart the other day for $1 each. They were on display on the desk at the photo processing lab.

I had trouble finding a santa hat to fit my DS, so I bought some reindeer antlers which fit better. We used the santa hat to put over his shirt as he had dribbled and in the end we were very happy with the result.

Hi Peta

Photo cards are very easy to make yourself...

Just head to your closest Spotlight, Lincraft or Art Riot or scrapbooking store and pick up

1. nice cardstock (just cut to size and fold)

2. Cardstock in a different colour cut just slightly bigger than your photos to matt your photos

3. Photo tabs or Photo corners to stick the photo down.  

4. If you want the receiver to be able to remove the photo to frame or slip in an album, then just cut some small slits in your cardstock so two opposite corners of your photo just slips in.

5. Nice A4 Christmassy paper to print Merry Christmas from xxx family to stick inside the card.

6. And before you do all of this...buy nice ready made envelopes and do your card to suit it.

For cutting cardstock and trimming your photos...I highly recommend a cheap metal ruler ($3)and an art scalpel ($3) and something to protect your table while you cut...so a self healing matt ($5) or just some thick box cardboard.

It's all heaps of fun and you can be really creative and stick on nice Christmas glitter, Christmas precut shaped sequins.

Hope that has helped
