How to make a postcard for the New Year?

Any gift we complete with a beautiful postcard. Despite the fact that the counters of bookstores are full of variety of greeting cards, I want to create something special for myself. We will consider how to make a postcard for the New Year.

Postcard with a tree of ribbons and beads

Tools and materials for the production of postcards

  • Double-sided cardboard of bright color (red, blue, silver or golden colors, you can take cardboard with ornament);
  • Bright narrow tape (half a meter) in the color of the selected cardboard;
  • A small bead size (10 pieces) in the color of the cardboard;
  • White cardboard;
  • Gypsy needle;
  • Double sided tape;
  • Glue;
  • Scissors;
  • Figured punch;
  • A simple pencil.

The process of creating a New Year's card

  1. First, you need to make a basis for the postcard: to do this, fold a sheet of double-sided cardboard in half (choose the lighter side for the cover);
  2. Measure on a centimeter from each side of the base and cut off a white sheet of cardboard, equal to the resulting rectangle;
  3. Using a figured punch, cut out the New Year pattern in the corners of the white cardboard (for this, select the nozzle in the form of a Christmas tree, asterisks, snowflakes, etc.);
  4. Glue a prepared sheet of white cardboard inside the postcard on a double-sided adhesive tape;
  5. On the front side of the postcard, with a light touch of a simple pencil, mark the triangle - in the future it will be a Christmas tree made of ribbons and beads;card
  6. Pencil marks on the sides of the triangle every 1.5 centimeters;
  7. Pierce the marks with a gypsy needle, without touching the top of the triangle (holes on each side should be on the same level);
  8. Pass the ribbon into the upper holes and start descending downwards: on the outside of the postcard, the ribbon should have a horizontal pattern (on the inside, the pattern from the tape will go diagonally);
  9. Trim the rest of the tape and gently glue its ends inside the postcard onto a double-sided adhesive tape;
  10. Using a figured punch hole, cut the snowflake into the color of the ribbon and beads. In the absence of a figured punch, cut out the desired figure yourself using scissors;
  11. Glue the cut snowflake onto a double-sided adhesive tape or glue on the top of the tree, and in the middle of the snowflake place a bead;
  12. Decorate the Christmas tree with the remaining beads in a chaotic order;
  13. Write warm wishes on a white sheet inside the postcard.
