What are your Christmas card message ideas for 2020? Do you have any ideas for messages to add to your holiday cards this year that mention the craziness of this last year? Punchy, funny, or caring?
When my kids were young we made some cards that are still talked about today over 20 yrs. later.
I took a piece of plain copy paper and folded it in half so it looked like a greeting card. My youngest son drew a picture on the front, of Santa's sleigh flying over our house. My older son wrote 'Merry Christmas' on the front and a message inside. They each signed it. I taped a new school picture on the opposite inside page and they wrote their name and age under them.
I took that to a copy store and had it copied on both sides using solid red paper. 50 copies was way cheaper than regular Christmas cards. It turned out to be a big hit. It was really cute and very original. The kids pictures were a big hit even though they were in black and white. I usually didn't have enough school pictures to send to everybody.
We mailed most of them but handed out a few at church. They took one to their teacher, school bus driver, lunchroom ladies, and their friends. Save your original because you will probably have to make a 2nd trip to the copy shop like us.
