DIY Holiday Cards

Jalen's Bakery

Just in time for the holidays, we will help you create your own holiday cards to send to your loved ones that will be cherished for years to come!

It is a very personal & sentimental gesture to create and give hand-designed cards to your family, friends, co-workers, shelters, etc. In 2017, we created homemade cards for families affected by Hurricane Harvey and it felt really good to be able to do that. You can create cards for all occasions in easy steps.

Cards By Hand:

This option is most suitable for people that have a short list of recipients because it can get very time-consuming.

Grab some cardstock or construction paper fold in half. Decorate the front and write a message on the inside. That's it. Easy right? You can scan your card onto a computer and print out or send to your recipient via email.

Printed Cards:

This is the quickest way to create a lot of cards at once.

Using a software like Microsoft Word you can use a template and customize it to your liking:

Open Microsoft Word, in the file menu, click on "New from template" and in the search bar type: "holiday card" then use the template of your liking and personalize it as we've done below:

Print as many cards as you need or send them to your recipient via email.

If you don't have Microsoft Word, you may want to try a free site like Canva and create your greeting card there.
