Make your own: Salt-glitter Christmas cards
Handmade is always nicer and better still when it's made with love from the kids. These gorgeous Christmas cards put a new spin on the traditional use of glitter with the addition of salt to the mix. Create a whole new look and shine to your artwork and watch the creations shimmer this Christmas.
- cardstock paper
- 2 trays
Step 1. Pour your glitter, sequins and salt onto your tray. Make sure there is not too much salt in the mix as there is such a thing as "too salty".
Step 2. On your other tray, dab two different paint colours. Let the kids choose their favourite.
Step 3. Once their hands are covered in paint, press firmly onto the cardstock and lift. This will leave some colourful hand prints and a great base for the salt-glitter to stick to.
Step 4. Lay the hand print cards into the salt-glitter tray making sure the whole hand print picks up the glitter, salt and sequin mix.
There you have it, ready to write on and give to friends and family.
