Creative Christmas Kaisercraft Ideas


Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by here today.
 Adriana here today sharing some ideas for 
Creative Christmas Projects

The countdown is on, and I can't believe it but did you know that there only 3 months to Christmas!!!!!! Are you ready????   





  


Today, I will be sharing some Christmas festive fun. I have created some Christmas Cards, an advent calendar and some Paper Decorations for decorating your Christmas tree.

 I love Christmas, it's a great time of the year, I love the colour and the brightness of Christmas. It’s a time to celebrate with family and friends. Decorating Christmas trees, walls and tabletops of your home, can be so much fun and so easy to do, especially with the wonderful Kaisercraft paper and products.  It’s definitely a great way to get the children involved too, 
in so many ways.

Christmas craft creating doesn’t have to go over the top and can save you a little bit of money too. I think everyone appreciates a handmade card or gift, more now, than ever before.
So, here are some suggestions to get you started.
Also, why not get the children or grandchildren to help you and get
 involved as well.


Christmas Cards for everyone to create.

Firstly, Handmade cards are so lovely to receive. 
Sending Christmas cards in the mail these days is a dying art, so I am going to show you how easy and affordable they are to make.
You can create very simple Christmas cards or very intricate ones, for that very special family member or friend. The possibilities are endless and so easy with Kaisercraft Christmas papers and products.

Here are just a few ideas for Christmas cards, I also created some cards using a snowflake stamp, these Christmas cards are very simple to create and you could get your children or grandchildren to create them. They are so much fun. 


Anyone can create simple christmas cards with the Kaisercraft papers and Collectables pieces. Advanced card makers, use die cuts with a manual die cut machines, and sometimes these cards are so very 3 Dimensional cards, that you can have them on display in the home.

Here, I have created some christmas cards. 
Using the same die cut, but in different ways, and with different christmas papers.
Each card looks different and the possibilities are endless.

Using the Kaiser Decorative die  DD530 Nativity Scene and Home for Christmas papers.






Here are some other cards - Using the same Die DD530 Nativity Scene but with the Silver Bells paper Christmas collection. 



and finally a Tri fold card for display on a bookcase or table.



Here are some very simple cards with the "Home for Christmas' Collection
paper pad and Collectables, very easy to do. Just add some double sided foam tape under each collectable piece for added dimension.





Now for a very simple card, that you could get your children to create. Using the Stampset from the Silver Bells collection, some ink pads, and some glitter glue, you could create these simple bauble cards.



Here is a quick step-by-step on how create this very simple christmas card.






Advent Calendars

Kaisercraft have the best range of DIY advent calendars.
These are a great hit with the little people.
You can put messages, jokes or chocolates inside each little box.
Counting down the days to Christmas Day can be such a treat and lots of fun with the family. These also make great gifts, as they can be put away after each year and used again and again.

Here is my Advent Calendar using the Kaisercraft SB2066 Advent Calendar
and the Silver Bells paper collection.
Lots of soft pastels and touches of glitter on this advent calendar.



You might notice the Wooden Flourish Sleigh Scene FL573 Flourish Sleigh Scene, this is another new release product, and it just fits in perfectly inside this advent calendar. The little boxes and numbers are included with the advent calendar pack.





I die cut some Poinsettia's flowers and added some glitter flourish bling, adhering them on the top of the advent calendar.


There are so many other Kaiser new advent calendars available - 
check them all HERE

The advent Calendars all come with these little boxes,but you have
to glue together, yourself. It's very easy to do.



THEN to cover these little cute boxes, Kaisercraft have released
a new product to help you cover each of these little boxes.
DD721 Advent Box Diecut
How fabulous!!!! these die cut pieces cover the little boxes perfectly.

Just fold all the flaps, glue to outside of chipboard boxes, decorate as required. 
TOO EASY !!!


Die cut DD721 Advent Box & all my cut out pieces ready to be covered on the little boxes.

Tree ornaments  Ideas

Dressing up the christmas tree can be so much fun and a great way for all the family to be involved. Christmas paper ornaments are so easy to make especially with the different themed Kaisercraft Christmas papers. I am sure there is one that will match your home theme. Best of all, they are all co-ordinated to match together.

Here I created some tree hanging ornaments, these are very quick and easy to do. Kaisercraft new Christmas die cuts make it so easy to create these little cute Ornaments.




To create these very simple ornaments.
Materials you will need. 

Home for Christmas papers - P1938 Eggnog, P1943 Laurel.
Glue, Green ribbon, Red cardstock.
Kaisercraft clear stickers - ST921 Season's Greeting
Kaisercraft diecuts - DD324 Dove, DD530 Nativity Scene, DD536 Snowflake.
also DD509 Nesting Rectangle.

Using your manual die cut machine, cut the Rectangle from the rectangle die cut and red card stock. Using the next size of the rectangle die cut, cut the inside of the red card stock.
Now you have a rectangle frame.

Cut your snowflake, Nativity scene or Dove and adhere with glue on the edges.





Decorate with kaisercraft Clear stickers. Attached a ribbon bow to the front of ornament and a hooped ribbon piece on the back of the paper ornament.





Now,  here is one ornament using a small 4 x4 canvas board
(you can buy these from most art and craft supplier or retailer). I covered the top with some christmas paper and cut out the Nativity scene diecut and paper, glued a ribbon on the back and ribbon bow on the front.



Here are some more ideas…..using the Kaisercraft Holly leaf diecut DD327 
I created one with Silver Bells paper collection and the other with Home for Christmas papers, Just you show you all that any coloured theme can work wonderfully.







Well, that all from me today, I hope that I have given you all some inspiration to start creating some wonderful decorations, projects and cards for Christmas……

Happy Christmas Creating with Kaisercraft :)
Cheers Adriana XX
