Turn your child’s art into Christmas cards

Here’s an really easy way to turn your’ child’s art into Christmas cards.  It may be simple but the cards look gorgeous and make a wonderful keepsake.

Turning your child’s art into a Christmas card – or any-time-of-year card – is a lovely way to share their creativity with someone else they love.
