Christmas has landed at Maped Helix HQ and we’ve got little hands on site to help us spread the festive cheer far and wide by creating their very own Christmas cards.

Thanks to our trusty Color’Peps felts, crayons and pencils range, our little helpers have made some wonderfully bright and colourful designs, complete with six steps for you to follow at home – so turn up the Christmas songs, it’s time to get crafty with the kids!

Here’s a list of things you might need to get started:

Blank piece of paper/card, any size
Color’Peps Glitter Felts
Color’Peps Twist Crayons (pack of 24)

Step One

Use a blank piece of card or paper, this can be as BIG or as small as you’d like – as long as it’s big enough to fold in half and fill with lots of festive drawings and Christmas wishes, then you’re all set!

Step Two

Choose a drawing that you’d like on the front of your Christmas card. This can be anything from Santa Claus and his sleigh, a Christmas tree, an angel, a robin, holly leaves or even some wrapped-up Christmas presents. Unleash your imagination and pick something which makes you think of Christmas!

Step Three

First, carefully trace your jolly drawing with a pencil – that way you can erase any mistakes as you go!

Step Six

Last but not least, finish your Christmas cards with a personal message inside. Seal them in an envelope, ready to hand-deliver before Santa Claus
makes his arrival on the big day! 

Once you’ve created your jolly cards, send them out and put a smile on your loved ones faces. Remember to take a picture of your creations and share them with us on Facebook using the hashtag, #colorpepsxmas!
