How to make: 3 baubles Christmas cards + free printables

Send your loved ones self-made – or at least self-printed – Christmas cards to let them know you are thinking of them. This is part two of the Christmas cards tutorial. And I like it even better, these Christmas baubles cards are just so cute!

Like in part one (Christmas cards with watercolour trees), there are different options with different material and designs. And for the ones with no time, there are the “ready to print baubles cards” – just hit the print button and you got yourself a set of beautiful Christmas cards. But I promise, all of them are pretty easy to make!
