Pink Einstein Christmas Day 1: DIY Christmas Cards

For the first day of A Pink Einstein Christmas I am showing you how to make super cute and super easy Christmas cards that will be great to hand out to friends and family! Don't forget that if you make any of these post a picture to Instagram with the #PEChristmas 



 Supplies:
  • Red, green, and yellow markers
  • A thin and a bigger black marker
  • Scissors
  • Paper
  • Fancy scissors (optional)

1. You are going to start out by folding your paper in half and using your fancy scissors to cut the bottom. I then drew two lines with my larger marker that are to be strands of Christmas lights. Next I drew light bulbs on the strand by drawing tear drop shapes.
2. I colored in the lights and I colored them in in no particular order.
3. I wrote Merry Christmas at the bottom
And now you have a really simple yet super cute Christmas card to give to your friends and family!
Supplies:

  • Paper (I used water color paper)
  • Watercolors 
  • Paint brush
  • Thin black marker or Sharpie pen


1. Paint two colored ornaments right next to each other. I left a sliver on the right side of each ornament white to look like a reflection. You can personalize this card by making the ornaments that receiver's favorite colors.

2. I outlined the ornaments with a Sharpie pen and drew the top of the ornament.

3. Next I added line in the ornament top to give it detail.
4. I drew the string on the top of the ornament and drew a bow on one of them. (I suggest making your bow look nicer than mine 😂)
5. I splatter painted the background with the same two colors I used for the ornaments.

Supplies:

  • Brown marker
  • Thin black marker or Sharpie pen
  • Red marker/Sharpie
  • Paper
  • Black marker


1. Start by coloring your finger brown and placing it on the paper.
2. Do that as many times as you want. I decided to use two different shades of brown.
3. Draw eyes on the finger prints
4. Draw noses on the reindeer. I made one of mine Rudolph
5. Add antlers to the reindeer
6. Add bow ties and bows

Luv Ya! ❤
