Season Greetings Mommy! I love this time of year, the lights, the tree, my family, the food, oh em gee the food is crazy. Money is a major factor for my family at this time of year, with 6 of us need gifts of love, I have to be super mom and find innovative ways to save a few dimes. Printables are a life saver and I have gotten quite good at making very useful ones. Christmas Notecards have become a yearly thing for me it saves me quite a bit of money.
Saving money for the season is crucial to ensure that you have a successful January. If you’re like me who has Christmas, anniversary and my daughters birthday, days apart from each other it is VITAL that I save money.
I started using Notecards to leave for the garbage men for their yearly Christmas tip. That evolved into leaving “Happy Birthday” notes for coworkers and to also drop in gift bags.
My favourite card is this silver gift box. It’s so simplistic and it shouts Christmas. I like the one little snow-covered pine cone it brings a little bit of rustic to the image
One of the ways I have saved money is, of course, creating my own resources, like colouring pages, planners and note cards. The hardest part of creating the cards is deciding on an image. That can take 2-3 days, I’m a bit picky.
Not only can these Notecards be used for Christmas but there are super cute for the New Years, aaaaand you can print exactly the amount you need and save the file for the next holiday. Save Money, Save Trees!
Printing is quite easy, regular US Letter size paper holds 4 images per page.
Print on card stock paper
The last sheet has lines that you can print on the reverse side of the images, you can always leave it blank
Cut along dotted line and viola instant Christmas Notecards
Let me see if we have this covered; printing your own notecards for Christmas allows you to do a few things:
- Save Money
- Use for Note-taking
- Used a gift card
- Reduce wasting paper because you print what you need
- Have the ability to have a variety of styles
- Print Blank or with Lines
There is no shame in having Christmas on a budget. The point of living a purposeful life is to be focused on how you make others feel on a level that they can understand while enjoying what you are doing for them. In other words, it’s the thought that counts.
Merry Christmas from My Family to Yours!
