This year, our cards are already in progress and are different than the usual cards. Actually they are Wishing Boxes! I have to admit that I do not know how to draw a line, so imagine how happy I am when we found with my princess in youtube, videos about how to draw simple comic characters and then our little Santa Claus and his little helper were ready! I was so thrilled, that I have done a few of them! The procedure is really easy after that. Just draw your comic character or anything you wish, to a white cardboard and cut it with a paper cutter. Paint them and add some color!
Let’s put aside the paintings and prepare our box now. Jewelry boxes or any small box you wish to use. If the box is already painted, then there is nothing to do, except maybe to add some beautiful details like ribbons. Our boxes were recycled with the typical smoky brown, so polka dots in green and bright green and red were just perfect! Acrylic paint and a cotton swab and let the kids to do the rest of the work. Allow it to dry for a while.
Our Wishing Boxes are almost ready! Just use 3D foam with glue on the back of your comics and put them inside the boxes. If you are not able to find this 3D foam cubes, just use plastic buttons and glue in the same way. Close the boxes and decorate them again with a ribbon. And we are done!
Every year the wishing cards are handmade with the help of my princess (yes, this year the prince will also help us) and it is part of our Advent Calendar of course…actually tomorrow is the day to prepare with the kids, cards for their friends!
