Review: Action, make your own Christmas card booklets
Last week I was at the Action as so often ;-). I was browsing through the Christmas stuff when I spotted 4 different booklets with which you can make different types of Christmas cards. I couldn't choose in the store so I bought all four. In this article I will show you the booklets, show you my own cards and of course tell you what I thought of them.
Make your own different Christmas card booklets from Action
Because I couldn't choose, I bought all 4 different booklets. These are:
“Make your own honeycomb cards”
“Make your own pop-up cards”
“Make your own cutaway cards”
“Make your own 3D cards”
The booklets cost €1.29 each and are all different. The booklets are pre-punched sheets of paper with sometimes gold and silver foil or glitter. The booklets also all contain instructions with photos on how to make the Christmas cards and what else you need.
Booklet 1: Make your own honeycomb cards
With this paper booklet you can make 6 cards, two of which are the same.
I have only made two cards from this booklet. I have quite a bit of patience, but I discovered that making honeycomb cards is really not for me. I want to do everything very neatly and I just couldn't do that.
Booklet 2: Make your own pop-up cards
With this paper booklet you can make 8 cards, 4 different designs
I also never actually make pop-up cards. And with such a pre-punched paper book this is easy to do! Although I continue to have a love-hate relationship with pre-punched booklets. It's super easy, but often those white bits remain on the images. I think less of that. I have already made two different cards from this booklet. The card with the houses in particular is my favorite. I love that you can actually put it down.
Booklet 3: Make your own die-cut cards
With this booklet you can make 5 cards and 5 envelopes.
I find these cards very chic and festive. The envelope is made of glitter paper and the card uses gold foil. Making these Christmas cards was also super simple. And with this card I was happy that everything was pre-punched, although sometimes I had to help with a box cutter. That was a shame.
Tip! If you did not paste the Christmas message in it, but a different image, you could also use the card for other occasions :-).
Booklet 4: Make your own 3D maps
With this paper booklet you can make 8 cards, there are 4 different designs so you make each card twice.
Making these cards was very simple but certainly fun to do. I made 2 of the 4 cards again. The card with the deer and the Christmas tree appeal to me the most. I think deer are super cute. I also like silver better than gold :-).
My experience with the Action Christmas card booklets
I definitely recommend that you buy one of these Christmas card making books. It is certainly something different from the standard 3D cards that you can often make with a booklet. My personal favorite is “make your own pop-up cards”. But I also enjoyed making “make your own punched out cards” and “make your own 3D cards”. I personally didn't like the honeycomb cards as much.
Have you made many Christmas cards yet? Or do you still have to start?
