These sweet and festive birds will bring the gladest of tidings with this easy-to-make set of cards. Referring to the photo, cut out bird shapes from scraps of green and red cardstock. Use a 1/4-inch circle punch to punch out hat pom-poms from white cardstock and eyes from black cardstock for the birds. Cut out hat shapes from red and green cardstock, hatbands from white cardstock, and wing shapes from patterned cardstock.
Fold 4-1/4x5-1/2-inch pieces of white cardstock in half. Lightly draw bird legs on the front of each card with a pencil; draw over pencil lines with a black ink pen.
Cut out beak shapes from black cardstock; glue the flat end to the back of each bird body. Adhere a bird to the front of each card using small amounts of glue. Glue hatband and pom-pom to hat; set hat aside. Machine-stitch wing to body and body to card front. Glue the hat in place.
