DIY Paper Christmas Decorations

DIY print and make decorations

It’s one week until Christmas! And by now everyone should have their tree up and it be bursting with decorations. To help anyone who’s tree looks a bit bare, or an office that needs festivising, I have designed some print-at-home paper decorations.

Free to download, just print the template and have your scissors and glue at the ready! Merry Christmas 🙂

Alternative Shy Christmas Cards

I’ve crafted Christmas cards in same style as my Shy poster series, that featured different printing techniques and subtle colour changes to show a subtle, typographic message.

The worst thing about these cards is that they don’t photograph well! The Christmassy message written on each I’ve got to a perfect amount of visibility (through lots of trial and error).

The first card is fairly traditional with the lyrics “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” on the front in… white. The minimal, effortlessly cool style of the white on white is perfect for those that like a twist on standard Christmas cards.

The other cards take their inspiration for the Pogues song Fairytale of New York. These ‘shy’ cards have had a Christmas drink and are now a bit sweary.

You’re a bum
You’re a punk
You’re an old slut on junk
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag, you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God it’s our last

Christmas Cards 2012

I’ve been busy making Christmas cards with a unique little feel.

My Yeti Christmas cards use clean, minimal design to show off the furry coat he has on. Each one has to be cut out individually which means each looks unique and appears to have a different personality. These aren’t just Christmas cards, you’re adopting a new family member when you receive these!

A limited number are available to buy now on danmackey.bigcartel.com. See how they are made in the gallery below:
