This frugal snowflake card craft is made from card, contact paper, sequins and glitter.

To make these easy snowflake cards with your child you will need:
- Snowflake-shaped sequins and loose glitter in white/silver/blue
- Clear Contact paper
The first step is to get your child involved. My son is 2.5yrs and is already very experienced at contact paper crafts! Tape a piece of contact paper down to a table – sticky side up – using some painter’s tape. Then set out the sequins (I had three different colors) and some glitter.
F spent quite a while positioning the snowflake sequins.
I gave him a spoon for the glitter and he rather enjoyed spreading it onto the sticky paper!
When he had finished I laid another sheet of contact paper over the top to seal in the sequins and glitter.
Cut a piece of cardstock in half and then fold each piece in half. Cut a window from one half of the folded card, and then glue a piece of the artwork inside the window. NOTE: Alternatively you can skip this step and use ready-made photo frame cards instead!
The card has a great see-through effect (that actually you don’t get with the photo frame cards). I tried both black and white cardstock – the black has better contrast but somehow less Christmassy. I think I will try this craft again next year and use some green or red card instead!
