Herb-scented Christmas card

What you need

  • Blank card
  • Brown paper
  • Wax paper
  • String
  • Candle and lighter
  • Dried herb of choice: we used thyme
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Ink pen

1. Fold brown paper in half and place on the inside of a blank card. Cut the brown paper to approximately 1cm bigger than the blank card and glue the two together along the seam.

2. Place the card at a 45° angle on wax paper and cut a square around the card.

3. Cut off the top sections. Write a message in the card and add sprigs of herbs. Close the card and fold over the sides of wax paper.

4. Tie string around the card, making sure that a centre knot is on the wax paper fold. Place herbs on top and seal with candle wax.
