We’re here with our final Good Cheer Greetings post. Today, we’re going to give you some ideas for how you can make last-minute use of our cute printables in the hours leading up to Christmas Day.
Good Cheer Gift Tags
Running low on gift tags? One easy idea is to print the 2×3 size, cut them out, and then write the “to” and “from” information on the back. Finish each tag with a hole punch, threading a ribbon through and attaching it to your gift bag or box.
Noel Name Placards
Need super-quick name cards for your table setting? Print the 2×3 page, and cut the tags like so:
Write each person’s name on the blank white space at the bottom, and voila!
You can even use them to label your sugar jar or any other container that your houseguests may use.
Popsicle Stick Puzzles
Want something to keep the kids occupied during the Sunday morning service this year? Here’s a fun Christmas Eve activity. Make popsicle stick puzzles. They’ll be ready in time for the next day.
- 10 large wooden craft sticks
- Good Cheer Greeting size 5×7, printed on cardstock or photo paper and trimmed
- Mod Podge – I used matte
- Craft or utility knife
1. Apply a coat of Mod Podge to the back of the Good Cheer Greeting.
2. Lay the sticks side by side along the length of the Greeting.
3. Keep going till the whole thing is covered with sticks.
4. Slather the sticks with Mod Podge and let dry.
5. Cover the other side — the side with the Greeting — with Mod Podge, too. Let dry.
6. Snap the first stick to crease the Greeting, and use a craft or utility knife to cut the stick free along the crease.
7. Repeat till you’ve separated all the sticks.
8. Pop the sticks into a baggie and give them to your kids, or place them in a cup at home and let your Christmas guests go to work putting the images together.
One last idea … if you need something super easy, then you can simply print out the 5×7 page, and use scissors to trim the white border around the two images. Then, fold the remainder in half and you’ve got a nice little standing card that you can place on your dinner table, end table, or anywhere you’d like to be reminded of God’s love for you this Christmas.
