For the first time I decided to design a Christmas card that ties in with a book title. I selected a spread from my new Christmas book entitled When When When will it be Christmas? The spread features a mouse in a pink tutu, snipping paper, to make snowflake decorations for Christmas. I thought it would be fun to devise a kit from which the recipient could make their own snipped, paper snowflake. After much engineering and several prototypes, I made one that worked well. The most difficult job was creating a set of instructions and carefully drawing them out to be printed.
It was all a lot of fun, but took much longer than I expected.
It became an interactive card as many people sent photos or tweeted/texted images of their completed snowflakes!
