Need an easy and quick craft project for the kiddos? This kid-friendly photo card DIY will keep them busy and create some fun memories without spending too much. With just a few simple supplies, they can make these to send out to grandparents for any holiday, or even just to say hello. We’ve laid out the basic DIY instructions, but we are relying on you guys to keep it super creative!


  • 1 4″ x 4″ PostalPix Photo Print
  • Cardstock
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Child-safe Scissors
  • Washi Tape (or any adhesive)


  • Get cardstock that you will use as the card or recycle something you already have! In this tutorial, a folder (Dollar Spot at Target) was used that already had some decorative polka-dots.
  • Figure out how big you want the card to be (this one was just eyeballed) and make sure you have an envelope large enough.
  • You can cut this part out for the kids or have them practice cutting straight lines.
  • Parents, measure out an approximate sized window for the photo to peek out of. Since a 4 x 4 photo print was used, the window here was measured out to be 3.5″ x 3.5″.
  • You can also cut this part out for them or have them cut out fun shapes (because any shaped window will be pretty awesome.)
  • Use washi tape to adhere the photo to the window so that it shows through.
  • Decorate, decorate, decorate! Let their creativity run wild with this.
