Holiday Card Workshop

While we regretfully cannot host an in-person card workshop this year, we want to carry on this beloved annual tradition by bringing holiday cheer to your home. The National Postal Museum is offering a limited supply of card-making kits that we will send to you free of charge. Use your own scissors, glue, markers and crayons, and we will provide a small selection of supplies for at-home crafting.
