What goes hand in hand with Christmas? Crafting, of course!
But honestly, between the baking/sweet making, and all the shopping and wrapping of Christmas presents, who has the time to make a thoughtful card?
This year, I do!
That’s because of this book, which was so kindly sent over. It’s called Christmas Paper Crafting: Holiday Cards, Gift Tags, and More! and it’s absolutely brilliant. It makes me feel like a regular ol’ Martha Stewart, but with 90% less effort.
Price: CAD 24.99 (but it’s currently CAD 17.30 on Amazon.ca right now!)
It comes packed full of designs to make:
- 50 Christmas cards
- 18 mini cards
- 16 gift tags
- 6 bookmarks
- Envelope templates (in 2 sizes)
- Scrapbooking paper
The colors are festive, but not so festive that they cannot be used for winter birthdays. I don’t think that these designs are only applicable for the Christmas season – they are surprisingly versatile! The graphics are a mix of traditional and modern design, combined with bright and bold colours. All papers are archival quality, acid free, card-stock thickness. This book is for the avid crafter or the lazy crafter (ahem, me) so I sure as hell know it’s going to make my gift wrapping/giving process a lot easier!
