Set the kids up with their artwork and old cards and get them to cut their work down to a size that will fit neatly onto your card. If you are using a standard card size of 148mm x 105mm (A4 cut in half, then folded in half) a square of 90mmx90mm will fit nicely. Accuracy isnt important; it will add to the overall charm of the cards. Get a pile of these and keep the leftover pieces too - they can be used to create a collage.
Christmas is the only festival that is celebrated in all over the world by different religions with their own styles and cultures. It falls on December 25 every year and prompts us to enjoy ourselves by decorating our living space and engaged with several fun activities. However, the idea of decorating the home on the eve of Christmas is something that varies from person to person. Some people enjoy decorating their home with their own style by following it every year. Such people often follow their traditional way to decorate the living space and enjoy with that.
Are you planning to make your own Christmas cards for the upcoming holidays? Are you worried about the funding associated with buying numerous gifts? Worry no more because you can save money by making your own greeting cards. Christmas is not only the time to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ, but it is also the season of gift giving and sharing of blessings to friends, loved ones, colleagues and less fortunate individuals.
Our great-grandparents were on to something. They used Christmas Tree Candles and this is how they experienced Christmas every year. Lets say youve decided to go green and use Christmas Tree Candles instead of kilowatts this year. Finding genuine Christmas Candles is not easy, because they basically vanished from the market 90 years ago. But persistence pays off. I discuss various sources in another article I wrote about Christmas lights, but if you want to save time, its easiest to order them from a reputable dealer.
Indoor and outdoor Christmas decorations can also add elegance and holiday cheer to your home. From outdoor lights and simple lawn decorations to indoor small decor pieces, you can easily update your Christmas decorations with a few new pieces. Choose places in your home to add a holiday splash, like bookshelves, coffee tables, dressers, end tables and shelves. Small decorations to adorn these places include holiday candles, nutcracker statues, holiday figurines, nativity sets and garlands. You can also get some great holiday throw pillows for a couch or chairs.
So if youre new to candy making start with some simple home made candy recipes, and start well before Christmas so that you can have some time to perfect your technique.
