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.
if you have planned to decorate your home only with the Christmas tree that will be the most appreciable idea as the beauty of Christmas is centered on the tree. While decorating the bedrooms, or childrens room, you need to consider the size of the rooms and decorate it with the correct size of Christmas trees. Moreover, you can also decorate your kitchen by putting the small Christmas trees.
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.
Materials - You must gather all the materials needed ahead of time, such as ribbons, sequins, dried flowerettes and leaves, color pen, laces, cardboard and many more. You can buy them in bulk to get discounts. Theme - Decide what theme you want to have.
You can choose one of two kinds of candle holders: the Clip On Christmas Tree Candle Holder, which you clamp on to a branch; or the Pendulum Christmas Tree Candle Holder, which has a stem and a counterweight that you use to balance the holder as it hangs on the Christmas tree. Theres no right or wrong. Pick the model you like best.
Now you have a pile of cards with colourful squares onto front. Add a greeting underneath, using a sticker, stamp or your own handwriting (or get the kids to do the writing, if they are able too) Note: Dont worry if you dont like your own handwriting - no one else will be as picky as you and it will add to the personal touch and charm of the cards.
