Do a dry run. When your order arrives, take a few candles out of the box and put them in the Candle Clips or Pendulum Candle Holders. Hold the holders up as if they were on the tree. Does the candle fit snugly? If necessary, bend the tines at the base of the holder inward so they firmly grip the bottom of the candle. Youll get the hang of it. Your goal is to make sure the candle doesnt wobble or lean when it comes time to decorate the tree.
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.
Using the kids artwork, paintings and drawings from throughout the year will both involve them and use up all of that paper you have lying around. Paintings and collages can easily be turned into cute cards. Even worksheets with their colouring and writing on it can be used. Including the kids in your cardmaking does need some planning, so gather your materials and tools ahead of time. There is no surer way of boring the kids by running around trying to find those scissors when they are ready to go.
