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.
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 the receiver is quite important for you, you should pack the cookies as a formal Christmas gift. The package is not really needed if the they are for family members. Photos gift idea Giving some photos of your travel, house or flowers in your garden is really interesting homemade Christmas gift idea. If possible, you can make the photos with beautiful frames.
Thats not to say, of course, that all homemade candy is easy to make. Some candies are quite complex for the beginner, especially those involving a syrup. A syrup is water and sugar that is simmered to a particular temperature. The temperature you need varies with the outcome you want to produce, and sometimes its easy to get it wrong. And that could ruin the candy.
Another easy tip for updating your Christmas decorations is to purchase a new wreath for your front door or mantle. Christmas wreaths make classy focal points that complement Christmas trees. Pick a wreath that has a beautiful bow and some other tasteful decorations to add an extra touch of holiday spirit to your decor. You can choose a decorative, fake wreath that will keep for years, or a fresh wreath that you can display for the month of December and a few weeks after, depending on the type and care needed.
