Here are (5) tips to make your holiday memory keeping experience a success:
PICK YOUR PAPER (I call this the base of the card)
DECIDE ON DIMENSION
CHOOSE THE CENTERPIECE
MAKE IT PERSONAL
Card making is such a relaxing and fun craft project that you can use to unwind after a long day. It’s always best to start crafting up your cards at least one month before the given season to give yourself time for crafting and shipping out. Card making can also be an act of kindness, as many corporations and charities ask for handmade cards. Never underestimate the power of your own creativity to make change through your crafts, hence my tag line <craft.plan.heal>
