If you like to create hand made cards for the holidays, an easy tip to prepare is to make a variety of backgrounds on blank notecards. You can then add a quick sentiment and you have a card ready to hand out or mail.

Even though the holidays are months away, it’s never too early to think about what kind of cards you would like to send out. If you are planning on making your own cards, you want them to be quick and easy to recreate. My project today uses only paper punches and your favorite paper for a modern and fun twist on the traditional Christmas card.
When it comes to stamping the possibilities truly are endless. Whether you’re making your own stamps using everyday materials, or using favorite store bought rubber stamps, stamping on paper or linen, you and your family can create memorable keepsakes, decorate clothing, make presents or just create for the sake of creating!
This first project is a fantastic tutorial for hand stamping linen. This would make a great teen or family craft. Once you make the stamps kids can do the stamping. Everyone can decorate their own scarves with a little help from older siblings and parents.
