Flash Post: Seasons Greetings
What It Is:Don’t hate me! I cringe a little too when I see holiday decorations lining the aisles of the big box stores in town (it’s not even Halloween!), but in this case I think my idea for today is warranted. We are exactly three months out from Christmas eve as of today, and this gift idea is more of a gift idea turned pay-it-forward gift idea, which involves a bit of handicraft and hard work. What is it you ask? A card-making kit: including video tutorials, a book, and a massive design database for you to customize your Christmas (or holiday) cards this year. Although it doesn’t include all the crafty embellishments like glitter or ribbons, it is meant to be used with your home computer and printer, so you can not only lovingly craft each card, but possibly save a few bucks while you’re doing it. Pair it with a gift card to Michael’s or your local craft supply shop so whoever you’re gifting can let their creative juices run wild this fall!
Who It’s For:Your DIY best friend who is sending out her first ever Christmas cards this year. Your recently retired mom, to occupy her hands and mind. Your craft-loving spouse, so she can team up with her friends to divide & conquer at a cardmaking party next month.
What It Costs:$19.95
Where It’s At:Art supply shop Dick Blick.
