Homemade cards : Many people have a Christmas list of friends and family that they send out cards to during the holiday season. Store bought cards are nice and certainly easy to send, but they can be costly and impersonal. Instead of buying your Christmas cards this year, try making your own. You can make copies of a family photo and add that to your card. You can cut out the graphics on old Christmas cards and use them for embellishments on the new cards. Using stamps is a great way to make quick work out of a lot of cards while still allowing for your homemade skills to shine through.
