With the Holiday season right around the corner, turn the attention away from electronics and back to basic, fun with papercrafting. ‘Christmas Papercrafting: Holiday Cards, Gift Tags, and More’ features 112 pages of every paper craft you can imagine! Featuring designs and projects from artists Thaneeya McArdle, Robin Pickens, Angelea Van Dam, Valentina Harper, and Valerie McKeehan, you’ll have no trouble creating your most beautiful Christmas yet!
If you aren’t familiar with papercrafting, think greeting cars, bookmarks, scrapbooking, etc. With the rising cost and lessening quality to boxed greeting cards, making your own, personalized cards may just be the way to go. I was thrilled with the beautiful, high-quality designs in this book. The cards are easily removed from the book and are pre-colored for convenience. Add your own personal touches and you’re good-to-go.
Another thing that definitely caught my attention were the bookmarks. As a former, longtime Sunday School teacher, I recognized these as the perfect, time-sensitive craft for all ages. Kids love bookmarks, especially ones that they’ve created themselves. If you are an educator in homeschool or brick and mortar schools and need some fresh ideas for this year’s season, try papercrafting. With an MSRP of $19.99, the book will pay for itself in the time and money you’ll save trying to come up with seasonal activities. Also included are gift tags and frameable art.
I love the originality of the crafts and appreciate how many crafts they’ve included in the book. It’s being offered for a very economical price considering all it provides.
