Christmas Time is {almost} Here

In CraftLand, this is the peak of the Christmas season. I have gifts to make for each of my boys, plus it's time to start whipping up the family Christmas card.

If you're looking for ideas to make your own cards, I love this paper from Making Memories. I think of it as a Christmas damask, and the poinsettias are flocked in such a rich red. Plus if you're looking to mass-produce cards, it doesn't get much easier than this!

The total cost for the papers works out to about 35 cents per card. Add the ribbon and brad, and the card tops a dollar. But you could certainly tie the ribbon into an elegant bow instead of using a brad. (Though that brad is cute, isn't it?)

Have any of you started on your Christmas crafts? I'd love to hear about them. :)

Paper: Stampin' Up! (Old Olive, Kiwi Kiss), Making Memories (Poinsettia Flocked Mistletoe).
Ribbon: Stampin' Up! (Kiwi Kiss double-sided satin).
Brad: Making Memories (Brad Combo Mistletoe).
Punch: Stampin' Up! (corner rounder).
