Now you have a pile of cards with colourful squares onto front. Add a greeting underneath, using a sticker, stamp or your own handwriting (or get the kids to do the writing, if they are able too) Note: Dont worry if you dont like your own handwriting - no one else will be as picky as you and it will add to the personal touch and charm of the cards.
Using the kids artwork, paintings and drawings from throughout the year will both involve them and use up all of that paper you have lying around. Paintings and collages can easily be turned into cute cards. Even worksheets with their colouring and writing on it can be used. Including the kids in your cardmaking does need some planning, so gather your materials and tools ahead of time. There is no surer way of boring the kids by running around trying to find those scissors when they are ready to go.

Our great-grandparents were on to something. They used Christmas Tree Candles and this is how they experienced Christmas every year. Lets say youve decided to go green and use Christmas Tree Candles instead of kilowatts this year. Finding genuine Christmas Candles is not easy, because they basically vanished from the market 90 years ago. But persistence pays off. I discuss various sources in another article I wrote about Christmas lights, but if you want to save time, its easiest to order them from a reputable dealer.
Thats not to say, of course, that all homemade candy is easy to make. Some candies are quite complex for the beginner, especially those involving a syrup. A syrup is water and sugar that is simmered to a particular temperature. The temperature you need varies with the outcome you want to produce, and sometimes its easy to get it wrong. And that could ruin the candy.
Do a dry run. When your order arrives, take a few candles out of the box and put them in the Candle Clips or Pendulum Candle Holders. Hold the holders up as if they were on the tree. Does the candle fit snugly? If necessary, bend the tines at the base of the holder inward so they firmly grip the bottom of the candle. Youll get the hang of it. Your goal is to make sure the candle doesnt wobble or lean when it comes time to decorate the tree.
