"Loved being able to personalize this card for our Church family Great quality & price"
"The blurred edge helped cover up the fact that the top of someone's hair was missing from the frame!"
"Every year, our friends and family wait for our Christmas Card. We are usually the first (they go out day before Thanksgiving) and the most creative. We can tell the story of our year in pics and words. LOVE Shutterfly. I hope when Shutterfly takes over Wedding Divas that Shutterfly keeps the Wedding invitation that my daughter wants (Elegant Sky)."
"Amazing quality! I am so happy with my custom Christmas cards! I honestly couldn't be happier! Colour is exact. Paper is high quality. Will definitely order again! Can't wait to mail out Christmas cards this year. Can't share a pic on here because I want it to be a surprise for family and friends, otherwise I would."
"Everything they do is top quality. I've ordered photos, books, magnets, large prints.... all fantastic!"
Many cultures have used evergreen trees to symbolize eternal life, and during the cold, winter holidays, these trees were a sign that spring would come again. Christmas tree decorating has taken on a life of its own, but you can bring back some of that naturalist intent with plenty of live, green decorations in your home this season. Soon, your Christmas will be as green as your eco-friendly, green Christmas cards. Here's how!
Instead of chopping down a full tree, why not bring just a few trimmings home? Not only are you keeping a tree in its natural environment where animals and insects call home, but you can use the trimmings in a variety of places. Since they're small, it's easy to slip them alongside other home decorations, or string multiple ones together to make your own wreath.
Any round base works for making a wreath, but if you have some old metal hangers laying around, you don't have to buy any extra supplies. Once you have a base, hot glue lets you fix the trimmings in whatever way you want. Add some personal touches and your wreath is ready to hang.
Using a similar idea as making your own wreath, you can use glue or string to tie many trimmings together to make your own garland. You can hang this on your mantle, down a stair railing or even trim your television. Another idea is to bunch some trimmings together and use them as bookends.
Real holiday garlands are a great way to get into the season and they make your home smell amazing. If you're going green this holiday season, try making square Christmas cards, too. Whether they're just for bringing cheer to your Christmas list, or you're using them as holiday invitations, the bright pop of green will keep spring alive when the ground is inches in snow.
