"I love all shutterfly cards.....I have done them for every possible occasion.....definitely recommend them...."
"I was impressed by the quality (stock) of the card. I used this as the thank you for my twin daughters' communion thank you. I have received many compliments on the card. I would definitely use again."
"I've made cards through Shutterfly for years. This is the first time I've made Christmas cards on photo paper. I love them! The photos are so sharp, the designs are so colorful. And they're lightweight, so I know one stamp will be enough. I will be making a lot more!"
"The combination of my specific photo, the card's design and its theme makes for a special Christmas Card. I did however, buy this along with a 10 card promotion; otherwise, I could not have afforded it. Everything has become so much more expensive."
The holidays are great times to bond with the children in your life. Creating decorations is not only a fun activity to enjoy, but it also creates mementoes that you can cherish for years to come, not to mention the fond memories. Check out these three fun and creative decoration ideas.
These ornaments are a breeze to create, and are safe for little ones to help throughout the process. You can either purchase colored ornaments or have the children paint them the color of their choice. Then, place some brown paint on their thumb and have them press it against the ornament. This will create the face of the reindeer. Complete the process by using black paint to add the facial features and antlers. If you like, you can also add a red nose!
You can make this chain using some old glitter Christmas cards from years past, or new ones, such as these yellow Christmas cards, to create this fun decoration. You simply need a long string or wire, and a whole puncher. Some cards may already be designed to function as ornaments, which you can easily add to the wire. Otherwise, simply make a whole and string it on the wire or string. Then you can hang the card chain on a wall or over a doorpost to bring in that festive feel.
Collect all of the ingredients for your favorite hot chocolate combination and a few mason jars. Together, pour the hot chocolate into the bottom of the jar, then begin to layer the additional dressings. You can create these as party favors, decorations or Christmas night treats!
