12 Joys of Christmas: Making Christmas cards

The run up to Christmas can be very hectic and it’s easy to forget what this time of year is really all about.  With this in mind we’ve put together 12 activities that are either very cheap to do or free to put you back in the Christmas spirit!  We’ll be posting one a day so make sure to keep an eye out.

Doing something crafty is a great way to keep yourself busy if the weathers looking a bit miserable outside.  You could make your own wrapping paper, crackers or even cards for your friends.  We found these sophisticated yet simple examples of handmade cards online (via hgtv & Etsy), but you can go as ornate as you like.
