Handmade Christmas Invitations
One of the best things about living in a real house, as opposed to an apartment, is having reasonable space to host holidays for my rather large family. This year, we are hosting Christmas! And, to kick things off I wanted to make some handmade invitations.
All the materials and supplies I used were things I had here already. I'm in a bit of a "stash busting" season currently so it worked out perfectly. I started with a few sheets of an off white 12x12 piece of cardstock. I used a simple tree rubber stamp and a few shades of green and stamped a random "pattern" all over the page. Then I cut the paper to approximately 5.5in x 8inches and scored them so that the pattern was on the inside of the card.
So that's it! A small pile of handmade invitations done in a few hours time. It was a simple project that had a big impact that has me totally pumped for the holidays! I am so excited to have our new home filled with our loved ones this Christmas!
