Craft Corner: Christmas Cards & Decorations

*I’m a Bostik Craft Blogger and we were sent a box of crafts from Bostik in order to create these items.

Dare I ask how the excitement levels are for Christmas in your house? It may not be December yet but I certainly have two very excited boys who are hyped up about all things Christmas. We have decided to try and save money where we can this year and make our own cards and gifts where we can. Handmade Christmas cards always go down well with friends and family as it shows you’ve put a little more thought into them too.

Here are some easy card and decoration ideas that you can create yourself at home.
