Tips/Ideas:

*Remember when layering paper to avoid using a glittery base. Paper glued on top of glittery paper doesn’t stick too well because of the glitter. I’m sure there are ways around this – but sometimes, it’s best to avoid a glittery base. However, if the glittery paper will be your top layer, have fun and bling it up!!

*On this card, if you don’t want your present to have any text on it, simply decorate it with stripes, polka dots, Christmas shapes, etc.

*Check at your local dollar store for bargains on Christmas ribbon, stickers, embellishments, etc.

*Merry Christmas – Jesus is the reason for the season!
