Made some greeting cards using carving rubber and ink pads
As part of our holiday tradition, we usually make handmade wrapping paper to spend some quality time together and to save money. I do hope that that statement didn’t sound too pretentious. I make stuff because I enjoy crafty things.
Gift tags for my family written in my own hand using a Brause Nib
We usually wrap our presents before flying home but I don’t think we will have time to do that tomorrow before our flight on Sunday. I’m glad I found some time to make some gift tags for my family and in-laws’ gifts so at least there will be a handmade touch to our presents.

What Christmas crafts are you doing for your loved ones?
Every now and then we offer free printables here in our blog and for Christmas you can download this free digital printable for the whole month of December. It took me a few hours to come up with the design and illustrate this card and we’re giving it away but there is a catch.
Pay It Forward this Christmas
This is a Pay It Forward thing and we’d like you to do something nice for someone in need or make a donation worth $5 to the charity of your choice. Let’s make an effort to spread some joy this festive season.
We’d love to hear what nice thing or good deed you’ve done for this Pay It Forward card.
Handmade gifts are always the best and to help you make your present to your love ones this year, I’ve created six different patterns for you to use in your personal projects. This is the first time I’ve designed a printable pattern based on what I think are the icons of Valentine’s Day. Hop over at Pretty Paper Things to download these goodies.
We’ve created some gift tags for the holiday season so we can personalize our gifts to our loved ones. Last weekend, we had a gift exchange with friends. We made our own wrapping paper using some handmade stamps and colorful stamp pads that we made for last year’s craft party.
