Make-It-Yourself projects have become such a prominent focus among crafters and non-crafters alike, so we thought it would be fun to expand this special issue of CardMaker to include a wider variety of homemade, handmade projects. While our motto is traditionally specific to card making—“Handcrafted Greetings for All of Life’s Occasions” is our motto after all—we wanted to expand on that a bit and incorporate gifts, gift packaging, memory crafts and home decor projects for the upcoming holiday season.
We invited some of our favorite card makers to join us on this MIY craft adventure, and we’re thrilled to say they went above and beyond our expectations to create this collection of amazing projects. You’ll find cards that are quick and easy to create (perfect for making multiples in no time!), creative gift tags and gift packaging ideas, pretty home decor projects to use for your own holiday decorating or to give as special gifts, and mini albums to collect your favorite holiday memories and photos.
We hope the time you put into creating these projects brings you as much enjoyment as we’ve experienced putting it together for you! If you’d like to share photos of your works in progress or finished projects, please connect with us at our Facebook (CardMaker) or Instagram (Cardmaker_ Magazine) pages! We’d love to meet you there.
Happy MIY crafting and card making!
Until next time,
