Santa Stop Here Sign - Download & Print

Tags:

All crafters know that it’s all about the finishing touches, and that’s no different when it comes to decorating for Christmas! We’ve produced our very own Santa Stop Here signs ready for you to print out at home so that the big man himself definitely turns up during the night – that’s if you’re on the nice list, of course. There are so many different things to do with this printable: laminate it and attach onto a wooden stick, stick it onto your window or place it on your front door. The grey background version is made to be cut out and if you fancy a bright background, then keep the green one as is! Now, get the mince pies, carrots and milk ready, and wait for Santa to arrive…

Vibrant Stencil Christmas Card

Tags:
advent2018, christmas, christmas card, instagram, stencil, stencilling,

Stencilling has become very popular in the craft world, especially when used with cardmaking and also for home décor. It’s easy to get started, a thin sheet, usually made from mylar with a design cut out, is laid onto a surface, then ink or paint applied using a brush or sponge. I have chosen a stencil with bold bauble images and teamed it up with bright, punchy colours to create a decorative background. The stencil uses an ingenious wheel, so that only one image is exposed at a time, meaning you are less likely to go over the edge and ruin your work. A simple sentiment is then added to create a bright, jolly card for Christmas.

Christmas is all about sitting down with the family and spending quality time with everyone. First comes the indulgent Christmas dinner, then comes the fun and games! We’ve made our very own game of bingo that you can play with the whole family. There are six sheets to download so you can have a maximum of six people/groups playing, then you’ll also need one person to pick out the cards (remember to cut out the final sheet into individual cards). The first to get five in a row wins – it couldn’t be easier!

Paper is such a versatile craft material – all you need is a flat sheet to create something that can be incredibly detailed. This pretty floral wreath is one such example, featuring multicoloured blooms that are scored and folded to create a 3-D effect. The technique takes a little while to master but once you’ve cracked it, the results are fascinating.
