Packed with inspiration and how-tos for ideas that are family-friendly and eco-conscious, festive and meaningful, A Homemade Christmas will put homemade back into your holidays!
I'm not the most creative person and it's extremely difficult for me to do something with my hands. But I like to do homemade cards and stuff like that. Actually, my other hobby besides reading is scrapbooking.

I was thinking to do some homemade cards for this Christmas but didn't know how to do them easily and cute. But then I found this book and thought it would be good to read it. Since the beginning I love it. The homemade cards were so easy to do that I wanted to buy supplies right away!

You will find more than how to make cards....for example, you will find cute decorations for your house (origami),  how to grow a holiday plant (maybe it's stupid, but all of my plants die), and cooking. Not all of them are extremely original or impressive, but they are easy to do and a bunch of them are kid friendly.

Overall, if you want to try doing hand made cards or else, but you aren't very creative, you should check out this book. The ideas are original, and most important, easy!
