  1. Thanks for these great instructions! I am making a gold one for a Christmas tree bulletin board for church. It will say, "God in His goodness gave each of us different gifts." Merry Christmas!

One of my favorite times of year to craft for is Christmas. I do the bulk of crafting activities during the colder, winter seasons when I am stuck indoors more. Festive and Holiday crafts are always a lot of fun. I mostly love paper based crafts and fabric ones such as sewing with felt during this time to make decorations for the home and to gift. Thanks for leaving me a comment on Just Christmas Crafts. Comments will not show up until I approve them. Marie
