There is a crisp in the air, and leaves are beginning to fall. Autumn is definitely here. This is the best season for crafting. It is too chilly to be outside for too long, and you can be well prepared for the holidays. One of the most productive and enjoyable ways of passing the time during fall is to make your own stationery.
There are so many things you can do with basic stationery supplies, arts and crafts supplies, and a lot of imagination. Make something for an upcoming event or for the holidays. What you make and how you make it are entirely up to you. That is the fun of creating your own stationery. Get started by finding basic stationery at invitationbox.com or a similar website. You can then customize the stationery in any way you like.
One idea is to make holiday cards so that they are ready for mailing when December arrives. Making your own holiday cards is great because it lets people know you care enough to put something of yourself into the card, rather than just buying a generic card. It also provides you with an opportunity to get the whole family in on the fun, giving each member of the family a job to do. This way the card is truly from your whole family to theirs.
Another idea is to make birthday or fall party invitations. Invitations you make yourself are much more fun and exciting. You can make them three dimensional, interactive, and enjoyable for the other children to receive. If you want to have a seasonal party to celebrate the coming of fall or Halloween, you can make invitations for that as well. These invitations are even more fun to make, because you can personalize each invitation for the person receiving it. For a child’s invitation you might include a 3D ghost that pops out of the card, while for an adult’s invitation you might have a picture of a zombie.
Finally, one of the best ways to use your time is in creating gifts to give out when the holidays arrive. You can make stationery such as thank you cards, get well cards, and birthday cards, and give the set to someone you care about for the holidays. You will get great satisfaction in making the stationery, and the person receiving it will appreciate having hand made stationery to celebrate their own life events.
