Posted January 13, 2018 05:53:50 If you love holiday ornamentation, you should definitely check out this post on How to Make Holiday Stationery for the Holiday Season.
The tips and techniques below will help you create a truly beautiful Christmas ornament from scratch.
The Holiday Stationary Set:If you are not a big fan of using stationery or just don’t want to spend money on a lot of different things, you can still use this post as a guide to find the perfect stationery set for your needs.
The first step is to figure out what you want to display.
For me, it was a few simple Christmas trees and a few cute little lights.
The tree was the perfect size for my room, so I used a 4′ x 6′ cardstock frame that I found on Amazon.
I then attached the tree to a large white foam board.
The lights were placed at the top and bottom, and the light at the center was positioned just above the light.
The cardstock would have held up to a full year of normal use.
I would definitely recommend buying a lot more than you think you need, though.
I had a lot in the first year, but the next year I had an overwhelming amount of leftover paper.
I also ended up spending $50 for a single cardstock that I had cut myself using a knife.
After you have decided on the stationery items, it’s time to add your materials.
I used an old Christmas ornament that I got for my birthday from a thrift store and I used cheap paper towels.
If you’re not sure how to use them, here are some tips to help you out.
First, choose a stationery material that is durable.
I bought a cheap, light gray cardstock for the Christmas tree, but you can use anything you want.
If I had to choose between a brown cardstock and a white one, I would have chosen the brown one.
The color was a bit of a compromise, though, because I was not thrilled with the gray one.
I did find that a few people were a little more concerned with the brown ones than with the white ones.
The next step is determining the amount of paper to use.
It’s best to use the cheapest, most durable paper you can find, like cardstock, but feel free to experiment.
If the paper is not cheap, you may be better off going with a less expensive paper that is more durable.
For the Christmas ornament, I used this inexpensive piece of paper: This cardstock is made from recycled cardboard, so it is environmentally friendly.
It also makes a great gift!
I also tried this one: The quality of this cardstock was very good, and I was very impressed with how well it held up over time.
The colors were really vibrant, and there was no color bleeding through.
This paper was a little thicker than the others I tried, so you might need to use a smaller square if you plan to make a big display.
The white cardstock made a great Christmas ornament.
The other paper was also really durable, and was great for a Christmas tree.
You can use the same cardstock in the other projects in this guide.
The next step was to make the base.
This was my favorite part!
I used leftover paper from the Christmas decorations, as well as scrap paper from my sewing machine, which I also purchased online for free.
I made the base out of a mix of white, brown, and black cardstock.
The base will hold up for years, and will look great in the Christmas display.
I found that the best way to create a strong base is to create the base in a spiral pattern.
The paper I used was the same color as the Christmas trees, so all I had was a spiral.
Once I got the base on, I cut out the pattern and then traced around the sides and corners of the base with a marker.
Then I used the top piece to secure the base into place.
I was a huge fan of my original base because it held together well, and it was sturdy.
You could also just use the base as is, but I liked the way it held.
This way, I could use it to make smaller, more personalized pieces.
I am going to leave the rest of the decorations in place, so that I can share the final product with you.
If anyone has any questions about making your own, let me know!
The last piece of the Christmas show was a tiny cardstock Christmas tree from my grandmother’s yard.
The design was simple, but it worked beautifully.
You can find this project on Etsy for $1.49, but if you really want a piece that will be treasured for years to come, check out my post about How to Build a Christmas Tree from Scratch.
The last thing to do before you can start making decorations is to put all of the paper together.
