These fun-to-make creative designs show you how to make Christmas wreaths with unexpected shapes, dazzling colors, and out-of-the-ordinary materials.View Slideshow
Capture the memories of your little one's first holiday with these keepsake projects both parents and baby will cherish forever.
Create a keepsake ornament featuring your little one's precious face. Using a circle paper punch, punch a hole in the center of a piece of card stock to create a frame. Tape a photo to the back so Baby's face shows through the circle. Punch another circle from a square of colored paper and adhere it so it surrounds the first hole. Knot a ribbon through two holes at the top of the card stock to create a hanger.
