There is just something extra special about a handmade gift. Often we are pulled in so many directions during the holiday season it can be difficult to find time to make something for everyone on your gift list. This simple craft strikes a great balance for creating something unique and handmade!

Start with:

  • Sketch or doodle book
  • Pen/pencil
  • Colored cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Paper Fasteners
  • Single hole paper punch (optional)

Create it!

Step 1: Draw holly leaves and berries on corresponding colored cardstock.
