Christmas Card recycling

Christmas Card recycling Every year we love to both give and receive christmas cards, but with the rise of technology there are clearly fewer cards being sent year on year. Technology is brilliant and has revolutionised our lives but a digital card just doesn’t look the same hanging off the mantelpiece does it?! So each year, and I admit it is a challenge, I suggest/ask/encourage/browbeat/insist/threaten my little one to lovingly make our own cards. 🙂 But it’s not easy at all because with iplayer, youtube and minecraft all vying...

Cricut Christmas Cards (top tip)

Anyone even half crafty will reside within one of two categories – the ‘I have’ or the ‘I want’ a Cricut cutting machine. Here at MumsClub HQ we have acquired a most fabulous Cricut Explore, which in our opinion is the creme de la creme of cutting machines. We love this machine for a few reasons, one is that it will print as well as cut, but also that as well as satisfying that need for creating crafty stuff, you can realistically make a business out of it. We’ve been working on a few things to do with...
