PRINT YOUR OWN ENVELOPES, CARDS, GIFT BAGS, TAGS AND BOXES

I'm trawling the 'net for Christmassy frugal stuff and today I've found printable templates for a 4.5" x 6" envelope (pdf), a santa gift tag (and more), a snowman giftcard, a santa Christmas card, gift bag printables in all designs, and a lovely "friends" card and a Christmas tree card ideal for children to send. Some of the designs are photo images and some are drawn designs which could be livened up with gold or silver pen lines, or a sprinkle of glitter or frosting to enhance them. Another idea is to make tiny ribbon bows from narrow ribbon if you have it (I use the ribbon loops that I've cut from from the shoulders of clothing), and glue to the corner of your card.
Tip - some of the templates are pdf. and some are just images you can save as a jpg. file, but as over time, websites change or disappear, it's probably good to save these on your computer for next year!
Happy frugal crafting!
