list of craft supplies for holiday decorating and gift-making

Handmade treasures are a great symbol of the spirit of Christmas:  they are best when shared with friends and family, they become a simple yet meaningful decoration for your holiday home, and they offer lots of time during assembly for refection on the season.  Making time for crafts with your spouse, your children, and your extended family can become a tradition of laughter and productivity.  Crafts can be useful for wrapping gifts, labeling gifts, mailing to friends, decorating a home or a tree, hanging in windows, adorning gifts, and/or wrapping up for loved ones as gifts.
