The season to be jolly is rolling in and Christmas cards are all over the place. You can get these cards and use them as last minute gifts or even invitations for that Christmas dinner you are planning to have for you and your friends and family. You can buy mass-produced cards, after all these are the most convenient. However, if you prefer to get something that is more personalized, especially if you want the greeting cards to contain something special like a small holiday greeting, you can get customized greeting cards made for you at a special stationary shop or on the internet.

DIY Craft Essential #1: Washi tape

You'd be surprised at how many things you can do, and how many tutorials out there are obsessed, with washi tape. The versatile paper tape with adorable designs makes great wall decor, paper crafts or can even spruce up your furniture.

DIY Craft Essential #2: Needle nose pliers

This tiny tool is great for small projects. "This is not only your go­-to tool for opening and closing jump rings, bending wire, and securing crimp beads and ribbon ends, but pliers are also great for cutting through jewelry chain and wire," said Morin.

Getting customized Christmas cards from a store is easy. There are a lot of special stationary shops that offer customized greeting card designing and printing services. All you need to do when you get there is browse through their catalogue of greeting card designs and templates. Ask for the holiday or Christmas themed catalogue to make it easier for you to choose a design that fits the holiday theme. You can then personalized it by asking them to add a personalized message on the card. After choosing a design, they make a sample copy of what your card will look like. Then if everything is good, the shop can start printing the Christmas cards by bulk. A down side of having the cards made at these specialty shops is that they can become too costly.

DIY Craft Essential #3: X-acto knife

If you love stationary crafts, jewelry crafts or any delicate work -- you'll need a proper cutting tool. Not all scissors can do the job. "Remember first using scissors and cutting along the dotted lines in grade school?" Morin asked. "Hopefully, you’re attempting more challenging crafts as an adults."

DIY Craft Essential #4: Spray paint

Acrylic paints are also great for any DIY starter kit. However, if you're looking for a perfect, seamless finish on your furniture, art and home decor -- make some space to spray. It doesn't hurt to keep some cans in your favorite colors (as long as you store them properly).

One way for you to cut cost on customized xmas cards is to get them online. Printable cards are available on sites that have card makers. Basically, it's the same as getting the cards at the shop. You pick out a design, edit it, add your personal touch to it and then print it out. However, using these online card makers means that you don't have to wait until they send you a sample of the card. You can see what the card looks like as you edit it. If you don't like the change you made, you can just press undo or the back button and it goes back to how it originally looked like.

Whether you get them at the shop or make the cards yourself. You will have fun picking out the designs, personalizing them, and watch them turn to the perfect Christmas cards to give out. customized Christmas cards will make anyone smile, knowing that you went the extra mile by getting them personalized.

DIY Craft Essential #5: Painter's tape

Painter's tape is "perfect for for attempting the c​olor block trend," said Morin. Plus, you'll need something to keep your projects neat and tidy, no matter what type of paints you use.

DIY Craft Essential #6: Hot glue gun

There are some tools that are too functional not to have. "This is one DIY workhorse tool you shouldn't do without," said Morin. Hot melt glue works on a variety of materials.
