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.

You can also check shops that make wedding invitations, most of the time, they also have greeting card printing services. At the shops, you are usually given a catalogue of the different designs, prints, papers, inks and other details that you can pick out for your holiday greeting cards.

A way for you to get customized greeting cards for a lot less is by going online and look for printable designs.

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).

Printable holiday greeting cards are offered in sites that have card makers. These sites, like the special stationary shops, let you choose the design, theme, color, and other details of the card. You type down a message and the card maker pulls everything up for you, letting you see how the card will look like as you are making it. You can also upload a photo to the site and use it to make a photo greeting card. Some sites would even let you print out the cards yourself, which is a big benefit if you just want a few copies.

Whether you are getting your holiday greeting cards ordered at the shop or online, you can use these cards for so many things. You can turn your holiday greeting cards into tags for gifts that you are going to be giving out for Christmas, a marketing strategy for your business, and invitation for a holiday party and many more.
