If you own a business, giving out holiday greeting cards to loyal clients and prospective ones is a great way to leave a great impression on them. It builds rapport, makes everybody feel special, and you can customize the cards to help market your business. These greeting cards may be simple, but they can help you grow closer with your customers and even help keep them loyal. So where do you get these business greeting cards? You can get them at special stationary and card making shops, but there is a very big chance that it's going to take forever since it's a very busy time. The best thing to do is to get customized cards online.

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 holiday greeting cards means that you decide what they will look like. If you want a simple greeting card, you can just pick out a design that is commonly seen during the holidays, or you can pick out a ready-made theme on websites and add your businesses logo on the corner with a short and simple holiday greeting. If you want something more special, you can edit the designs on the site to whatever you see fit. Some sites even let you upload photos, which means that you can upload a picture of your businesses physical location and edit it to look like holiday greeting cards. You can even add your tagline, contact number and address, and your products and services on the greeting card.

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).

The benefits of handing out holiday greeting cards to customers are that these cards make them feel special and it is a big plus for customer service. Think of it as giving back something to your faithful customers in a simple but unforgettable way. You can get the greeting cards printed in bulk since you can just use them next year if there are some left over. When making them, look for sites that offer packages that might let you choose different designs so that you can have variety. Besides just being greeting cards, make them more useful by printing the next year's calendar at the back, cutting it to make a bookmark, and even turn it into a calling card. You can find so many uses for these greeting cards.

You do not really have to hire a professional artist to create your holiday greeting cards. By going online, you can start making you personalized holiday greeting cards without having to worry about time and money.

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.
