I like this technique, not just for Christmas: Cut up pieces of colored tissue paper. Glue them onto a sheet of white paper.  2. Cut this sheet of paper into triangles to make the trees.  3. Paint another sheet of paper with three stripes of watercolor.  4. After the watercolor has dried, glue the trees onto this paper.  5. With marker draw branches and grass.  6. Use a paper punch to cut out white snow. by Asmodel

Leaf Glitter: These dimensional drawings are made using leaves from your yard, lending them the subtle colors of late autumn. With a pencil, sketch a simple shape on card stock. A design with just a few lines and lots of space works best. Collect dry leaves in a bag and crush them into small pieces with your hands. Draw over the pencil lines with glue, then sprinkle on the leaf pieces. Let the glue dry, then gently tap the paper to remove any loose pieces. by lindsey

GENIUS. Paint pages, make it easy to say “yes” to painting, take them when you travel, hikes or picnics!  All you need is some  watercolor paper and small squirt of watercolor paint (don't need much water color paint goes a long way plus it won't stain clothes, pretty much washes out of most everything). allow a few days to dry. Then when you are ready to paint just add water. by luisa

Easy Envelopes for Handmade Cards .Directions:
1. Lay your card diagonally on a square piece of paper that's just a little larger than your card on each side.  (If you make your card from an 8 1/2” x 11” or 9” x 12” paper folded in half, then a 12” x 12” square will work perfectly for the envelope.  For a small 4” x 5” card, a 7” x 7” square will work well.)
2. Fold each side up over the card, beginning with one of the shorter sides and ending with one of the longer sides.  If you lightly “score” your envelope (with your fingernail or a paper clip) along the edges of the card it will make it easier to fold.
3. Remove the card and unfold your envelope.  Cut away the triangles where the fold lines cross.  You can round the top corner with scissors if you want.
4. Now fold the sides in and fold the bottom flap up over them.  Cut the point off the bottom flap and glue the sides of the bottom flap to the lower edges of the side flaps.
5. To finish, put your card back inside and glue the top down or seal it closed with a sticker by Maiden11976

Coat the table with decoupage glue, position the paper, and cover it with several layers of decoupage glue. (Allow each coat to dry before applying the next.) Finish the top with a spray sealant. by alambra
