A couple of weeks ago, we shared a crafty piece of inspiration for your left-over Christmas Cards and showed you how to create your very own crafty star. So we thought we’d continue the theme of home-made decorations made from printed products, and this time I was inspired by Chinese paper lanterns, and I realised they sort of look like baubles, too!
This craft is really straightforward to make; you don’t even need any glue, so it’s less messy! You’ll just need 2 greeting cards, a hole-puncher, a pencil, a ruler, 2 paper fasteners, 1 piece of string.
Here’s how to …Continue reading this article…
Last month we showcased some innovative Christmas and Holiday Cards that MOO Creative Director Matt G tracked down. This got us thinking; there must be hundreds of wonderful designs out there in the big wide world that Matt simply wouldn’t have time to track down by himself. So we asked our friends on Facebook and Twitter to show us what they’d seen or created.
We got so many responses that there’s simply not enough blog space to hold them all! We’ve picked just a selection of designs that really caught our eye. Without further ado, here are our top picks:
We loved …Continue reading this article…
Have you ever wondered what to do with your Holiday Cards once you’ve taken them down from your mantle-piece? Or wondered what to do with the left over cards from your pack after you’ve mailed all your friends and clients?
This star is made purely from Christmas Cards and a little glue, could make a great addition to your festive decorations and even squashes flat without breaking, so it can be sent to friends in the mail as an alternative greeting or crafty gift.
Here’s how to make your very own Holiday Card star. We’ve made the template available …Continue reading this article…
We just launched a new range of Greeting Card packs, and we’re rather pleased with them. It occurred to us, though, that we’re not the only ones who come up with creative designs. We’d absolutely love to see the cool company greetings you’ve sent and received or simply stumbled upon. You can share your finds with us by posting them on our Facebook page or by Tweeting them to us @overheardatmoo.
To get us started, we turned to Matt G – MOO’s very own creative guru (and fashion guru, have you seen those jumpers?) He thought he’d have a look around for how companies …Continue reading this article…
It seems like only yesterday I was stuffing my face with Easter eggs, yet we’re already preparing for Christmas! (In fairness, I WAS stuffing my face with Easter eggs. They had turned a little white, but when a man on the corner is selling chocolate from a supermarket trolley at a ridiculous discount, you buy it!)
The rest of my family is back in Australia, so what’s the best way to remind them that I miss them and that I’m not jealous of the amazing, sunny, delicious BBQ they’ll be having? Christmas Cards!
I’ve always liked things that have more than one use. I’m also a big fan of fancy dress. So naturally, when I was coming …Continue reading this article…
Christmas seems to creep up on all of us every year. We all know it’s coming, yet it’s always a shock on Christmas eve when you’ve still got to find the perfect present for your friends, family and of course, your office Secret Santa.
The same goes for cards – what to put on them, who to send them to, and indeed when to send them. You don’t want to get caught in the postal rush just before Christmas and have your card turn up in January. And you certainly don’t want to be the one sending festive wishes in September!
As we may have told you a couple times before, we absolutely love looking through all the photos of your MOO creations posted on our Facebook wall and in our Flickr pool. Recently (can’t think why) we’ve found our eyes particularly drawn to Christmas Cards. We’ve come across some great examples out there and, since we’re the sharing type, you know what that means – round up time!
