I got together with some of my favorite crafting buddies for the 2021 Holiday Showcase where we share great crafts to jumpstart your Holiday Season. Most of these crafts are made with using a cutting machine like the Cricut, but you can still cut many of them by hand.
For my project, I made a little Christmas Paper Village for Advent. The village is composed of 14 different houses that are actually little boxes which you can fill with treats or candy. And there is even a little green tree box as well.
My friend, Jen of the Well Crafted Studio, is a genius at making stickers. She has made the cutest layered stickers for the holiday for you. And you can get the free files for these gift tags and the tutorial here.
Laurie writes the craft blog, Craft Room Time, designed a delightful welcome sign for holiday guests. It's made of wood and HTV vinyl. What a great way to welcome your guests.
Maira writes about calligraphy and lettering. She designed several beautiful hand-lettered cards for the upcoming holidays. Her lettering is just exquisite. And not only that, she makes it look easy.
Natalie of NeliDesign.com designed these beautiful holiday pillows. They are so cute and brighten up any holiday decor.
For a truly unique and fun Christmas card, look at Jennifer Stahr's Christmas Explosion Card. It is seriously cool and different.
Jennifer is incredibly creative and has wonderful craft tutorials on her blog, My Scrap Menagerie.
If you like to make cards, these cards have an interesting detail - a cut out edge. These are great details that totally elevate your Holiday cards. You can see Sarah's tutorial for making these incredible cards. For more great crafts, go to Craft With Sarah.
And here's a way to make the most unique gift box. My friend, Emily of MinorDIY, makes incredible explosion boxes. What makes these explosion boxes so special is how beautifully they open up. In addition, Emily writes beautifully detailed tutorials so you can make them works just as well.
Molly of Molly Q Creates, designs scrapbook layouts. For this Holiday Showcase, she designed a scrapbook layout where you can display your Christmas cards.
Now, you know I love buildings and houses. So that means that Nick's Christmas Church Box card really appeals to me. I think you will like it too. Nick is one of my very favorite bloggers at the Bearded Housewife.
And my friend, Amy, makes the most incredible earrings with her Cricut. It's kind of amazing what she can do with her Cricut. To round out the designs in the Holiday showcase, see Amy's Hanukkah earrings.
If you like to make paper flowers, there is no better place to learn than from Abbi of Abbi Kirsten Collections. Her flowers are delightful and this paper Poinsettia arrangement project is wonderful. But the only thing is that these files are only free for one week.
Bette of BettesMakes, has lots of great paper crafts on her website. For the Holiday Showcase, she designed Spinning ornaments that are easy and quick to make.
So that's it - all the projects for the 2021 Holiday Showcase. I hope you can find inspiration here for your seasonal crafting.
