Holiday Paper Crafts Roundup

As all of the chaos surrounding the holidays begins to die down, I start thinking about little crafts that I can make during the last few days before Christmas. Ornaments are almost always on my list because they’re usually not as involved a craft, and if you can make several in a short period of time then they may even serve as additional embellishment for those last few gifts that you have to wrap. Here’s a little roundup of some of the ornament and small packaging crafts that have caught my eye this season, and I hope that you’ll find one or more that catch your eye, too.
