Homemade Christening Cards
It can be more meaningful to give your loved ones a handmade christening card, instead of one that is pre-made. (Cross image by Pavel Klimenko from Fotolia.com)

A baby's christening is an important event for the entire family, and should be celebrated as such. If you are going to give a family a christening card, you may be tempted to purchase a pre-made card from a supermarket or card store. However, these cards can often be generic and may not express the depth of your feeling. One alternative is to create a handmade christening card using craft materials and art supplies.
