How elegant! Now, what are your colors please?


I sometimes use blue and silver shiny paper or just traditional origami paper. The hard part is cutting tiny squares, but once you get the hang of it, the folding is easy.

Update: I can't tell exactly what's all involved in the holiday card (company privacy policy), but the general concensus of the company was to use an image of my sockmonkey costume making a snow-angel. I can't think of how a sockmonkey in snow couldn't be neutral... maybe the angel part, but hey, what kid (that's seen snow) has never flapped their arms and legs around in it? Does that pass?

The sockmonkey costume is certainly making it's rounds these days...

Well, here's someone with the same idea:

So you can order them from her, featuring real sockmonkeys.


Our card is different, a person sized sockmonkey in a suit (my avatar). We'll actually be tearing all of our cards in half, don't ask, maybe I'll post pictures of the final product when it's all over.

Wow, that site is great although the 'Be Mine' cards are horrifying.

Holy crap those sock monkey cards are the best! I think a group of sock monkeys sledding is a great non-bias way to say Happy Holidays!

On a side note, after saving every christmas card I have ever gotten for the past oh 7 or 8 years. I have decided to recycle them into new cards, using the fronts I am going to cut out shapes and glue them to plain note cards (that I think I am going to print a personal message on the inside), I am also going to make gift tags from all the recycled cards as well, plus my boys are going to make ornaments, havent figured out how yet, I am thinking of punching small holes all the way around a cut out and having them lace ribbon or yarn through the holes, or laminating them with contact paper with glitter in between. Still tossing ideas around.
