A wonderful way to add a sprinkling of handmade charm to any celebration, here at The Range we’ve got all the desirable Christmas Craft Essentials to help your next DIY project stand out.
Designed to help any keen crafter shape and sculpt the perfect pattern, our extensive collection of dies and die cutting machines are guaranteed to work wonders. With plenty of designs to choose from, it’s never been easier to add layers of festive charm to any item of handiwork.

Much like die-cutting, embossing is another stunning way to add a flurry of wintry wonder to any handmade card, decoration, or invitation this Christmas.

Great for those that are looking to create something truly unique and personalised, here at The Range our impressive selection of paper, card, and foam packs are sure to inspire creativity.
Ideal for creating backdrops, wintery scenes, and adding layers of texture when combined with the use of Dies and Embossing Folders, Paper Packs are a wonderful and highly versatile way to ensure your piece of handiwork stands out.
With seasonal designs filled with snowmen, wreaths, and softly-falling snowflakes, these must-have crafting essentials are guaranteed to help ensure your hard work really stands out on the mantelpiece.
When you’ve gathered all the essentials needed to help you create your picture-perfect design, here are a few handy tips worth remembering:
1. Always Leave Space for Writing – There’s nothing worse than creating a wonderful design then realising there’s no space for well-wishes. To avoid this, always make a note of where you’re going to add text and then work around that area.
2. Experiment with Portrait and Landscape Layouts – Don’t be shy to try out different orientations when it comes to designing your cards. Why not opt for a landscape scene or even a portrait-orientated dangling bauble design!
3. Don’t Be Afraid to Create Multiple Versions of The Same Design – There’s nothing wrong with copying the same design but adding a sprinkling of something different each time. If you’re proud of it, then why not flaunt it!
4. Ensure You Leave Plenty of Time for Creativity – Once you know what you’re going to create, ensure you leave ample time to plan and carry out the process. There’s nothing worse than a rushed design.
