Christmas Conversation Cards & Coasters


Want to spark fun, meaningful conversation during the holidays? My Christmas Coversation starters are perfect for just that! My cards are sized as 4x4 graphic images that are embedded into a simple-to-print PDF file. In all, there are 18 unique "Christmastime" questions designed to keep your family buzzing with Holiday chatter. How you "craft" your cards is up to you... however, I have the following two suggestions:


MAKE CONVERSATION CARDS

Simply print on white card stock, trim and laminate each card. Punch a hole in the top corner and secure with a clasping ring (available at any office store). Embellish the ring with ribbon and during your next meal, unclip the ring and pass cards around to get the conversation going!


OR... MAKE CONVERSATION COASTERS

To make Christmas Coasters, purchase 4x4 smooth ceramic tiles at your local hardware store. Apply a thin, even layer of mod podge and adhere image by smoothing with with outward strokes. Apply a layer of mod podge on top, then spray with a clear acrylic topcoat to seal. More detailed instructions are provided on page 1 of the printable.

These are a really good idea, and keeps the convo flowing for those "family" members you only see once a year or so!
