Do It Yourself

Computer gift guides seem to be even shorter-lived than the holiday season. New games come out, new operating systems take hold, the must-have gadget of 2000 turns into the broken hunk of plastic gathering dust in 2002. Fortunately, computer-based crafting outlasts many of the tools one can use when crafting. Read on for last-minute inspiration:

  • Stock up on art supplies -- we compiled a list of valuable crafting resources you can order online.
     
  • Take a crash course in digital image manipulation, then get some last-minute holiday inspiration from our " Crafty Creations " feature. We show you how to transfer images to cards, calendars -- even t-shirts.
     
  • Eschew the usual holiday table settings for something a little more personalized.
     
  • Begin building your own vast domestic empire by crafting name-brand packaging with a personal brand called "you."
     
  • Design greeting cards that look like they're a lot more work than they actually are.
     
  • Then, create beautifully wrapped packages that are as much a gift as the contents within.
     
  • More comfortable working in a pixel-only environment? Then hone your movie-making skills and add the special touch of a personalized package to your masterpiece.
