Getting Crafty with Christmas Cards

5 ways to craft with Christmas cardsAs my grandpa used to say, I was on the slow boat to China with this post, especially because all I have seen lately are Valentine’s Day posts. But, we FINALLY took down all of our Christmas decorations. We have had a naked tree sitting in our living room for a few days and I was so glad to see it get packed away in its box until next Christmas!

While putting away all of our decorations, I also take some time to read through the Christmas cards again. I always feel bad tossing them out, but I really have no idea what to do with them and we definitely do not need anymore clutter in our house. So I got to thinking of what types of craft projects I could use them for and here are 5 ways to get crafty with those old cards!

  • Embellish a kraft paper wrapped gift
  • Use as a gift tag
  • Cut them into strips to make a Christmas tree (or any other shape)
  • Make a Christmas puzzle for kids
  • Frame

It would also be fun to save cards from each year in a box and pull them out to make some projects to kick-start the Christmas season!
