Christmas Card Repurpose~

   Every year while doing the after Christmas clean-up I look at the beautiful pile of Christmas cards that I received. Most years I end up keeping the homemade ones, sometimes reusing them. Some years I make some Christmas tags for the next year. But I thought this year I would try to go above and beyond with a couple more ideas.

So here is what I started with:

So the first thing I did was cut out some cute little hearts from some of the glitter cards and with some red string, I strung them into a sweet little garland of hearts.

My next project used those cards that have a bit of a frame around the image. I made little gift boxes. Great for in a stocking or putting gift cards into.

This one I do almost every year, and that is to make gift tags. Something you will always need.

And last but not least the remaining cards I cut all to a similar size. Then I bound them and created this sweet little mini book. A great place to put all those mini photos that you get in your cards or other Christmas memories!

Some Christmas cards are just TOO pretty to get rid of! There are lots of great ideas online on how to repurpose them!
