Christmas Card Recycling Project Ideas

We got many Christmas cards every year and they are too beautiful to throw them away. Ours are just sitting in a box where I keep them every year. So, instead of just keeping them in the box or throwing them away, why don’t we recycle them into something pretty that we can share with others and/or we can use them as home decor?

  1. WOW and I mean WOW Helen! These are stunning and awesome ideas! Unfortunately I can’t turn any of the cards we received into something like these beauty since we only get the photo cards, you know of the family and cute pictures of their kids. I’m the only one that send out a traditional style Christmas cards to them! Haha. Hope your holiday was a good one and a very Happy new 2016 to you and your family!

    Hugs, Christina

    • Same here, Christina… 😀 We got mostly photo cards and they are cute! I am thinking to do something different with them this year. Still looking for some ideas.

      Blessings to you too!
