More Recycled Christmas Card Idea's

This week I have been giving ideas on how to reuse Christmas cards.
Here are a few more ideas. . .

{ Framed Pictures }

I bought these frames for $1.50 each at Michaels.
I applied a fun snowflake button to give it some extra cuteness.



{ Christmas Gift Tags }

Cut out a rectangle and trim the top edges.
I used a paper punch for the circles.
Use a small hole punch at the top and tie on some string.




{ New Cards} 

You can also make Christmas cards out of old cards.
Cut out the part of the card that you want to use
and glue it onto some folded card stock.
I added some embellishments for a little extra something.




So you can save money by making your own cards from recycled cards :)

Have a wonderful weekend!

The christmas cards in frames are a great idea, I always put mine up on the mantel but the all fall off with any breeze that comes along.

Hi Stephanie...I love your framed cards. I re-use cards, too.
One year I cut circles out of old Christmas cards, glued two circles together(picture sides out).....then I put 9 of these in a sleeve and laminated them. I then cut around them, leaving a clear edge.....punched a hole and hung them in garlands from the ceiling.....They looked like they were floating...
Have a good day

Whenever I save Christmas cards to recycle, I can never find the safe place that I put them in the year before - only to find them in January!!
Your cards are fabulous!
