Christmas is here and everyone has been sending you a holiday card and you probably have a stack sitting in a basket or your kitchen counter, right? Although many people try to go paperless these days, there are still many that send holiday cards. The hubby and I have sent a holiday card every year since we’ve been a couple (even when we were just dating!). I hate to be the cause of paper clutter in someone else’s life so if you are reading this and received a card from us, please know it is okay to recycle it! For those of you that like to keep holiday cards, here are 20+ things to do with Christmas cards.
Display them in your home during the holiday season
Attach cards to garland framing a doorway (source: BHG)
Repurpose them into crafts
DIY an ornament like Scoutie Girl did HERE
Craft photo ornaments like Clover Lane
Make a holiday garland like Party Planning Center HERE
Or try this simple Christmas garland from Learning 4 Kids
Make these bookmarks like The Frugal Girls.
Try making DIY placemats or coasters using old cards (source: Wiki How)
Make rubriks cube like If I Had a Million Hours
Create a keepsake
Turn old cards into a DIY photo album like Simple Made Pretty
Make a holiday photo collage sign (source: Pinterest)
Use them next Christmas
Use them to make an advent calendar like Craftastica
Make boxes to use for gifts next year like Studio Artworks
Make Christmas cards from the old card like Happy Strong Home
These are some great ideas and I think I’m going to try a few of these out for myself this year!
