Today I found some lovely, small Christmas card sets at the Tuesday Morning store where I live. They are very old-fashioned designs (Victorian/early 20th century), very lovely, and I bought them because I’d like to create some Christmas decorations as gifts using these cards.
One idea I had was to use grosgrain ribbon and attach the different cards to make a wall hanging (each box has six designs, four of each). I also thought about using them to make paper Christmas tree ornaments (which I love), or as gift tags (the cards are all blank inside). These cards are very good quality.
I was wondering if your readers could submit ideas for making gifts out of recycled (or in my case, new) Christmas cards. The cards I bought today cost only $3.65 for 24 cards. I’m not the most creative person, but I know many of your readers have great ideas. And now is the time to submit these ideas for the holidays.
I would appreciate your thoughts on this! Thanks very much.
Any suggestions, readers? We use them to decorate the front of Christmas presents and to make tags for Christmas presents. Do you have any other suggestions?
