Upcycling Christmas Cards

Christmas cards are a timeless seasonal tradition and I’ve put together a few ideas for making use of them after the holidays are over.


A quick and easy way to recycle old cards is to make gift tags! All you need are some scissors or pinking shears (these give a prettier finish), a hole punch and some ribbon or string! Cut tag shapes out of your Christmas cards, punch a hole near the top, loop your ribbon or string through the hole and tie a knot to secure – all done!

‘Artichoke Ornaments’ – All Things Paper

Another lovely way to upcycle Christmas cards, is by making these gorgeous artichoke ornaments. This tutorial used a flower painting book but cards will work just as well. Find out how to make these at allthingspaper.net

Wishing you all Happy Holidays and a wonderful New Year!
