  • Re-cycling Christmas cards

    Do any of you re-cycle them? If so, how? I want to re-cycle mine but can only think of gift tags? Perhaps some nice ribbon attached to the hole...what do you think?

    Bookmarks? Or if you have a few of the same you could cut around the pattern and decoupage them up and make one superduper one...

      OK sorry I'm not allowed to post a link

      Search all free crafts.com or google recycled christmas cards bauble (which is what I did) I thought it was worth it. Sorry about the link thing?

          Oh Thank you for helping, I thought I'd done something wrong LOL

          OK if you add christmas/card-ornaments.shtml to that address you should be able to find them - I thought they were nice.

          Thanks again for the help. xoxo

          Oh by the way this is a great thread, I'd like to find as many answers to the Christmas card thing as possible myself.

                That made me laugh, cos I remember being at primary school and using the fronts of old Christmas, birthday, etc cards where the date and pages of your reading book were written down for homework and your parents had to sign it - I'd forgotten about that til I saw that suggestion lol.

                Ahhh... the memories!!

                  Thanks for sharing the All Free Crafts website... I'm just looking through the ideas just now and I really like the placemat idea, and may make something like this in a photo collage of placemate and coaster for my elderly grandmothers birthday in January.

                  There are lots of fab designs and ideas on the site - definitely a site for my favourites!!

                        Hi....doing a 2009 challenge and going to make all the christmas cards into a journal but it could be a photo/scrapbooking album using coptic stitch and kitchen roll paper as the cover
                        info on how to do will be on my blog for the 1st Jan
                        Good luck with what you decided to do with them

                          Probably going to do the usual. Feed a few to the Gerbils and give the rest to the kids to turn into next years cards and tags!

                            I make origami gift boxes out of the old cards.

                            You can google "how to make an origami box" and tins of You Tube videos come up.

                              Here are some examples of what I do with recycled greeting cards


                              These are what I call "cut and stick" boxes, but they are very straight forward and quick to make.





                              With thanks to Jo Lovejoy for templates for the bags and the pyramid cards.

                              I also make tags, and new cards out of interesting bits and pieces from used cards. These all work well for greeting cards for any occasion.
