How to Upcycle Christmas Cards

How to Upcycle Christmas Cards

Don't pitch those Christmas cards just yet! In this project idea on How to Upcycle Christmas Cards, you can create new and beautiful items using holiday greeting cards.

From the blogger: "Christmas cards are just too pretty to throw away, so every year we collect the ones we have received and try to find ways to reuse and recycle them. Here you will find some ideas for tags, boxes, ornaments, and more. Having a die cutting machine with dies as well as a box-making template can be useful and time saving for making some of these items, but not mandatory. There are alternative suggestions listed what you can use instead in case you do not have these."

Estimated CostUnder $10

Are you the type that never wants to throw away a holiday card? I know I want to keep them all, but I am so tired of taping them all up to the wall and cleaning up the adhesive after the holidays are over. I love that you can turn them into ornaments or a showpiece for the coffee table. There are so many ideas, now I have to decide which ones I want to try first.
