How to Make a Box From Recycled Christmas Cards

Easy

I have a really hard time letting go of all the holiday cards we receive in the mail each year. I hate to throw them away, so I always try to reuse them in someway. My favorite use is to make these tiny gift boxes out of the cards!
These little boxes are so easy to make and only require a pencil, ruler, scissors, and some clear tape.

Separate the 2 sides of the card and make your measurements.

Cut the flaps and fold up all of the edges and secure with tape!

I love to use these boxes to give the kids' homemade ornaments away in. I have also used them as gift boxes for jewelry. You can also use it for decorating under small Christmas trees or for advent calendar treats.

    Very cute boxes! If you didn't want to use the signed part of the card, you could always just use another card front for the inside.
