Recycling Christmas Cards!

3 Materials
10 Minutes

There are, oh so, many ways to recycle old Christmas Cards. Today I’m going to show you my favorite way to preserve Holiday Cards from years passed.

It's Cynthia at Create With Cynthia and preserving holiday cards is memorable.

I take all the cards I receive and for each year, I make a little book. Then I put all the books into a Christmas Box. During Christmas time, I pull out my box of previous years “received” Holiday Cards and reminiscence on friendships. It’s a memorable time!

How to repurpose your Holiday Cards!Step one: Gather your supplies. You will need a tag to label your book with the appropriate year, a pen, a hole punch, scissors and twine, ribbon or a ring to hold everything together.

Step two: Take each card and punch a hole in the top left corner.

Step three: Use twine, ribbon or a ring to gather cards together.Step four: Add your own Holiday Card and a tag with the year on it.

Step five: Store each Holiday book in a Christmas Box.

My Grandmother had another way of repurposing her old Holiday Cards. One day, I hope to make my own little baskets and trinket boxes out of holiday cards. For now, I just thought I’d show you what I get to enjoy including in my holiday decor.

Now go out there and create something.Cynthia
