One Unique Way to Give Your Christmas Cards a New Home
But, after Christmas is over, I am not sure what to do with all these sweet cards, letters, and pictures. It seems a shame to throw them all away! That's why it's great to have a specific purpose for these wonderful cards we receive every year. At the link at the bottom of this post you will find 40 different ideas of what to do with Christmas cards, and leftover wrapping paper.
Today, I'm showing you a fun, crafty, way to reuse Christmas cards by using them as the materials needed to create a beautiful little Christmas village.
To get started, I printed off the BHG template, but it's pretty easy to make your own. I was surprised when their template only had one, though their picture of their card village showed houses of different sizes.
I adapted their house template and created two more house templates, both with a base of 6 inches long, simply adjusting the height and width for each.
I chose to stick with houses more of the same shade and color, but you don't have to!
