I am never sure what to do with Christmas Cards… I have the past two or three years’ cards in a manila envelope and I hate to throw them out but I can’t imagine piling them up year after year after year.
I was so excited when LeeAnn sent me this link to make Recycled Christmas Card Ornaments. How cool! I plan to make two ornaments per year and hang a little tag from the ribbon with the date. And then I want to string them all together and make a garland for somewhere in the house (Curtain rods in the living room? Mantle? Above the kitchen cabinets?). I think it’ll be so neat to be able to display a piece of everyone’s Christmas cards every single year… a bit like a patchwork quilt, don’t you say?
I thought the idea was neat and that I’d pass it along. I got 5 done today- one from 2006, two from 2007 and two from 2008.
So… what do you do with your Christmas cards? Save them in a box? Display them year after year? Turn them into place mats? Scrapbook them? Throw them away? Recycle them?
