How to Have Fun with Your Old Cards

How to Have Fun with Your Old Cards

Got old greeting and Christmas cards? Don't toss 'em, repurpose 'em!

Here are 6 creative ways to repurpose your old greeting and Christmas cards:

1. Frame them up and create a gallery wall

Pick out your favorite cards, pop them into frames, and create a stunning gallery wall. It's a guaranteed conversation starter, and you'll be reminded of the love and well wishes every time you walk by. My large cards measure 5x7 inches, so they're easy as pie to frame!

2. Turn them into gift tags

Why spend money on gift tags when you can make your own? Cut out the beautiful designs from your old cards, punch a hole, and attach them to your gifts with colorful ribbons. Your presents will look extra special, and you'll be recycling at the same time!

3. Make a one-of-a-kind bookmark

Bookworms, this one's for you! Cut out a rectangular shape from a card, punch a hole at the top, and thread a ribbon through it. Voila! You've got yourself a unique bookmark that will make your reading experience even more delightful. Plus, you'll never lose your place again.

4. Craft a heartfelt collage

Take a trip down memory lane by creating a collage of your favorite cards. Cut out meaningful words, images, and designs, and arrange them on a canvas or a piece of cardboard. Add some personal touches, like photos or handwritten notes, and you'll have a beautiful piece of art that tells your unique story.

5. Create a decorative bunting

Add a touch of whimsy to any space with a decorative bunting made from old greeting cards. Cut out triangles from the cards, punch holes in the corners, and string them together with twine or ribbon. Hang your bunting across a wall, a mantel, or even a window, and let the festive vibes fill the air.

6. Send a little love with up-cycled postcards

Why buy postcards when you can make your own? Cut out the front of your old cards, write a message on the back, and send them off to your loved ones. Not only will you be spreading joy, but you'll also be reducing waste and giving those cards a chance to shine once again.

So, before you bid farewell to your old greeting and Christmas cards, give them a second chance at life. Get creative, have fun, and let your imagination run wild. Who knew that a simple card could bring so much joy in so many different ways?
