Make Placemats With Last Year's Christmas Cards

You can use old Christmas cards to make holiday placemats. Cut out pictures from old Christmas cards and scotch tape or glue them together. Once you have several cutouts together, place them onto the sticky side of the contact paper (other side of paper will have a design). Next, take clear contact paper and cover the cutouts, press firmly to get out the air bubbles. Then simply cut the excess contact paper off and you'll have a nice placemat. You can use it picture side up for the holidays and design side up for the rest of the year. Messes wipe right off and they last forever! You may want to use pinking shears to give the edges a more decorative look.

Last Year's Christmas Cards

You can also recycle last year Christmas cards too now. I have doing it for a while. I haven't bought any Christmas cards in a while. All you do is if there is no writing on the backside that has the picture, you can use them. Just cut the card in half now and put double sided tape on it, then put lace on it and do your own writing on the back of it. Why throw them away when you don't have to? (12/07/2004)
