Uses for Old Christmas or Greeting Cards

Don't throw away all the pretty Christmas cards you get away. There are so many things you can do with them. Everyone knows you can make postcards and name tags for gifts with them, but you can also cut out the design you might want to use when you scrapbook. Scrapbooking is a fun thing to do with them. You can also decoupage with them. You can use cards from birthdays, Valentine's Day, Easter, etc. to do your crafts with and not have to buy the pretty designs. I also decoupage my soap with the designs I have cut from the cards. There are so many things you can do with the pretty cards you have received. Have fun!

And if you aren't the creative type you can donate them and let them help someone else.

I never thought about using them in scrap booking.

New heads offer new ideas.

I have begun cutting them down to 4" x 6" and using the white backs of them for index cards. They are handy for writing recipes on or anything you would use those index cards for.
