I would like to see pictures of things done (for Christmas) out of old Christmas Cards!
Decorations, boxes, tags, bowls, Angels & so on...

Try cutting 4 card fronts into equal small squares, about 4 per card front. Try and co-ordinate the designs perhaps ie all snowmen, all angels etc. Get plain wooden blocks. Glue the pieces from one card on one side of the blocks with a good clear drying glue, Repeat with the other sides of all the blocks so that each side forms a picture. Seal the cards with a sealer, either spray or brush on and let dry. Then give it to your favourite little person as a easy 4 sides puzzle.
You can make placemats. Cut out different Christmas pictures from Christmas cards in various shapes, glue them on a piece of paper the size of the mat you want. Then cover them on both sides with clear contact paper, or you can cover the backside with a different pattern. Any design you desire and you'll have a reversible placemat.
I let my grandchildren cut out the pretty fronts and glue them on poster board or colored construction paper to make Christmas table mattes, everyone enjoys them and each one is unique. You also can cover them with clear contact paper(as I did) to keep for the next year.
