Recycling Old Christmas Cards

December 17, 2014 5 comments

Here are a few Christmas ornaments I made from old recycled Christmas cards. I save Christmas cards and those sample cards you get in the mail. I cut out to shapes and glue them together. You can either make them bigger for decorating on a tree or package. You can also make smaller ones that can be used as gift tags.

For more details on the process you can read my original craft post on Recycling Christmas Cards into Ornaments.

Round Recycled Christmas Card Ornaments

December 9, 2012 1 comment


I recycled a few more old Christmas cards into Christmas ornaments. This time I made 4 inch round ornaments from some old cards I have been saving. I used a small bowl from the kitchen to make the round circle. I just placed the bowl over the part of the card that I wanted to cut out. It worked well to place it so I could see if I was capturing all the area I wanted for the ornament. Then I just traced around the edge of the bowl with a pencil and cut out the circles.

You can read all the details on how to recycle Christmas cards into ornaments in a previous craft blog I did last month. These are really quick and easy projects and a wonderful way to recycle old Christmas cards.
