I love getting Christmas cards – I love it so much I want to marry it.
But what do you do with them when you flip the calendar to January? Some Christmas cards are just too beautiful, or too precious to toss in the recycle bin or donate for a classroom project ? so instead of shoving them in the back of a drawer somewhere, try this:
? Cut the card at the seam and use craft scissors to trim out a pretty frame, both on the front of the card and the inside of the card
? Affix the front of the card to a piece of sturdy craft paper and the inside of the card to the back
? Tie a pretty ribbon to create a ?hook? for your Christmas tree
Viola – A beautiful Christmas ornament! I made a bunch one year because I had more tree than ornaments. These days I have plenty of ornaments, but these remain my favorites. As we decorate our tree each year, it?s wonderful to re-read all of the special Christmas cards my family has received over the years.
