Here’s a great Christmas Crafts idea – using your old Christmas cards.
If you’re anything like me, you hate to see anything go to waste. Everything has more than one purpose in life.
Here’s what you can do with your old Christmas cards. And it doesn’t involve throwing them out!
Turn Last Year’s Christmas Cards Into This Year’s Gift Tags

If you ever needed any inspiration, take a look at how good these gift tags are.
All you need to do is cut out some tag templates and some string ties.
Then start working through a pile of Christmas cards for images you like.
The possibilities with this project are endless.
You can cut out images of all different sizes.
You can mix and match from all different cards. Try to theme your tags by colour or topic.
This idea could also be used for Christmas Tree Ornaments.
Easy Christmas Crafts
Imagine how much fun you can have making your own gift tags.
Christmas is the gift that keeps on giving.
Even after Christmas has been and gone, you can still get enjoyment from your Christmas crafts – like this one.
I’m going to look through my Christmas cards now, and set some aside for when it is time to craft.
This is going to be fun!
Tips From Our Facebook Fans
Update: 17 November 2013.
I received some great comments after putting this article up on the Facebook Page.
If you are a card hoarder, you probably want to keep your cards for the memories. One reader suggests putting your cards on the scanner and saving the images to your computer. That way you always have the memories and you can have fun recycling the cards.
And taking that one step further:
- If you do digital scrapbooking, turn your scanned cards into an album.
- If you do retro scrapbooking, print your scans and turn them into a beautiful keepsake.
