Upcycle your Holiday Cards

Upcycle and reuse your Christmas and Holiday cards into festive ornaments, gift tags, monogram labels, and good wishes!  Martha Stewart has a great idea pictured below for a Good Wish Tree.  Just cut squares out of your cards, punch a hole in the corner and attach a ribbon or string.  Use branches from the yard to make the tree.  Friends and family can write notes of holiday cheer, good wishes, or season's greetings on the backs of the squares.  It's a festive way to brighten the holiday spirit!

 Holiday Card Ornaments - tutorial from Martha Stewart.  These little ornaments are so pretty, and can be used in a glass display as shown here, or used to decorate table trees and garland strands.  Such a fun idea!  Click the pic below to go to the tutorial.

Make gift tags from re-purposed Christmas and Holiday cards - add ribbon or string, and use decorative scissors to give them a fancy scallop.  This idea came from www.thegoodstuffguide.com.

Here is another wonderful idea from Martha Stewart on how to reuse Christmas and Holiday cards.  You can even do this for birthday cards, too!  Simply use a stencil to cut out letters and create monogram labels for packages.  So easy, and so cute!  I will be using this idea for the next gift I give!
