Recycle your Christmas cards to make a mini Christmas tree
Ok, I admit it, I’m a bit of a hoarder, especially when it comes to anything with a bit of sentiment. Which is why I’m absolutely rubbish at throwing things out, especially Christmas cards.
In the past, I used to cut them up into gift tags, but now my daughters’ school has started to turn their artwork into cards and gift tags so I tend to have an excess of gift tags.
So, I searched the internet and saw this great little Christmas decoration.
It’s so simple and a great way of keeping your cards year on year. These are all the cards from 2014, most of them are from our childrens’ friends!
We cut about 20 cards of each size, 3.5 inches square down to 1 inch square. Then I using embroidery thread (simply for thickness) to thread each card on top of each other. The tricky bit was the star but by wrapping the thread around it stayed upright.
I think we’ve started a new family tradition!
Let me know if you do it too.
