RECYCLED CHRISTMAS CARD ORNAMENTSThe first time I saw one of these beauties I was mesmerized, and then I found out how easy they are to make and am even more enchanted. Here is a tutorial for the 20-circle version, shown above (one of my favorite gifts last year). I tried my own with 9 circles.
RECYCLED CHRISTMAS CARD GIFT TAGSThe inside of a Christmas card gets a bad 'wrap.' The outside is shiny, sparkly, and beautifully illustrated, but the sentiment inside often gets overlooked. As I was opening last year's cards to find imagery for the ornaments, I started reading these messages and thought they'd make great gift tags. Select words that resonate with you, or simple images, and clip away. Crynfiction has made some beautiful tags to adorn her recycled wrapping, in a similar spirit.
OTHER IDEAS: Here's a great tutorial for a recycled Christmas card star, tree-topper style. Gorgeous. And my personal favorite, the Christmas Card Puzzle Game from Let's Explore.
