Tip: Uses for Leftover Christmas Cards

After Monday's post about what to do with leftover candy canes (I love that someone took the time and energy to create that yummy list) I decided to follow the "leftover holiday things" theme for this weeks tips.

Today, creative uses for leftover Christmas Cards
  • cut front off and glue it to a folded piece of construction paper or card stock to make a new card
  • cut out shapes and glue to paper for a "first words" or "first colors" book for a toddler
  • make playing size cards out of them for a house of cards
  • make playing size cards out of them for a concentration game (match 2 Santas, match 2 stars, etc.)
  • make a book of photos received from family and close friends to help kids learn who is who in their family
  • trace the front of the card with a cookie cutter and cut out to make a pretty festive ornament for next years tree, add some glitter if you wish
  • create gift tags from the cover
  • donate your cards to St. Jude's Ranch for Children. This charity recycles old cards by making brand-new ones. The money from these new cards is donated to the help children who were the victims of abuse, neglect and abandonment
  • cut out the words and use them to create a family word game 
  • frame them
Add to the list in the comments.
