10 Christmas Card Upcycling Projects

10 Christmas Card Upcycling Projects

It’s the new year! Like most people, I love January as a time to declutter, organize, and freshen things up. I hate just recycling Christmas Cards – in years past I have made simple laminated gift tags like this one. This year I wanted to brainstorm some new ideas, and love the ones I found!

If you’re not crafty or don’t have time, don’t forget you can donate to the Recycled Card Program at St. Jude’s Ranch for Children. They reuse the cards as a fundraiser – less trash & charity fundraising is a win-win in my book

I’d love if you pinned the round-up graphic(s), but if you’re pinning individual images please click through to the original site first. If there isn’t a picture, that means I didn’t hear back from the owner about using it so you’ll have to jump over and see it on their blog!
