    What to do with old Xmas cards

    I've been going through some of the stuff that I've packed away over the years and I've noticed I have a really hard time throwing away cards and letters and such. I save my Christmas cards every year and I can't really figure out what to do with them. I've seen instructions for making them into notebook covers. Does anyone have any other ideas?

    I cut them up into gift tags.

    I save them and display them every year. However, I did go crazy once at an after Christmas sale and ended up with about 10 boxes of 30 cards each. A couple years ago when my oldest was small, I wanted her to be able to be a part of decorating and enjoying the Christmas tree so I made boxes, fans and chains out of the Christmas cards. I attached ribbon to hang them. Last year, I cut out the pictures on the outside, punched a hole in them and used them as gift tags.

    I save the front pieces of the sturdier cards for post cards the next christmas. You still have the piece where the person signed it so you know which one to NOt send to them. I haven't had to buy new ones in years! The flimsier(?) ones become gift tags.

    I make photo ornaments out of them. I have instructions up on my blog (address in signature).
