It is so heart warming to receive Christmas cards and they are way too pretty to tuck away. What to do with all these lovely cards? I have a few Christmas card ideas to craft. However, there are some you want to display so I have joined some amazing bloggers to share how we display cards and how to make a keepsake book with them.
Homemade Christmas Card Ideas
I keep the cards from the year before in my Christmas decorations to use for crafting the next year.
Rustic Christmas Card Advent Calendar
This year I decided to make a fun candy filled advent calendar and use last year’s Christmas cards to decorate the treat bags.

Cut out all numbers. Then cut 8″ squares out of craft paper. Fold over the paper and tape up the back.
Next, fold up the corners on the bottom.
Then fold the point over towards the back and hot glue in place.
Glue the numbers to the front about 1/2″ from the bottom.
Fill each treat bag with goodies.
Fold over top corners and tape closed.
Use the tag hole punch and cut out the tags from old Christmas cards.
Then use a regular hole punch and punch a hole in the point of the treat bags.
Now the fun part finding a stick in your yard or purchase a dowel. I painted mine with black paint and then used spray glitter over the black paint. I placed the stick on my table to figure out the twine lengths.
As I promised here are more ideas for your lovely Christmas cards. From a card keepsake book to elegant card displays.
