Let's recycle those Christmas cards!
I received several beautiful, brightly colored cards this year and enjoyed displaying them during the holiday season, but now it's time to take them down.
This is a lovely way to use them again next year.
Step 1: Supplies
For this project you will need:
Old Christmas cards
Step 2: Cut Out Circles
For one ornament you will need 8 circles. I had enough cards for 2 ornaments.
Make a 3" circle pattern. Place the circles where you will get the majority of the designs on the cards.
Cut out circles.
Step 3: Triangle
Measure and cut out a triangle with 2-3/4" sides.
On the back of each circle, take the triangle and center it on the back of each circle.
Trace around triangle with pencil.
Place a circle face up in front of you. Fold upward on the lines.
Repeat with remaining circles.
Step 4: Staple Together
Match up the folds on 2 circles and staple near the fold.
Repeat with 3 remaining pairs.
Attach one pair to another with staple, near the fold.
Tape a loop of string to the inside before stapling the top section to the bottom section.
You should have 4 circles on top and 4 circles on bottom.
Hang ornament from loop.
When storing the ornaments, wrap loosely in tissue paper.
