Introduction: What to Do With Your Christmas Cards

Every year I receive christmas cards and I think it's a pity to just throw them away. So, I came up with this.


Step 1: Materials

What do you need to make this?

- christmas cards
- glue
- scissors
- cacrdboard

Step 2: Choosing

Choose the pieces you like best and cut them out.
Leave one bigger card complete.

Step 3: Arranging

Now you need to arrange the pieces.
No rules, do what you think looks pretty.

Step 4: 3D

You can use little blocks of your cardboard for this, just cut them and glue them where you want your pictures.
Then, glue your pictures on.

Step 5: Make It Stand

You don't want this card to fall ove, so we're going to take an extra piece of cardboard, fold it and glue it on the back of the card

Step 6: It's Done!

Enjoy your reused cristmas cards!
