Christmas Card Recycling - 2 EASY Projects

It's never as much fun to put AWAY for Christmas is it? 
 
 
I am sharing a couple of ideas I designed to use with leftover Christmas cards.


The first is a gift that my students make for their parents.  Placemats from Recycled Christmas Cards.  They arrange the cards any way they want on a large piece of red construction paper.
 
 
We cut out interesting shapes of the cards such as circles and ovals.  We also add cutouts like white snowflakes and green pine trees.  Adding some of the inspirational words from the inside of the card is also a nice touch.
 
Lastly, laminate for durability.  I have a set of 4 I use on my table each Christmas.
 
 
The second project I like to do with recycled cards is to make an ornament.
 
I have shown the steps in the below pictures.
