Create Cool Christmas Card Crafts Just Recycle Greeting Cards.

Upcycle And Recycle Holiday Greeting Cards With This 

Myriad Of  Fun Projects!


It seems like such a waste to toss holiday cards in the bin and turn them into landfill. Still many of us live in towns that don't recycle cards.   So, what can we do?
You can donate cards to St Judes Greeting Card Program (which, by the way, takes cards for all occasions). 
But, what if you love that card and want to look at it again and again?  Or, you just want to extend the use by upcycling them in your own way? Recycle crafts are a great way to reuse cards.  Greeting cards can be year long projects and made into beautiful objects.
Here are some fun ways to upcycle your cards for this year and next. 
*note: These ideas work for any holiday just use appropriate cards. Imagine valentines, Easter, Chanukah, Eid, even Patriotic holidays!  Use new or vintage cards.
