Another Use For Our Christmas Cards

What do you do with your Christmas cards after Christmas? I wanted to re-use some this year and came up with a simple idea of how. A while ago my parents gifted me with some coasters that you can put pictures in. I decided this was the perfect place to reuse some of our cards.







I think I will tuck these away at the end of winter with our Christmas decorations and maybe see if some birthday cards work for spring coasters. We'll see, but I love the idea of having a great way to reuse our cards. It's hard to know what to do with them when the holidays are over.

Do you keep your Christmas cards? Throw them away? Have another way to reuse them?

  1. What a great idea Melanie! And to think I just turned mine into gift tags! :o You could actually make wall hangings with them - it's what I thought they were - little frames - when I looked at the photos before reading the post!

  3. That's a great idea! My grandma re-uses cards as gift tags the next season - she tears off the front of the card and writes the recipient's name and a message on it. It's really cute.
