  3. Once the glue is dried, the fun begins. You can use the sewing machine, embroidery thread, tissue paper, paint, markers, stamps, or images printed from the computer to finish the cards.

I have used recycled cards to cover the small Kleenex box. Measure cards to fit the four sides and top. Cut an X slit in the top card. I used crochet thread to join the cards.

I love using old Christmas cards to make new ones to give out to friends and family. There is nothing wrong with upcycling your gifts from others to brighten someone else's day. It gives your cards a new lease on life, and two families or more get pleasure out of one card. What a great inspirational post!

I love to reuse old Christmas cards. They are much too pretty to throw out. This is a great example of reusing cards. What I do with mine is cut off the unmarked picture side, fold it in half and use it as a tag card for gifts.

Great Idea! I like it.

This is a wonderful, appealing idea! I like it a lot!

Crazy patch is my favorite thing to do--great idea for Christmas cards!

Pretty neat idea. I would never have thought of that as a way of using old cards to make new cards.

I love this Idea, I just need to remember that I can do this! Smile!!
