Thanks for the great card idea. I have used cardboard for ornaments and for gift giving boxes.

My favorite Christmas cardboard craft is to make ornaments. I also enjoy making paper villages to put all over the house. My family knows to save any cardboard for me because I use it so much in crafting.

This is a cute idea. I love getting Christmas cards. I have even used them in recycling craft projects. But first I like to show them off. Usually though they end up on a table or in a basket and don't get noticed. This is an excellent way to display them.

I like to make boxes out of cardboard using decorative paper on the outside and inside. These are functional and beautiful!

I love making cards, but I mostly use cardboard for backings for paper ornaments and such.

Haven't done any such cardboard crafts, so no preference...I commented.

What a great idea for a Christmas card holder! I like making decorated place cards for Christmas dinner.

So pretty!! Personalized cards are the best!
