Making your own holiday cards is an easy, eco-friendly, economical and fun craft to do this year. All you need are some used holiday cards, colourful card stock, a simple glue stick and interesting scissors and punches.
This is a simple card made with an image of chickadees cut from a used Christmas card, glued to a piece of metallic card stock that was black on one side and green on the other. I used pinking shears to create the edge on just the front, so that the black would show through.
This little wreath is actually a small image from the back of a used Christmas card, that was the perfect size for a gift tag. I didn't glue the image to the red card stock, because I want to write the message inside. You can then reuse the tags another year by just replacing the card stock.
