    You can also cut them into the shapes then use them like a puzzle to try to put back together.

    Or you can cut circles on them, bend edges in to make a triangle like shape and glue edges together. I think you need 20 of them to glue them into a ball and make a "new" Christmas ornament. Punch a hole with a hole puncher and add ribbon. They come out looking like pretty balls of color.

    Make new cards, using various scraps of Wall Paper, gift wrap and some cardstock, cut out designs and sentiment and make new cards ..

    My son and I make boxes out of our Holiday cards.

    You can find the instructions here.

    My youngest daughters takes the year before's Christmas cards and tapes the together and uses them as wrapping for small gifts she gives to her brother and sister.....
