      What’s the perfect way to recycle Yuletide greeting cards and keep your kids busy on a wintry day? Have them cut their favorite images and details from the cards and then turn them into gift tags or tape them to a window for a cheery display or frame them for Christmas decorations.

      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 ..
