Repurpose Your Christmas Cards


Most of you are probably starting to pack away your Christmas decorations, which might include Christmas cards you received.  Every year I enjoy hearing from family and friends, but wonder what to do with the beautiful cards when the Christmas season is over.

A couple of years ago I decided to save the cards and each night before we say our dinner prayer, Little One chooses a card from the stack and we include that family in our prayers.  It is a great way to keep loved ones in our thoughts and prayers all year.  If we finish the stack, we just start over until we get new ones the next Christmas season.

How about you?  Do you have any fun and creative way to re-use Christmas cards?  We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section!




  1. Caitlin cuts out the nativity (for example) or other focal point from the card and then puts a hole in the top to attach a ribbon and it gets re-used as a gift tag next year. We scrapbook the cards that are pictures of our friends and their kids and it’s fun to look back and see how much everyone has grown over the years. I didn’t get a chance to send a card this year, so please put us in your “stack of cards” anyway. 🙂
