Upcycled Holiday Cards

You could easily cut up last year's Christmas cards, wrapping paper, ad flyers...it's truly endless!  Have you seen how expensive cards are?!  This saves money and gives a personalized touch to your holiday greetings.

Upcycled Holiday Cards Detail 2

Materials Needed

Cardstock in holiday colors
Recycled magazines
Aleene's Tacky Sticker Sheets
Aleene's Tacky Line Roll
Aleene's Tacky Dot Roll
Tulip Glam-it-up Crystals
Wired tinsel
Fine marker

Bone folder

Paper cutter
Circle punches in graduated sizes

1. Select papers for card. Cut card to size on paper cutter. Fold paper in half and use bone folder to make a sharp edge on card.

2. Cut images into shapes (I used graduated circle punches to make the Christmas balls.)

3. Adhere large images to card using Aleene's sticker sheets.

4. Use Aleene's Tacky Line Roll for wired tinsel and Aleene's Tacky Dot Roll for small embellishments.  I used a fine tip marker to draw the thread on the Christmas balls.
