A Bee (I don’t remember who, sorry!) posted about using cards to make Christmas ornaments.  I think she ripped them in shreds, and twirled them somehow, and then filled up one of those clear plastic ball ornaments with them.  I’m going to see if I can find a link right now.

OK, I found it!  Of course it was the fabulous Mrs. Green Tea, who could craft her way to the moon if she wanted to.

She used her wedding invitation, but it’s sort of the same idea.

Thanks, Miss Mouse, that’s an amazing link!

Could you do a collage of some sort and then have it framed?

I recently read on a blog about someone who makes collages from old greeting cards – it looked beautiful. Sadly can’t find the link anywhere – has anyone seen it?

What about ripping off the front of the card – writing a quick note of who it was from on the bottom, folding it in half and using some heavy thread or ribbon to quilt them together?

I know they just take up space, but when I was last home I found cards from my parents wedding.  It was great reading all the messages in the cards with her.  I’m horrible about keeping cards, but I think we’ll now be keeping our wedding ones…
