ARE YOUR CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS PUT AWAY?

I hate to admit it, but I still have some decorations that need boxed up in the basement. I didn’t think it was wise for me to box up the children’s homemade decorations and stuffed animals that have been sitting out since Thanksgiving because I am allergic to dust.

Since I was sick most of January, my husband had to take everything down and put all the decorations away.

Today I want to talk about Christmas cards in particular. The cards you received this year can be put in a scrapbook or use my friend’s Jill and Paula’s tip. They cut up various parts of the cards and use them for Christmas tags the next year. Paula will layer two or three parts of a card to make a three-dimensional tag.

The tags my friend Jill made out of Christmas cards.

I wanted to share my tip. The glue on the envelope seems to lose its strength over time. If you have cards leftover don’t toss them because of the envelopes. You can pick up inexpensive Christmas seals. I do recommend you send the older cards out first.
