What to do with all those Christmas cards we received after the season is over?

Here are some ideas :

Cut shapes out of the cards in matching pairs. Hearts or simple Christmas tree shapes and even plain squares and circles. Stick the cards back to back and laminate them, then punch a hole in them and use to make a colourful and child-friendly mobile or “string” to decorate next year.

You could also back each shape with a plain-coloured piece of card or construction paper and write on it the date and name of the person who sent the card.

Make gift tags for next year's presents.

Scan your favourite cards into the computer – and some of your favourite messages from inside the cards as well – and make them into a Christmas wallpaper or screensaver with a photo program.

Make a collage out of the nicest one and laminate them into nice table sets for next years Christmas season.

What do you do with the cards? We would love some more ideas...
