Dec. 19th- Repurposing: Quick & Easy Last-Minute Christmas Cards

As a crafter, I am also a hoarder. I'm sure many of you can relate! Every year my family buys or makes adorable gift tags to adorn our Christmas packages. Some of them are so cute I can't bear to throw them away...I just know I'll be able to use them for something someday.

Over the years I've collected quite a stash. So this is the year I decided to do something with them...repurpose them into Christmas cards! If you don't save your tags from previous years, you can use the extras from this year that you aren't using for packages.

With a little patterned paper and some stamps, I created this card in under 10 minutes. If you get an assembly line going you could make them even faster! By leaving your card background white and using just a little paper, you are also keeping the cost down by repurposing!

Do you make your own Christmas cards? What tricks can you share to make them quick & easy but still beautiful?

Happy crafting,
