getting ready for Christmas 2010


This pretty Christmas card was made by Susan and sent to me in 2008. Nina declared it "the cutest card ever" and it has been on my craft room bulletin board since it came.
Susan used a circle punch to cut out the pictures from old Christmas cards, then she glued them onto a solid bigger circle.
this is the card as I scanned it, it is so much prettier in real life - this scan just does not do it justice.

I am not taking down all our Christmas decorations today but I did take down a few things, including our 2009 cards that were hanging on ribbons in the hall.
I remembered how cute that card from Susan was, so I got out a punch, mine is square with raggedy edges, and punched out lots of squares to make Christmas cards to send next year.

  1. I LOVE that idea! I've not done any paper crafts, so I'm in the dark about the cutters you are talking about. Do they have them at Wal-Mart?

  3. Awww Rhonda! You have me blushing. I will say that I LOVED making those cards. I think a square punch would be great. You could make it look like a window pane - very cool! I am ready to start on Christmas 2010 as well!

  4. I have never made cards but would love too. The square punch is neat. Would be cool like a window pane.

    I brought a few gifts today for 2010 Christmas.

  6. I think this is a great idea! I'm going to see if my dd17 is willing to sit down with me for a little while this week, and make some punches for next year. Thanks for posting!

  7. Thank you for sharing this. I have to agree with Nina. I am determined to make my own cards next year. This will be a great way to use the cards I received this year.
