Greeting Card Crafts
You can make these with any kind of greeting cards for an everyday decoration or one that is seasonal. We can imagine how pretty this would be with some of those stunning Christmas cards we receive each year.
Make small gift boxes from greeting cards. Yes, it’s true! The front of the card forms the top and the back forms the bottom. Easy peasy!

Simple canning lids and old greeting cards come together to form functional and beautiful coasters.
