Re-using Old Christmas Cards

Several people give me their old Christmas cards each year so that I can reuse the ribbons, sentiments and toppers.

With a bit of mat and layering they can easily be reused as backgrounds too!

I also use the backs for stamping, so very little goes in the recycling bin!
