Christmas cards

I like to make boxes out of cardboard using decorative paper on the outside and inside. These are functional and beautiful!

I love making cards, but I mostly use cardboard for backings for paper ornaments and such.

Haven't done any such cardboard crafts, so no preference...I commented.

What a great idea for a Christmas card holder! I like making decorated place cards for Christmas dinner.

So pretty!! Personalized cards are the best!

My favorite Christmas cardboard craft is decorating boxes for gifts.
