Featured this week: Recycle last year's cards into new ones!

  • Recycled Greeting Cards - In this tutorial, learn how to make new greeting cards by recycling old cards. A variety of techniques are presented that make it easy to create a card you will be proud to send. Making recycled cards is a terrific group activity and is fun for crafters of all ages.

  • Wednesday Treat: New traceable templates for card making!

    This week's Wednesday treat is a set of new pine tree and bell templates to cut tree- and bell-shaped images, backgrounds, and mats from old cards to make Recycled Greeting Cards. The templates can also be used in other Christmas crafts.

    Shaped Cards for Christmas - Make simple and fun holiday cards in the shape of a pine tree, Santa, or an angel. These cards are easy enough for younger children and people with special needs to make.
