Gift Box Craft Using Recycled Christmas Cards


Boxes from Old Christmas Cards

  You can use scraps and leftovers from other projects on this craft. You can tie it in with a lesson on good stewardship and using what we have wisely.

Craft Supplies:

  • Old Christmas cards
  • Ribbons, buttons, wood beads, etc.
  • Acrylic paints & brushes
  • Glue stick or other craft glue
  • Paper Maché or other boxes.

Crafting Instructions:

  1. Paint the boxes the color of your choice with acrylic paints. Allow at least 1 hour to dry between coats. You can lightly sprinkle glitter on the last coat if you desire.
  2. Cut designs off of the old Christmas cards to fit your boxes.
  3. After the paint is dry glue on embellishments. I used a hot glue gun to glue the wood bead feet on the box shown on the right.
