Did you save last year's cards? Create eco-friendly season's greetings by repurposing decorative scraps. To start, cut your favorite scenes from leftover Christmas cards or wrapping paper. Glue to cardstock.
"If a card's design isn't particularly interesting, cut it in a simple shape, such as a Christmas tree, and glue it to a contrasting paper," says Chicago designer Amy Roman, who crafts cards from vintage picture books.
