I use them for ATC elements (there's quite a few that when properly dissected can look very cool not just "holiday-like".) And also you can use them for Scrapping if you use acid free paper under them or for gift tags for next year.

Gift tags for next year could be fun. I also have a bunch that I never sent becasue I am really good at messing up people's addresses. I end up using more envelopes than cards! ha!

Ok, I know this has been done to death but my mom always uses them to make small gift boxes for next year.  They are the perfect size for gift cards etc.

I over-ordered my photo cards in 2006.  I used them to make ornaments this year.  I used a design from www.designsponge.bl ogspot.com 's DIY section (which I found linked in another craftster thread.)  They are called "modern paper ornaments".

I fussy-cut the cards so that I could have "Happy Holidays from the HollyP Family!" run down the outer edges of the ornaments.  Rather than hang them on the tree, I hung them from silver cord in a picture window.  I had many compliments on them.  And my kids love seeing their mini-photos hidden on the inside of the ornaments.

I love the idea of the origami boxes.  I have some patterns, and will have to dig them out when I take the cards down next week.

There's a topic somewhere on here about using clothing tags to make keychains or something...I'm sure cut up greeting cards would work, too.

I have a whole bunch of fliers advertising a series of concerts (but all the fliers are the same), does anyone want them?

I made over 100 treat boxes for my kids classrooms this year outta Christmas cards.  We added homemade fudge, chocolate covered pretzels, a mini candy cane and a few smal pieces of candy.  All the kids were in ahh, teachers to.  U can also make garland by stringing them together.  Got the idea from my aunt that saw it on t.v.  Hope that helped.

You could just cut out the picture, and stick it on a bit of folded cardboard. Viola!! New cards for nothing!
