I made this using an old phamplet and templates I found here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=259416.msg2903668#msg2903668

It is made of old cards.  I used three thicknesses of cards only because my hole punch would go through that much! Cheesy

It will hold Christmas cards or candy or anything not too heavy!

Looking into bowl:

How CUTE! And it looks so retro/kitschy...a perfect use for some the old holiday cards I've been saving.

You do not need to crochet to make these--you can just stitch them together!  The time-consuming part is punching the holes!  Please post if you make one! Cheesy

I hate throwing out cards at the end of the season, (I keep certain ones to use in scrapbooking), but this is a lovey way to remember the cards year after year!  Wonderful job!
