I have a bad habit of saving every card I have ever recieved for every holiday, birthday, you name it.
Well, here is what I did with a few of them:

I just tore the front of the card to the size I wanted, glued it to the front of a plain card and then sewed (on my sewing machine) a border.
I had another one that I gave away over the weekend, it was fro a 9 year old girl and she really liked it.

I could say the same thing!!
But I could do that to the Christmas cards I get,
you get so many...
**We make kids' ornaments with ours, at the Church,
we cut the centers out in a circle pattern and let the
kids take glitter and make zig~zag patterns, then cut
a hole at the top and thread some sort of string to hang..

But your idea is really cute..
I like it alot!!!
