Recycling Christmas Cards: Framed Art

Recycling Christmas Cards: Framed ArtWhile visiting family this week, I noticed my mom received a stack of Christmas cards from family and friends. She had a genius idea that I just had to share! Several of the cards had beautiful graphics that weren’t too “Christmasy” and were worth saving, so she decided to frame them!

What You Will Need:
