Card Cutups

To make Card Cutups, it's best if you have saved birthday or holiday cards. Use them to create a memory collage, new greeting cards, or special decorations.

How to Make Card Cutups

What You'll Need:

  • Old Greeting Cards
  • Blunt Scissors
  • Glue
  • Construction Paper
  • Markers

1. Remember your birthday with a memory collage. Cut out the cover designs and inside greetings from old birthday cards. Glue them in a random pattern on a piece of construction paper. Write the date of your birthday on the collage.2. To make new greeting cards, fold a piece of construction paper in half. Cut pictures from old greeting cards. Glue them to the front of the construction paper. Then write your own greeting inside.

3. To make a holiday decoration, cut different pictures from several holiday cards. For example, cut a picture of Santa Claus from one card, a picture of presents from another card, and a tree from a third card. Then glue them together on a piece of paper to make a picture of Santa putting presents under the tree.
