Recycled/Upcycled Christmas Card Boxes with Greating

 Recycled/Upcycled Christmas Card Boxes with a Greeting.   

Looking for a way to use up all those old Christmas Cards? Looking no further. I am sharing a great craft with you Upcycled Christmas Card Boxes with a greeting . They are combination of a Christmas card and a gift box.
These are so easy to make. I saw these cute boxes at a craft show ( the sweetest woman was making them, she's so very talented)  few weeks ago and I was inspired.
Let's get started.




Here what's you'll Need:
A Christmas Card
1) Grab Your Pretty Christmas Card and cut in half at the fold line.

2) Start with the decorated front of the card and put the card face down. Taking the ruler and line it  on bottom of the card and folded it over to create a crease.

4)Repeat with other three sides.
Now cut the a small slit down one of the edges. This will create tabs.

5)Folded over the tabs, to form a box shape and tape down the tabs. This will form a box.

6) Now repeat the process with the bottom part of the card. If you're using a card that has greeting keep the greeting face up.  
Now put the top and bottom together.

And sit back and bask in you your genius!

Happy Creating!!
