Gift Toppers And Cards
You can make some pieces to give them again to your friends and family: gift toppers or new cards. The idea is easy: cut out some trees of cards and place them on the gifts, or you can give your gift toppers any other shape. You can also make new Christmas cards of old ones – take some cardboard as a base and decorate the cards with various parts and cutouts of other cards. Add sparkles, rhinestones and other details to make your cards super special.
