Recycling Christmas Cards
This is a fun and easy project from BHG using Christmas cards. Using a compass, make circles ranging from large to small. Scallop the edges of some. Slice and remove a 3/16 inch wedge with your scissors to the center of each circle. Form each circle into a cone shape and tape to hold it in place. Cut a styrofoam ball in half. Place the styrofoam flat side down and push a wooden dowel (to desired height) into the center. Stack your cones starting with the largest at the base pushing it down the length of the dowel and into place. Wind a rubberband around the dowel between each layer. Continue until your tree takes shape. Top with a ribbon. No that's a beautiful way to recycle!!
