|Transform your Christmas cards into a huge globe! |
It's a bit sad taking down Christmas cards, so why not retain memories of a lovely time by turning your cards into an amazing hanging globe ornament?
You could make these globes with any cards. It would be a nice way to preserve birthday cards from a special birthday. In fact you can literally use any card as I once made one from food packaging entirely from pizza boxes for my pizza-mad son - who now thankfully eats a wider range of foods ;-)
