Save your Christmas cards. Then, turn them into Christmas card notepads.

Difficulty: Easy

Time Required: 30 minutes or less

Here's How:

  1. Cut out the portion of the Christmas card that you want to use as the front of your notepad, and fold the top inch back.
  2. Cut another piece out of the back of the card that's the same size, and fold the bottom inch up. This will serve as the back of your notepad.
  3. Glue the flap that you created in step 1 to the unfolded side of the notepad's back, making sure that the remaining flap is still facing up.
  4. Cut paper to fit inside the notepad.
  5. Stick the paper inside your cover; fold the bottom flap up, and staple it in place.
  6. Tuck the front of the cover inside the stapled flap, just like you would a matchbook, and your Christmas card notepad is complete.

    Note: You may need to trim the bottom of your cover a bit to make it fit inside the flap properly.


  1. Cut words out of the inside of another card to embellish the bottom flap of your notepad.
  2. Make up a bunch of Christmas card notepads, and use them as party favors, stocking stuffers, Secret Santa gifts and co-worker gifts.
