vintage CHRISTMAS card garland

do you remember i mentioned finding vintagey Christmas cards
back in this post?

this is what is was! a gorgeous vintage book full of unused Christmas cards.
i wasn't totally sure what i was going to make until i started
popping the cards out of the book.
once trimmed up, i ran them through my new laminator
cut them out and hole punched them.
i then used some natural twine to string them altogether.


i had a few left over to hang on the tree,

and to use as Christmas gift tags.

Christmas decorations are already 50% off in many shops,
so i grabbed these colourful sparkly ones from Spotlight and added them to my
silver branches

  2. The garland looks SO good, and is a great idea, esp since mailing Christmas cards seems to be a fading tradition! Love the Christmas baubles in a vase - i've done that too! Also gave Will a few non-breakable leftover decorations to have in a bowl on his little table, to keep him away from Mummy's "special" ones :) He loves it and its worked beautifully!

  7. Love the garland. I hang our Christmas cards on string as garland across the windows. I don't know why I didn't think to do it with the vintage post cards that have been in the family. Perhaps for Valentine's Day I will. Thanks for the inspiration. Merry Christmas!
