>You can reuse Christmas cards as beautiful ornaments. It's a great way
>to remember loved ones during the holiday season. Here's how.
>
>YOU WILL NEED:
>
>Old Christmas cards
>
>Pencil
>
>Scissors
>
>Stiff cardboard (cereal-box cardboard works well)
>
>Glue
>
>8-inch length of ribbon
>
>DIRECTIONS:
>
>1. Trace the above circle and triangle pattems onto the cardboard and cut
>each out.
>
>2. Select Christmas cards with pictures on them that you like, then use
>the circle pattern to circle the part of the card you want to use for your
>ornament.
>
>3. Cut out the circular section of the card. Repeat for eight circles and
>number their backs 1-8.
>
>Trace a triangle on the back of each circle. Make sure all three points
>of the triangle touch the edges of the circle. Fold along the lines of
>the triangle, flaps up. (It should look like a three-cornered hat, with
>the picture inside the flaps.)
>
>5. Spread a thin layer of glue on the back of circle 1's flaps and wipe
>off excess glue. Keep the glue off of the picture side of the circle. Place
>a flap from circle 2 against the glued flap-edges as closely aligned as
>possible-and pinch tightly for 10 to 15 seconds.
>
>6. Glue a flap from circle 3 onto an open flap from circle 2.
>
>7. Make a hanger by glueing a looped length of ribbon to an open flap at
>the top of your ornament. Glue two flaps of circle 4 onto the open flaps
>of circles 1 and 3 to close your ornament top.
>
>8. Glue a flap from circle 5 onto one of the open flaps of the top of your
>ornament. Then glue a flap of circle 6 to the next open flap of the
ornament
>top. Glue together the open flaps of circles 5 and 6 that are next to each
>other.
>
>9. Glue a flap of circle 7 to the next open flap. Then glue together the
>open flaps of circles 6 and 7 that are next to each other.
>
>10. Carefully position and glue circle 8 to the remaining open flaps,
closing
>the ornament.
>
>Extras:
>
>Write the year the cards were received on the ornaments.
>
>Try theme ornaments made of pictures of Santa or sleighs or Christmas
trees.
>
>
>[IMAGE ILLUSTRATION]
>
>Use one circle to outline the card sender's signature; that way they will
>have signed the Christmas ornament!
