Small greeting card houses can be made from any kind of Christmas card or greeting card.
These small houses are perfect for holding a tiny gift. You could also fold paper money small enough to fit inside one.
Greeting card houses can also be used as Christmas tree ornaments or gift package tie ons.
Once you have learned to make a few of them, you can make a bunch quickly and easily, and in fact, they become addictive.
Should you use up all your leftover greeting cards, you can use designer card stock to make them, too.
You don’t have to stop with just making a greeting card house, though. You can add all kinds of details such as door and window frames, a chimney, and a wreath on the door.
Throw a little house making party and invite your crafting friends to bring their old holiday cards and a dish to pass. You can all finish lots of card houses while enjoying a fun visit.
Some of these patterns may need to be resized to fit your cards.
