    I absolutely love these! Just looking at the images takes me back to our “gather ’rounds” at my Aunt Mildred’s kitchen table when I was just a smitch! I haven’t purchased any Christmas cards for this year’s sending yet. I’m definitely going to go with making these. They conjure up such nostalgia for me. Thank you , Paul, my cockles are warmed!

    Love your idea. My Gramma used to help us make little manger scenes in small gift boxes, using cards from Christmas passed. This is a another great way to use them and less fussy.
    Thanks!
