On the 12th day of Christmas


Although I love decorating the house for Christmas, I am secretly a little glad when 6th January comes and we can pack it all away until December.

I do like spend half an hour salvaging bits to reuse for craft projects; some during the year and some for our Advent crafts.

This box has the fronts of Christmas cards, scraps from crackers, party hats and other sparkly bits that we will use to make gift tags from with recycled ribbons to tie them on with.

It’s not much in the sea of recycling and rubbish but it does salve my conscience a bit and gives us lots of fun later in the year.
