Using All Those Christmas Card Photos…

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy for more details.


I love getting Christmas cards that either contain or are photos. The question is, what should I do with all of them once Christmas has passed? A few years ago I came up with this simple idea that I’ve used ever since.

Cut off the Christmas wording from the photo.


Place the photos on a cork board making a collage.  I have the board in my laundry room and use it as a prayer board while I’m doing laundry.  These smiles can brighten your laundry room as you do a mundane task!
What do you do with your Christmas card photos?

    I cut mine out and put them on the side of my fridge, but sometimes it can cause the fridge to look a bit cluttered so I really like this cork board in the laundry room idea! I actually have a laundry closet and, just yesterday, was thinking I needed to put something on the side walls as they are very bare and drab. I was thinking of adding some shelves and/or maybe a cute laundry print or saying so maybe I could do shelves on one side and picture cork board on the other :)
