I haven't seen those bowls in years! It's interesting how there are so many variations. Crochet or sew, 5, 6 or 7 sections, etc. See kids, math does come in handy.


I love these. I have found only two of these so far and they were awful 70s colors so I passed on them. But may I say when I see yours at Christmas filled to the brim I love them. Imagine ladies and girls crafting them. What fun! These are truly stories in and of themselves. Smiles...Renee


I LOVE these!!! And I probably have enough old Christmas cards in the drawer that I could make a few of my own.


The perfect something-out-of-nothing craft - love these. I see them from time to time, but I think your collection is the most for me in one spot!


These are so cute, and would you believe that I don't own even ONE of these! Amazing to me, guess I just never come across them.....oh well, something to keep searching for.....:).
Love your collection!

One Gal's Trash

I'm always drawn to these too. They're just so...FRIENDLY! I especially love the Christmas ones, my little magpie!


I've seen some greeting card containers but none like your collection. These are so cute it makes me want to make one!(or find one):-) I'll have to pay more attention next time I'm rummaging.Thanks for giving me another idea (item) to look for now.. LOL..Love those vintage graphics on those cards.


I used to see those containers years ago when the women were making them. Very nice collection you have there Laurie.

My Blessed Serendipity Life

I have always loved these and thought they would make a great collection (and they do).

What a fun collection. I remember my grandmother having some of these out at Christmas. Makes me want to try and attempt them with my girls. Thanks for sharing!


I have several of these myself. I love them!

I would love a Christmas one of these containers. Off to search on ebay! I loved the last Christmas picture and did I spy one of Amy's Christmas banners hanging? I never bought one from her and always wish I had. I don't know if she makes those anymore. Fun post.


They are so sweet!!!
I have one that is a chair made from the old greeting cards. Nice collection!


these are so cute Laurie! You have a nice collection. I made one yrs ago, that looked like a house, and the roof opened. It got squashed. Now, I want to make another one. Love yours! thanks for sharing yet another great collection. :)



Love the Christmas one!! I have never seen these:) Nice collection


Well, there is something I don't collect and don't think I have ever run across, or maybe I have but just wasn't paying attention. Yours are adorable (of course) and I may have to start hunting for them! Now if only I had Laurie's studio to house all these new collections life would be grand! LOL

You know... those are really sweet. I'd like to make one! I wonder if,,, there was a card-basket-making club (like a knitting club?).... can you imagine, sweet, little old ladies in their house dresses, bringing a red-jello dessert and getting together... cranking these out?

nice collection, miss ethel!


These are great. Believe it or not, I have never seen one before! I have one item along this theme that I just picked up this summer. It is a little round topped treasure chest sort of thing that is made from postcards that have been stitched together. I thought it was so clever I had to bring it home

my grandmother had one of these bowls made from Christmas cards, unfortunately it was lost over the years. I happened to think about it when talking with a friend last night about hating to throw away the lovely Christmas cards she received. Thank you for showing the ones made from other cards I always thought of this as a way to use Christmas cards
