Wrapping Paper Christmas Card

What do you do with all the small scraps of paper from wrapping presents? Well, I decided to use them to make a Christmas card. When I was younger I used to make collages out of the wrapping paper my presents came in. My family used to get tired of me going slow so I could "save my paper." It's fun to make a card like this and could be a wonderful craft project for kids. All you need is scraps of wrapping paper, scissors, and glue sticks. Thanks for stopping by and wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

My Wrapping Paper Christmas Card is entered into the following challenges:
