Old Christmas card do have a use!
Of course we are going to save the cute ones from our grandmas or picture cards from our friends, but what to do with the others.
This year, I received many beautiful cards from my insurance agent, doctor, students and cousins twice removed. They were beautiful and I displayed them but there is only so much you can keep.
So...think green and use them again next year!
Here is what I did:
1. Decide on which cards are the ones you will not be saving.
2. Use a paper cutter, die cut or just plain scissors to create the shapes you want. I used my large tag punch. I purchased it at Michaels with a 40% off coupon. It was very reasonable. I use it often for gift tags and price tags. Word of warning - the first paper punch of this brand I purchased broke on it's second punch. I exchanged it and have had no problem with this one. Food for thought when purchasing your own.
3. Occasionally cut the card to be able to get at the pictures you want.
4. All done! Now find a save place to save them for next year.
No need to just use Christmas cards. Try birthday and thank you cards as well. I can also see using other shapes for a beautiful Christmas banner.
Thanks for stopping by!
