What do you do with all the Christmas cards you've received this year, after the holidays?
Me? I put them in a small box that goes into storage with the rest of the decorations until next year. That will be the beginning of my mailing list next year.
This year I found the cards from the previous two years. I didn't want to just toss them, some of them are beautiful!! So I decided they could make beautiful gift tags, or even another card (if there was no writing on the inside of the cover) next year.
So I pulled out the scissors and began cutting. I didn't save the whole cover on all of them ( I did on two or three) but I just began cutting out squares, circles, rectangles of the covers, creating cute little cardboard tags. Next year we'll take a hole punch and put a piece of ribbon through it and viola' have some beautiful, unique name tags!
Or I'll give them to the kids along with some construction paper, glue sticks, glitter, whatever else they find in our craft basket and let them make some of their own Christmas cards!!
So tell me, what do you do with yours?
