Recycle Greeting Cards Into Gift Tags
December 27, 2008 · Print This Article
As you take down the tree and clean up the wrapping paper mess think about what you will do with the greeting cards you received that year (well, whether public still send you paper Christmas cards in the mail).
I don’t have a lot of cards, but I have a few, and for the past few years I’ve tucked away the cards I received with the Christmas decorations considering it just didn’t feel right to throw them away or recycle them.
I have the perfect solution now though. Go to a craft store, or ask your paper-crafting friends, and find a tag shaped punch. You couldeven use a circle, square or scalloped edge shape. Anything that’s not tiny will do. thereupon, punch out all the pretty parts of those greeting cards.
Use a regular circle gap punch to put a gap in each and attach them with ribbon, string, yarn, etc. to packages for cute, different gift tags. Easy. And you reused something instead of just throwing it into the recycling.
