Recycle your greeting cards

Published:

Make decorative bags
Cut out your favorite design on the greeting card, or if you like the entire thing, cut off the entire cover and adhere it to a plain gift bag using two-sided tape or adhesive found in craft stores.Outline the design with glitter glue or markers and consider enhancing the design.

If it has snowflakes on it, add glue and glitter and make them shimmer. If you have nice hand writing, are well-versed in calligraphy, or know how to use a computer, you can add a sentiment related to the occasion. Use a brown or colored bag to match the artwork in the card. Complete it by adding matching curly ribbon around the handles and you have a nice way to present a gift without spending much money.

Create gift tags
Instead of buying gift tags during the holidays, consider cutting out the artwork from old greeting cards just as you did for the decorative bags. Only this time, punch a hole in the top, thread matching curly ribbon through it and attached it to a holiday present. Each tag will be unique and those receiving the gift will notice the extra attention to detail to their package.
