Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Every year we receive TONS of Christmas cards.  From friends, family and places of employment.  There is such excitement that fills a person when you see an envelope address to you (and you know its not a bill!).

I generally do not keep all the cards, there may be a few that get put away for the children to really appreciate when they are older (from a special family member or friend).

What I do with them in fact is make my gift tags for next year.  I am not a pack rat... however soo many of the cards are just too beautiful to just toss out with the trash (and it saves on purchasing gift tags).

So from these....

...they are turned into these...

..or these.

{You may say you are not crafty or you don't have the time... but this literally took 20 minutes, while sitting on the couch watching a television program with the children}

I love them, they are cute, creative and free!  Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!
