Recycling greeting cards

How many of us dont know what to do with the amount of cards that are given to us - after all we can only keep so many. The answer is reuse and recycle.

Make them into fridge magnets

Make them into little gift boxes

Use your punches on them to get unique punched shapes.

 Twirl them to create flowers for your projects

Make them into tags and send them to your friends with inspirational sayings or prayers to lift them up
 Use the borders in your own designs

- Make them into bases for your own art ie inchies, twinchies, ATC's etc
- Use the plain white card on the back for your stamping (needs to be non-glossy)


  1. Clever, clever, clever... so much inspiration there... and I have not been visiting. My loss really but now my gain because I will never let go off your blog.

    Great ideas - thanks for sharing.
