New Uses for Cards

We all get cards through-out the year. Some we keep for sentimental reasons, but there are plenty that just take up space or just end up in the trash (hopefully the recycling), so here are some use for them.

  • Crafts. Cut out the animals, use the letters to make a fun note, the possibilities are endless.
  • Scrapbook. You can easily put those cards that mean something into a scrapbook or even just a memory box.
  • Turn them into placemats for kids by laminating them.
  • Turn them into a postcard by cutting off the side that is written on and writing on the back of the pretty picture side.
  • Turn them into bookmarks.
  • Turn them into recipe cards.
  • Turn them into gift tags by using cookie cutters or other shapes to cut out pictures from the front.
  • My personal favorite is to donate them to St. Jude's You can learn more about that HERE.
