Hello there & thanks for tuning in today.
I hope your weekend went well.
This week's tip is inspired by the "going green revolution".
What I mean to say is...we are recycling, upcycling & going full cycle by revamping our cards.
I don't mean the ones we make, I mean the ones we get.
There are a couple of ways you can accomplish this recycling revolution.
Here are a few ideas I have for giving them new life.
1- Make gift tags out of them using a die cut pattern or tracing a tag you may already own.
2- Use your punches or your die cutting machines to cut certain parts of your cards in different shapes that you can use to build another card.
3- Cut out the inside phrases of the cards and adhere them on to coordinating cardstock then use them for the sentiment in your own hand-made cards.
4- Make a mini card album for each year where you use all the cards you have received & saved & add a photo of the sender.
5- If you don't want to part with them or disect them, simply wrap beautiful ribbon around a stack of cards & place a handwritten tag with the year on your ribbon & display on a coffee table or place in a keepsake box.
I hope these ideas get your creative juices flowing.
Have a great week!
