    I use ours with my clients at work. The prettiest are decopauged onto those $3 wood trays from AC Moore, then sold for $15 each!

    Lori - that is a really cute idea for the table cover. Thanks for sharing that.

    Thumbs up recycle some of last year's holiday cards

    use part of the picture on the front of the card to make a bookmark. Laminate or contact paper and hole punch and add some ribbon.

    Now this is an adorable idea...if I had saved the cards from last year I would make some. Seems I'm only a packrat when I can't do anything with the stuff I keep LOL

    i saved last years cards to make ornaments. cut circles out of the fronts. then on the circles i drew a triangle (all 3 sides the same length and the 3 points touching the edge of the circle) score the lines of the triangle and fold up the flaps. then you glue 8 of them together in a line. when it's laying flat they will alternate, point up, point down, etc. then glue the first and the last one together. you now have a ring. you take 4 more for the top and glue them together but this time you want all of them to have the points up. you end up with a little cone shape. do the same thing again to make a bottom. glue the top to the ring then glue the bottom to the ring. the flaps should all be facing out and you can either attach a string to it for hanging or just make a few to put in a bowl on a table. martha stewart sells a kit to make them with everything precut if you want to see what they look like, but they aren't hard to make without a kit.

    I used some to make name tags for the gifts this year and I used others to decorate goodie bags I made for the girls in my GA's class. I cut out the card front (or picture portion of it) with decorative edged scissors, glued it to the front of a brown paper lunch bag, put the goodies inside, turned the top down a couple of times and punched two holes through, and tied it closed with curling ribbon.

    I cut out the patterns on the cards to make bookmarks or gift tags for presents. I have also used these cut outs when I'm creative to help me make my own greeting cards.
