    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!

    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.
