Shared Earth Christmas Card

Well yesterday was twelfth night (5th Jan) so we should have taken down our decorations including our cards by now. I thought it was a good time to suggest saving your Christmas cards for reuse, and give you a few ideas on how to use them.

I don’t buy any gift tags I always use the previous year’s Christmas cards, the very small cards are good for this, as all you need to do is remove the back with the greeting on, punch a hole in it and thread a piece of string through and you have a tag.

Make your own Homemade Christmas cards for next year by cutting pictures out of Christmas cards and sticking them on to card blanks.

Cut 2 circles out of Christmas cards stick them together with a piece of ribbon as a loop to make a decoration to go on the Christmas tree.

If you don’t fancy getting crafty with Christmas cards then make sure you recycle them, most can be recycled through your kerbside recycling collection. Or check out Recycle Now to find out where to recycle your Christmas cards.
