Recycle Christmas and Greeting Cards with My Friend TeriC
Submitted by Pam on Wed, 09/26/2012 - 23:04
Today I am celebrating "90 Days Until Christmas"! And I am celebrating in two ways - testing out three different recipes for Speculaas cookies and sharing with all of you a most excellent idea for reusing all those "way too pretty to toss out" holiday (and birthday) cards.
Every one of you has a stash of them - right? Well - here is a really great way to turn them into sketch books, journals, notebooks or even mini scrap books - a brainstorm that recently visited my friend Teri over at Teri's Painted Daisies.
Teri used a greeting card in her tutorial, but I immediately thought of all those beautiful holiday cards I can not bear to part with.
Reminded me of a little book Diane made for each family member one year designed to hang on the tree as a place to write down special Christmas memories.
(I still have it and would be showing you a picture if I could remember which box I packed it in last year!) But these would be great for this purpose. Make one for everyone in the family.
Teri's post got me to thinking - little booklets made from cards would also be so handy for storing gift lists, shopping lists, gifts to make and supplies needed, garment sizes, Christmas card lists……… You get the picture!
Pop over to Teri's tutorial, pull out those cards that rarely see the light of day and make booklets - to give as sketch books, note books, mini journals! You only have 90 more days to prepare!
