Recycle Your Christmas Cards!

I love to save our Christmas cards to use for crafting. I especially like to use them for decorating packages and as gift tags, either whole or cut into cute shapes.  But it seems like I never use them all!

Thanks to Katie of Kitchen Stewardship, I found out about sending my old cards to the St. Jude's Ranch . The children there take cards for all occasions, not just Christmas, and turn them into new cards to sell.

Last night I sorted through my stack of Christmas cards (several year's worth!) and kept a small stack of my favorites to use for gift tags next year and got the rest ready to donate!

This is a really easy way to donate to a good cause! And you're recycling at the same time!

How do you reuse or recycle your old Christmas cards?

I have heard of this - recently... but forgot about it. Thanks for the reminder.

I like to save my old cards, too. I use them for gift tags, postcards, and ornaments.
