Don't Throw Away Those Cards
So, what to do with those beautiful cards?
- Use old cards as gift tags. Cut into squares
including decoration, and save for next year.
- Create cards for next year by cutting and pasting
parts of old cards onto a new blank card. You can purchase blank cards
at many craft stores, or buy 110 lb paper and fold into halves or quarters.
- Help children make Christmas decorations; but scenes
and paste inside egg shells, real, or plastic halves left over from Easter,
in construction paper frames, on broad ribbons to hang, in the middle of
bows removed from packages, or inside spray-painted jar lids.
- Finally, save a tree! Send electronic greeting
cards to all your friends, family and associates that have computers.
Wondering what to do with all those beautiful Christmas
cards you received? Don't throw them out! Put them to good use. The
front covers can be used to make a new card at St. Jude's Ranch for Children.
Proceeds from the sale of the cards are used to help children who have been
abused, neglected and abandoned. Those children are the ones that create
the new cards.
