Update: UpCycle Your Christmas Cards!

This is a subject I previously posted.

What Do You Do With Your Old Christmas Cards?

If you are like me, and I'm almost ashamed to admit this, but they usually get thrown away!  I can't stand the feel of clutter and Christmas cards just pile up year after year!  I can't stand looking at them stuffed in a drawer.  I save the ones with heartfelt notes in them, usually sent by my Grandmother :), and toss the rest. 

Boy oh boy, do I wish I would have saved them all now!  It occurred to me while trying to think of ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle (RRR as my kids would say!)...."Why not reuse Christmas cards?"  And I don't mean putting paper over the original sender's name and resending next year, although that would save you a bundle too!  ;)  Why not make cute Christmas gifting tags from the cards?  This would also save you money AND fit into your very own Zero Dollar Christmas budget!  I'm sure the original sender could appreciate seeing the cards reused in such a thoughtful, creative way.
