Recycled Christmas Cards

On of my favorite things to do between Thanksgiving and Christmas, is go to Craft Fairs with my daughter. Our favorite is the European Market. While there this year, the nicest lady insisted on giving me a couple of lovely old glass pinecone ornaments (which I collect!). Not only did she gift me the ornaments, but she also insisted on wrapping them in tissue paper and putting them in a wonderful paper bag with a really cute picture on the front.

When I got home and unpacked my treasures, I discovered that the lovely bag was just an everyday Kraft bag with the front of a Christmas Card taped to it! And that got me to thinking...I could use some of my prettier cards I received this year to put together some of my own gift bags!

I ordered some red and white Kraft paper bags off Amazon (I found 25 for $12.99). When I got them, I went through all the lovely cards I had received this year (lamenting all the pretty and fun cards I have thrown away in the past). I cut off the personalized page and glued the pretty seasonal card front on the largest flat side of a bag. That's it. That was all it took to make a nice stack of pretty seasonal gift bags for next year.

I cannot wait to see what pretty and fun cards we get for other holidays and occasions this year!
