    Friend!!!!!!
    there are hundreds of ways to recycle the old into new.
    1.Use as Gift Package Tags ...Cut the greeting cards up into gift tags for presents. Simply cut a strip or rectangle out of the card, fold it down the middle, and write the "to" and "from" in it.

    2.Make bookmarks. ....Cut the greeting card into strips about an inch and a half (4cm) wide and 6 inches (15cm) long. Punch a hole near one end and add a tassel. Tuck a homemade bookmark into each book you give away.

    3.Make a new greeting card. Glue the front cover of the card onto a new, blank card. If you want, you can also redecorate or improve upon the design of the card and add your own new embellishments.

    4.Use for Decoupage/collage - Cut out pictures and use to decoupage onto small boxes, frames, tables, etc

    5.Scrapbooking! You can either cut out small portions and pictures from the cards or use the card in whole to go along with the pictures on your scrapbook page.

    Try out these simple cyclic tips.Then naturally you will buy more new cards to make them old to do all these fun. :biglaugh
