Like probably everyone else out thier I seem to have a ton of greeting cards.  Does anyone do anything with them besides either throw them out or let them sit and collect more dust?  If so please let me know what.

Thank you

I like to reuse the pictures on mine to make my own greeting cards. I also sometimes frame the ones I REALLY like... you can also use them in a collage... decorate a wall with them - make a purse or wallet with them... um... I cant think of anything else quick and easy at the moment.


Be what you would seem to be - or, if you'd like it put more simply - never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.

yeah, I like the idea about reusing the pictures to make your own cards

After the appropriate time. the card comes down off the desk, mantel,
pegboard or likewise,  I grab pair of sissors and snip off the the front of the card.  I lightly  pencil the name of the sender on the back side,then toss it into my "card making box" for another time. The name on the back reminds me not to send that particular card to the person who sent it to me. Tongue

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.

I need to learn how to make greeting cards.  I hate having to go buy a card everytime you need one.  It seems as if you are always buying them to sometimes.

There's a group of senior citizens in my town who collect used greeting cards (yeah recycling!) and then make bookmarkers out of them.  They pass the finished products out for free, like at the library, at the schools, etc.  It's a pretty awesome program!  But, if you don't have tons of people to give bookmarkers to, you could try re-using your used greeting cards by making new paper out of them!  If you're interested, check out this link:

if you cut the front and back apart, you can make little boxes out of the cards.  the back of the card is the bottom and the front is the top.  I don't have a pattern but you can probably find one online.

found one!

You can also use them for gift tags, especially during the holidays.  Just cut out part of the card, write the To: and From: on the back, punch a hole in the corner and tie it on with ribbon.

On occassion I have cut the front off the card and used it as a postcard.
