How to Recycle Your Holiday Cards

If you know me, then you know I look for ways to recycle everything. These are my two favorite ways to reuse all those wonderful Christmas cards: 

Keep them. Cut the top part of the card off and re-use next year as a gift tag. Put bottom (written on part) in your recycle bin.

Here's one I did this year using a card from last year.
Or,  Send your cards to St. Jude's Ranch. Here's the link for more info:

The St. Jude's Recycled Card Program is operated by Kids’ Corp., a program for the children at St. Jude’s Ranch to learn entrepreneurship skills, the children participate in making the new cards by removing the front and attaching a new back. The result is a beautiful new card made by the children and volunteers. The benefits are two-fold: customers receive “green” holiday cards for use and the children receive payment for their work and learn the benefits and importance of “going green.”

Please post how you reuse your cards, I love hearing other people's ideas!

Merry Christmas!
