Each year I save our Christmas cards and use them the next year to decorate the Christmas presents instead of buying bows and name tags.

Old Holiday Greeting Cards As Gift Tags

This IS a good way to re-use old Christmas cards! Great idea! ...You could also do the same thing with kids birthday cards for birthday gifts!

Another one of my favorite ways to recycle Christmas cards is to Crochet around them to make hanging ornaments for the tree. I just got the idea from here on ThriftyFun from this post from last week: http://www.thriftyfun.com/tf35986354.tip.html (12/08/2008)

My daughter and I always enjoy making our own holiday gift tags every year, and they are cherished by the gift recipients. This year I received a gift in November that arrived in a department store gift box with a design of dots in holiday colors. Unfortunately, the gift giver had written on the box so I couldn't re-use it. Instead, I cut it up into gift tag-sized pieces, which my daughter and I are now busy decorating (12/09/2008)

I have made gift tags out of old cards for several years now. I just cut out part of the picture, punch a hole with a hole punch and attach with ribbon. This especially works well since I mostly use (and reuse) gift bags instead of wrapping paper. (12/09/2008)

My mom has done this since the sixties, and we still all do it. Makes really nice packages. I have noticed that people are not sending Christmas cards as much as they used to- I know I don't- I guess due to higher postage rates and the economy in general. My BIL's neighbors were kind enough to send us their cards after the holidays last year when he told them about our using them for gift tags. What a nice gesture. (01/08/2009)
