Use Inserts From Magazines For Greeting Cards

Here is a craft idea. The inserts that come in all magazines for subscriptions and other advertisements. I use those as bases for my greeting cards. Some of them are as heavy as cardstock paper. I just cover the card with whatever decoration I am using and then glue the card to another piece of card stock. This also gives my cards a 3d effect. I recycle, enhance my craft and it's cheap.

That's a great idea. I always pull those inserts out of magazines as soon as I receive them. It's difficult to look at magazines with those attached. Better to recycle them than toss in the trash. Thanks for a great idea.
