Handmade greeting cards

Here is an easy way to combine cleaning and crafting. While filling out my 2010 calendar last week, I was reminded how bad I am at sending cards for birthdays and special events. I recalled my stash of store bought "blank cards" that I keep to send, but just felt uninspired by them. Then I had an idea, and took my old unused greeting cards, and remade them into fun, unique ones (that I hopefully will remember to send?) It was a great way to reuse cards I already had, use up some extra scrapbooking materials, and stay organized for the year. I've paper clipped them inside each month in my calendar, so I can just fill them out and send!

  2. These are so adorable and very creative. I am also relieved that someone else out there has trouble actually getting the cards in the mail!
