What's in the Cards for You?

www.idealbite.comWhat’s the fate of 2008’s holiday cards?

The Bite
Their future holds reuse as gift tags. Call us psychic, but we’re betting you’re not planning to reread every single card you receive this season, so instead, grab some scissors and turn them into to-from tags. It’s their destiny.

The Benefits

  • More trees for tarot cards (or something). Our crystal balls (and industry stats) predict that about 90% of all U.S. households will buy greeting cards, but few will be recycled.
  • Predicting appreciation from giftees. One-of-a-kind gift tags are a great personal touch.
  • Good fortune. You might never have to buy another gift tag again (which can cost $15 a box).
  • A divine lesson in reuse. Grab some pinking shears, and give the kids a right-brain workout.

Jen from Renewable Choice Says:  "I often re-use parts of holiday cards for the next year.  If the half of the card with the image or design is not written on, and it will still be an appropriate message or image the next year, cut it off neatly and re-use it.  Another option is to cut out bits and pieces of old or used holiday cards and paste them collage style onto a new or re-useable card for next year."
