For me, the best way I help the Earth while crafting is simple: reuse, reuse, reuse. I keep scraps of paper, paper that’s only been printed on one side, and lots of odds and ends. I figure the inspiration will come to me and I’ll reuse these things for something.
Turning My Wedding Response Cards into Notecards
I included some of the invitation response cards from our wedding in my wedding scrapbook.
The thing is, I could not get rid of the rest of them. They were professionally printed on very hefty stock. I racked my brain to figure out something neat to do.
I was picking up my craft space and saw a bunch of greeting cards, catalogs and other things I was saving. These aren’t new cards – they are cards I received that I thought were pretty. Why not reuse them?
The rest is simple! I glued each response card down to a picture/card, leaving the blank side facing up. Glue first, cut second. This way you get a clean edge.
That’s it! Now I have an interesting set of notecards that I can tuck in envelopes whenever I have to send something. Or I can send them on their own if I want to send someone a “just because” note.
