This year instead of throwing out your cards pick your favorites and reuse them!
These homemade bookmarks make great gifts as well, and are a good size for a stocking stuffer. Most of the time the back of the card’s cover is white which makes it perfect to personalize with a special note.
This is a good reason to save the ribbons on your presents and reuse them as well for the bookmarks.
To make the bookmarks sturdier to better protect them from spills or little mouths that try to chew them, laminate the bookmarks with self adhesive laminate sheets found at most office supply stores.
Trying making this gift for someone using their family holiday photo card.
If you are giving the gift of a book add one of these personalized homemade bookmarks to the outside of the gift wrap.
This is a project you can do year round with birthday and other special cards you receive.
Recycling is great, but let’s not forget about the other R’s and reuse too!
