Green Christmas Cards

I made these Christmas cards from reused waste card from the office, reused wrapping paper and reused wrappers from fair trade chocolate bars.

They're fantastic - well done. I recognize the fair trade wrapping. Because I eat too much chocolate...

I admire how you find the time. Although I have to say inspired me to send a recycled postcard earlier this week.

Lovely!
The small boys make their own Christmas cards every year, most usually, it must be said, from the one's we received the previous year. With dinosaur and robot additions.

Love it! We had a class in October & we took left over cardstock for the card & cut out shapes from all of those magazines that end up in your mailbox!
(love that you used the chocolate bar wrapper!)

Lovely card.
And anything that involves chocolate is good. :)

Very nice use of recycled paper! If I sent Christmas cards I'd probably do the same. I do make the occasional card or postcard and like the reuse paper, though.

By Golly CGP ... you are getting a wind-mill and a solar panel in your sock from SC this year!

Jacquie said...

Nicely done (I'm always on the lookout for new ways to use found materials and good excuses for eating more chocolate!)

Nicole said...

Have I mentioned lately that your cards are awesome?

The cards are a great idea - a really constructive way to recycle.
