How to: reuse old birthday cards

Here’s a quick project for our Green Birthday Guide that is so simple I’m almost embarrassed to share it.

Instead of throwing away the cards you get in the mail, turn them into postcards.

First cut off the top of the card, and toss the back in the recycling bin.  We like to use a corner shaper from the craft store to round our corners.

Then stick on a stamp, and you have a whole new postcard ready to go.

Wait? Have special cards you want to keep? I always put mine all together in this.
