Recycle Baby Shower Cards: 4 Ways
Our friend Robyn came to Prudent Baby with a great crafty question...
"Do you know of any good projects that use all the cards we got for Zane at his baby showers?"
So in addition to our recent DIY for origami boxes, we pulled together a few more ideas.
If you are a sentimental nerd AND a stationary geek (like me) you might not want to actually cut your cards. Simply display them on a ribbon or bakers twine with tiny clothes pins. These are from Paper Source, but I recently saw them at Michael's, in the wood isle.
If you can bear to take to your cards with scissors (or have a copier, he he), here are three more...
Take this tip from Amesh and glue your cards to wood (or cardboard) blocks. You can also mix it up and add some baby photos and pretty decorative papers. Mod Podge would also be excellent for this but beware of using mod Podge with the (typically) water-soluble ink in home printers, it will run.
Make a mobile. Punch your art out of the cards using a Large Craft Punch. Glue circles of decorative paper to the back side with ribbon sandwiched in-between. Tie the ribbons to an embroidery hoop covered in decorative paper.
Or use the circle punched cards sandwiched with ribbon and make an adorable garland.
Does anyone have other ideas for Robyn?
