Do you guys recycle your Xmas cards? I cut out the prettiest parts and make gift tags out of them. What do you do??

My personal favourites are Plato's home made ornaments, I particularly like his depiction of Zeus, like a tiny whiny little man scared of his mother. All good stuff.

I guess after thousands of years ahead of us, you've perfected creative ideas. In our house unfortunately it's a competition on who can buy the most expensive and prettiest christmas wrapping paper, cards, etc etc. This have made me into a nice little beaver who hoards everything from last year, like an old aunt I fold it up neatly and save it. Perhaps your idea is a good opportunity to actually use it again.

I remember when I was in grade school we would take old cards cut out the images that we liked and created our own winter or Xmas scene on a big piece of cardboard. I don't think she was amused when I had Mrs Claus trying to climb down the chimney and Santa up in the tree!!
