I purchased two sets of cards for $1.00. There were 18 cards and 18 envelopes (this price is cheap enough just for the envelopes).
I then covered the front and back of the card with scrapbook paper that I have in high supply here at my house. I just measured the card and then cut the paper the same size. I attached it with tape and added another piece of paper for embellishment and a clip art image to the front.
I covered the holiday message inside the card with some more scrapbook paper and some cutouts and added a title using Microsoft Word.
And the end result, is a card you can use for any occasion for less than $.03!!!!
I saw this idea on Rachel Ray and thought it was very clever. If you have those pieces of Christmas paper that are too little for another present or maybe just a little bit of the roll left and don't want to store it or maybe you don't like storing already opened rolls, just run the paper through your shredder. You can then use the shredded paper to fill up gift baskets or gift bags throughout the year!
Nobody will be able to tell it's Christmas paper because the images are so small now!
I bought this last year after Christmas to actually use as my tree skirt, but I saw them on clearance and thought that this could make a great felt board. You could just lay it out on the floor like this or take some plywood board and staple the felt onto it.
Your felt pieces should stick just fine, mine did!
I was able to pick up some holiday garland for our tree next year for just $.10 cents a package. I was able to think of another use though...
