I saw this in an advice column a couple of weeks ago and thought it was a great idea!

Basically, they recycle used cards to raise money and teach kids entreprenurship.

sometimes preschools want them for art projects.

I'm trying to cut down on clutter...and more people send me e-mail cards that snail mail...but someone I know had a coffee table with a glass top and made a montage of vintage holiday cards to put underneath the glass for a Xmas decoration. Very nice idea

When my son was young we'd save the last years cards to use as decoration for the next year - we'd create a collage to hang on the fridge, and use others to make cut outs and attach to the front door as a way to greet guests.

The best exercise in the world is to bend down and help someone up.

I took all my Christmas cards down yesterday. There seem to be a few shops around where they collect them for recycling, or I could just put them out with the paper and card recycling. A pity, because some of them are beautiful hand made cards.

What does anyone else do with their cards?
