Dear Creative Recycler and Crafter

How many beautiful holiday cards have you thrown away over the years?

Cards that were printed on paper from many many trees. Cards with glossy full color images from chemical inks. Printed on presses that run on electricity and fuel. Cards that were transported to warehouses and then to the shop near you. The shop which you then travelled to and from by car or public transport.
Do you see the long chain of costs and expenses associated with each card?

Stop the waste! Those graphics were created by professional designers and make fabulous crafting material – in sturdy cardstock to boot! They are just waiting for the new life you can give them for mere pennies and cents!

55 LOVELY PROJECTS
45 CRAFT TEMPLATES

Suggestions for recycling Christmas cards are easy to find, but finding the perfect template crafts is not. These templates are ready and scaled to size.

And while recycling suggestions mostly involve the making of yet more cards, this two-part set has instructions, color photo's of each project and a collection of templates to create beautiful and durable new items like:

• FABULOUS SCRAPBOOKING
• PRETTY PACKAGING
• LITTLE PERSONAL GIFTS
• FUN FAVORS
• SMALL TOKENS OF APPRECIATION
• CREATIVE CONTAINERS


SET WITH BOTH PRODUCTS: 
PDF E BOOK PLUS TEMPLATES $9.99

I am a professional graphic and packaging designer and really enjoyed creating these projects and putting together the template crafts for you.
I am also an enthusiastic recycler and hate throwing things away. Especially things that are in perfect condition and that were lavishly produced.

When I finally had a box overflowing with holiday cards, I decided to do something with them. I couldn't bear chucking them out. I went through the templates that I use for both my off-line and on-line designs, and started to adapt them to make new goodies from my cards.

Once I got going I couldn't stop. Its addictive. You have been warned.
I soon found myself with 55 practical and durable items which I am now sharing with you. It feels so good to create something beautiful from existing goods. I found that recycling Christmas cards was a thrift fix!

Many of the projects are for items with a long second life. What's the point of creating yet another pile of throwaways?

The set contains an e-book with 50 pretty projects and 40 craft templates.
• Most projects are great for any greeting cards and not just the holidays.
• Each project has a color photo, instructions, ideas, tips and variations.
• More instructions are with the templates.
• These template crafts are a treasure trove and suitable for other crafts too. 
The templates alone make this set so worthwhile. Crafters will love having this handy collection of craft templates on hand for any paper craft project.
• All the templates can be conveniently printed on letter size or A4 cardstock and are in economical black outline shapes. So super easy on ink!
• You can print most of the templates straight on to patterned cardstock for regular paper crafts, but you need to print the template lines on the back of the patterned cardstock, as they were designed to be actual templates for tracing off onto cards. The template lines will then be on the inside of the product.
• Make these projects for yourself or sell at craft fairs and at fundraising events. Involve clubs and youth groups. Use for school art and craft projects. Great for teachers, moms, crafters and craft groups.
• The projects range from super easy to easy, plus a few more challenging ones for seasoned crafters.
• They're suitable for a range of age groups and are perfect for craft classes.
• You will find that many projects are suitable for children if they can cut with scissors and swing a glue stick or tape.
• They fit into various time allocations too. Some are quick for volume production, while others are more time consuming for your own makes.
