My Recycled Business Cards

June 9, 2010 11 comments

Ever wonder what to do with all that junk mail? Some of it is very pretty — like those colorful gardening and flower magazines. Well I’ve been saving them along with old greeting cards, cereal boxes, and other junk mail to create my own recycled business cards and tags.

Here are some tags I made using old greeting cards and junk mail. I cut out the tag shapes using this die-cutter I purchased. I then used my green line stamp to stamp the backs of the tags creating my business cards. I chose to use a tag shape as I can use these to attach to my products as well as use them as business cards.

Above are more flower catalogs and greeting cards that I cut using my die-cutter. I plan to use these as gift tags for birthdays and Christmas. Just punch a hole at the top and attach a piece of yarn or ribbon to finish off the recycled gift tags.

So whether you need business cards, gift tags or both, consider recycling your junk mail and cards. They are very pretty and unique tags and a wonderful way to make your own business cards.
