Recycling greeting cards and boxes
Greeting cards tend to accumulate and pile up, year after year, while you've probably been throwing away all those boxes that your new stereo set, new pair of jogging shoes and new mobile phone and a host of other stuff comes packed in.
Here's a way to recycle these items.
You'll need old greeting cards with nice designs, scissors, cello tape or glue and a couple of old boxes which you'd like to decorate.
Cut out the designs from the cards (usually on the front cover, but sometimes there could be a design on the back or the inside cover that you prefer) and stick them onto the boxes in a way that covers up logos, price tags or other markings on the boxes.
You can either use these boxes to put gifts in, or just keep them as storage containers.
