How to Recycle Playing Cards

Are you missing cards from a deck of playing cards? Don't throw them out! You can find new uses for them.

1. Re purpose them for gift tags. For Christmas, use a cookie cutter to cut a shape and simply write your "to" and "from" on the card. Punch a hole with a one-hole punch and tie on a piece of scrap string, ribbon, yarn, or cording.

2. Simply punch a hold and tie on a string, scrap piece of yarn or thread.  Use as a Christmas Tree ornament.

3. Punch holes all the way around the playing card.  Single crochet through every hole, making a Christmas Tree ornament.
