Recycle your Christmas cards by using them to decorate tissue boxes for gift giving. Nursing homes and other long term living facilities may not provide a softer tissue for residents.
Cut the inside greeting of the card, and make a personalized gift tag for the special person you are giving it to.
These are very useful gifts for those who are shut in, in long term living facilities, or anyone on a very tight budget.
Note: Use greeting cards of any type to make special tissue boxes for other holidays, seasons, get well, and birthdays. Buy tissues when they are on sale, especially when schools start up for new school years. Tissues are typically sold at low prices during back-to-school sales.
