Recycle & Reuse – Wedding Cards to Envelopes
What do you do with all the extra wedding cards that are piled up after a wedding at home? Probably, you don’t even remember what happened to your wedding cards!
Don’t throw them away because here I’ll share a recycling idea that would make a very useful item from those left-over cards which are of no use anymore.
Envelopes! Yes, ever thought how you can re-use a beautiful wedding card by making it an envelope? No? So, this article is just for you.
Let’s get started.
Things required – Wedding cards, glue and a pair of scissors.
Step 1 – Tear off the written part of the card. For single layered cards, you can stick two cards to hide the written part.
Step 2 – Cut from the sides to give it a rectangular shape. You can use an old envelope to check the size and cut accordingly.
Step 3 – Cut along the length of the inner side of the card. Now, fold the outer side of the card to flip it over the inner side.
Step 4 – From the cover of the card, cut the address part and keep aside. Also, cut two equal folds from the cover which would be of the size of the breadth of the envelope.
Step 5 – Stick the two folds in the inner side of the card. This helps in creating some room inside the envelope.
Step 6 – Stick the address part on the back corner of the envelope.
Let it dry and your envelope is ready!
Six simple steps to make a very useful product out of waste. You can use this beautiful envelope for gifting cash, gift cards or vouchers to your friends and relatives. You can also use it for storing and sorting your personal things in your file.
So, next time you get an invitation or there is a wedding at home, you know what to do with that Wedding Card!
