Creative Uses for Free Photo Cards

During the holidays there seems to be dozens of offers for FREE photo cards. While it's nice to have a set of Christmas photo cards to send to family and friends, you can soon run out of people to send these cards to.

Here are a few other ideas to help make these free photo cards more versatile.

:: Cut photos off of cards and attach to the sticky side of magnetic paper (the type refrigerator business cards are attached to) to make photo fridge magnets for family or friends.

:: Cut photos off of cards and attach to cardstock paper. Laminate and attach with ribbon to baby's diaper bag or child's book bag as a nameless ID card.

:: Use photo cards as gift tags instead of having to write everyone's name over and over.

:: Plan for holidays ahead and take themed photos to use for Valentine's Day cards or Easter cards. Normally the free Christmas offers are on any design, not just Christmas ones.

:: Plan ahead and make birthday invitations for the coming year. You can even save a clipart picture to your computer and insert that instead of a photo of the child.

:: Use saved clip art to make general birthday, thank you, get well soon, or simply everyday cards.

Okay, time for my personal favorite.

:: Leave the photo cards blank except for the designs. Cover the undesigned space with a typed or written note on cardstock. Attach with double sided tape or punch two small holes and thread a ribbon through to hold the paper in place. If you get a lot of these blank cards you could even use them for wedding invitations.
