Too Pretty To Toss - Repurpose Christmas Cards and Ribbon

Repurposed Christmas Cards and Ribbon
for Treat Bags
For about the last 5 years, I've made Christmas treat bags for the employees of my husband's small company.  They are filled with homemade cookies, breads and sweets.
I keep most of the Christmas cards that we receive and also pretty ribbon used on gifts from relatives and friends.
To put a dent in my hoard of cards and ribbons, I used #6 brown kraft paper bags and decorated them with the fronts of the Christmas cards and used the ribbon to tie them up.
Here's pictures of a finished bag, a bag waiting for treats and  the card waiting to be repurposed and the sentiments from the inside of the card.   You can use these as gift tags, or use make your own cards.  The fronts of cards can be repurposed into new cards or gift tags.
