Goodbye, Christmas. Welcome back, Wedding Planning!

Christmas is my favorite holiday, hands down. I love everything about it – the tree, the lights, the decorations, the food, the music (with a few exceptions – Santa Baby, Feliz Navidad, Mele Kalikimaka – they should be banned from the airwaves!), the cards, spending time with family, giving and receiving…I love it all! I am always sad to see it end so quickly.

Speaking of Christmas cards, what do you usually do with them once the holidays are over? Some people save them from year to year to keep a running tally of who to send to the following year, some discard them on the 26th. For the bride and groom that are trying to think of any way they can save money (not just wedding related!), I have a SUPER easy DIY and green way to reuse those cards – cut them up and make gift tags. You can then just pack them away in the Christmas box for next year. You’ll never have to spend additional money on tags again. Plus, almost all Christmas cards are gorgeous, so they’ll make a perfect addition to the top of any present.

Happy cutting!
