Re-use Invitations

Year after year, I received numerous party invitation. I normally collect them and gather them in a box. One day, I was not able to source for photos for a school project for the kids. Then I remembered those invites. You know what happened next:

Anyway here is a few good reasons why you should keep them as well:

  1. Use them to spice up your child's school projects
  2. Put them in an album altogether with your most memorable party photos. They can decorate your scrapbooks as well.
  3. Cut out the characters and turn them into paper dolls. They'll make nice giveaways for your child's friends.
  4. Help your child create his very own comic book. Glue the cutouts onto folded pieces of paper. Draw balloons next to the characters for writing wacky quotes.
So the next time you receive an invites, you know what to do.

Great idea! I also reuse old materials to make a photo and pen holder. I spent nothing on it plus it now showcases the photo of my cute Aspin dog Chuchie.

Any suggestions on what to do with a wedding invitation with Swarovski crystals? I normally throw them away (because I'm not the sentimental type), but this one, nasa-sayangan ako sa Swarovski haha.
