         2. Reuse for projects such as:
            a) Cut up cards to use for gift tags or bookmarks.
            b) Create new cards by cutting and pasting old card fronts onto blank cardstock.
            c) Make children’s arts and crafts projects such as Christmas tree ornaments.

         3. Donate to others for reuse in craft projects. Call first.
