We've all gotten greeting cards before. But have you ever received a card
that was hand made from the person who was giving it? I bet most people would realize that a hand made card is a lot more special than any store bought choice. Making a card yourself takes time and effort. And you actually have to write the words! Anyone can do it, but rarely does anyone take the time. In today's world it is easier to pick one up while at the grocery store, and pay a few bucks for convenience. Sure, store bought cards are still very nice and thoughtful, but I encourage, if you have the time, make one yourself.
Its easy! And fun! And you will feel a sense of accomplishment when
it's done. It is good for the soul to be creative and encouraging to others, so what better way than to say "Thank You, I Love You, or Happy Birthday"
to someone you care about? Being creative is also a great way to rid stress from our lives. Take some time out and tell others just how much
you really appreciate and care about them.
Reuse/Recycle past greeting cards.
Use old magazines for clipping pictures and words.
