You've more than likely got a slew of Christmas cards piling up. Rather than just chuck them in the recycle bin, upcycle them into postcards.

Organisation blog Unclutterer asked their readers what they did to recycle and purge seasonal left overs. Among the clever responses was a tip on turning them into postcards:
I recycle my Christmas cards. They arrive in the mail, I read them, I cut the writing off the back, I turn them into a Christmas post card with a friend's address, stamp and short message and repost immediately.
Obviously you might want to save the ones with "MERRY CHRISTMAS" emblazoned on the front for next Christmas, but many holiday-themed cards could be sent as thinking-of-you postcards even after Christmas has passed.
