Holiday Giveaways

Happy Holidays! This giveaway is part of The Holiday Gift Guide: Season of Giving Giveaways. Check back daily for new giveaways and gift ideas for everyone on your list!

It happens every holiday season.   The girls and I rush to the mailbox, looking for holiday cards from friends and family.   We rip them open to proudly display in our home.   Then, the New Year comes and I debate.   I could keep them, but what would I do with them?   They’d just be more clutter.   So, in the end, I throw them away.   This year, make your holiday card the one that doesn’t end up in the trash!

The Greenfield Paper Company makes cards, stationary, business cards, journals, and so much more that all 100% green and all-natural.   My favorite feature though is their Grow-a-Note cards.   The cards themselves are high-quality and absolutely beautiful.   But the cool part is that   each card is packed full of small seeds and you can plant the entire card in the ground to grow wildflowers, so your card will last all year long.

Every person I’ve shown these to, immediately asks where I got them and is tickled by the idea!   Honestly, I can try hard to explain them, but as I was told myself, you really have to see them to completely grasp how unique they are!

About Greenfield Paper Company: Green Field Paper handmade paper has been crafted one sheet at a time in San Diego, California. Their machine-made Hemp Heritage  paper is manufactured in New England, home of the first American paper mills. Their handmade paper includes Grow A Note ® seed embedded plantable paper, our 100% Junk Mail ® infused with our own junk mail paper, and many more.

Perfect Gift For… Family, Friends, Gardeners, Co-Workers, Kids, Anyone

If they are photo cards, I cut out the photo and put it in our “people book”, a photo album that I made to help our children recognize friends and family whom we don’t often see. If it’s a notecard, I keep the sentimental ones (one or two each year), and send the fronts of the rest to a childrens’ charity that uses them in craft projects.

SO this is my first go at this site. With all my old christmas cards, I have a system. If the person lives far away or they write a note or family update in the card I keep them all in a keepsake box. I will also keep the card if its the first card I recieve from them as a married couple ( I have a ton of those coming this year). If they are simple or people I see everyday I just tear off the top of the card and keep that and date it. The rest I recycle after New Years.

I keep the ones I like in photo albums!

I donate my cards to St. Jude’s Ranch ( I love reusing the materials and supporting the kids at St. Jude’s Ranch at the same time!

7 Lisa Anderson November 30, 2010 at 7:49 PM

I keep all the pictures, but I toss the cards and letters. We keep the pictures in a basket on the dinner table and pray for a few families each night before we eat.

Some I save and cut up to use as gift tags next year, some I give to my sister for my nephews to use during their craft time, and this year I want to try to use some to add into scrapbook pages. When I was a kid I would get most of our cards after New Years to make recycled ‘notebooks’ for me to draw and write in throughout the year. I loved being able to go thru the ‘books’ and remember who the cards came from and tell my parents why that person or family was special to me and our family.

These are the coolest!!

19 Alicia C. December 7, 2010 at 3:56 PM

I cut the fronts off and save them for next year, then the kids and I make our own cards to send out with them.

I put the cards with pictures and letters in a photo album that I take out every Christmas. The cards without family photos are donated to the local retirement homes where the residents cut out the pictures and turn them into greeting cards sold in their shop.
