Snow and Graham Leftovers

Since getting my new Snow and Graham Calendar I’ve been wondering what to do with my old one. The beautiful designs are just too beautiful to throw away. So I stuck the yellow ones in some frames. 
And the rest I turned into cards and gift tags! 
Now I have a bunch of beautiful cards for any occasion!

    What a fun and creative way to give those beautiful designs a new life! Now I'm trying to think of something to do this with.

    What a great idea! I love re-using pieces of things that most people would just throw away. Those patterns are just fabulous!

    What a smart idea! Sometimes I see such pretty scrapbook paper at the store but don't know what to do with it. lol! Gift tags are a great idea! What type of glue or glue stick do you have the best results with? Thx for posting!

    I agree with everyone else what a wonderful idea! And some of those gift tags match with their wrapping paper.

    great idea to frame them!
    i have that calendar from last year, and i've been thinking of ways to use it.
    i also used part of it to make a mini-calendar for this year, but i think i'll have to frame some too!

    What a great idea! The tags are fun! I'm new to Snow and Graham. I'm eyeing some fun holiday cards….thinking ahead already. I'm glad you introduced me to them!

    Kirsten, what are you doing up at 4am!

    Perfect! A great example of re-using. Upcycling is always more unique than buying new, plus it's very economical 🙂

    Cute idea!! Love how you recycle – too beautiful to waste! 🙂

    I love this idea! I used pics from a calendar years ago and did a grouping in my daughter's room. There were very traditional botanicals and I framed six of them. Your example is way more hip and fun! love it. M.
