DIY Crafts: 33 Ways to Recycle Gift Cards, Credit Cards, and Other Plastic Cards
Do you have a stack of gift cards in your wallet thanks to Christmas? Once you finish spending, recycle your gift card into amazing DIY crafts!
I don’t know about you, but I received a ton of gift cards for Christmas. It seems that gift cards are becoming more and more popular every year– they’re easy to buy and the recipient can choose their own perfect gift. While gift cards are convenient, all of the plastic that goes into making them are not-so-eco-friendly (there are few “green” plastic cards). Instead of trashing the cards after spending, recycle them! You can also use credit cards (be careful with your personal information, though) and other plastic cards like hotel keys and store reward cards. Here are 33 incredible ways you can repurpose them:
Jewelry and Accessories
Home and Garden
16. Use a Gift Card as an Ice Scraper
