Minted in the News
The holiday season is a great time to get in touch with family and friends, and there's no better way to reconnect with your long-distance relatives than by sending out holiday cards! It can be an expensive ordeal to purchase a bunch of cards for every single contact in your address book and buy the postage to get them there. But a Minted promotion code can get you 20 percent off your holiday cards, so the only thing you have to worry about is what to write!
If your family receives a lot of cards during the holiday season, you may wonder what to do with all of them. Rather than just piling them together and forgetting about them, you should consider using them to jazz up your decorations.
One idea that's easy to pull off is to create a card tree. Just fill a glass vase with marbles, stones, cranberries or anything else you think would look nice, then find a tree branch in your backyard. Try to pick one that will be big enough to hold all of your cards, but not so big as to overcrowd your living room! Then, stick the branch into the vase and use ribbon and a hole punch to string up your cards.
You could also make a card sash to hang over your doorways. Simply find a festive ribbon and cut it so that it goes on top of the doorway and hangs down on either side. Then, attach the cards to it. It's as simple as that!
No matter how you choose to display your cards, your family will be able to look at the holiday designs and read what your family members have to say. Pass on the card display ideas to your family and friends so they can do the same with your cards - for cheap!
