The design was hand drawn and then scaned into the computer. With the help of photoshop I created my wording and design. Each piece of paperbag was cut to the size of 8.5x11 and then put into the printer just like regular paper. Then I added a slash of red paint on the nose of the reindeer. How fun would it be if I got one of these back next year!

My ECO CHIC Christmas Cards
This year I decided to do double duty on the "Green Movement" by creating a Christmas card made from a paper bag (recycling #1) and then transforming it into a card that can be reused (recycling #2) . I always am stumped at what to do with cards when I am done with a holiday, birthday, or event so hopefully will alleviate that stress for others.The cards are very similar to my paper bag tutorial except I folded up an inch and a half to create a pocket. The pocket is great because the recipient can simply remove my note and then add their own and then resend.
