Fortunately, being made of paper, business cards are among those items that can be chucked into the recycling bin. However, if you lean towards the creative side, there are a number of ways in which you can reuse these cards:
Nervous about your economics presentation? Tongue-tied about an intimidating phone conversation? Fear no more, you'll have all your points down thanks to your handy leftover business card cue cards! Discreet and the perfect hand-held size, these business cards will let you keep your major points in check as well as wave good-bye to the days of clunky index cards.
You've been left with your four year-old niece in a surprise babysitting scenario, with the minute hand ticking by slower than the rate of tectonic plate shifts. Only amateurs leap for the television remote; you have your business card matching game on hand! To prepare, just take all those leftover cards and either paint or color them in pairs on the blank side, and voila! The little child will be riveted; just don't be surprised when they beat you at the game.
Forget about Valentine's Day. Who knew your stodgy business cards could become one of your most romantic gestures? They're the perfect size as little notes to be left in your loved one's purse, under their pillow, or in their lunch bag. You get extra points if you decorate them with paint and glitter.
Take two cards, glue the printed sides together, take care of your 'To' and 'From', hole punch the corner, and use a ribbon to attach it to your thoughtful present. So long, five-dollar greeting cards.
Was it baking soda or baking powder you needed? Oh wait; you can just check your mini business card shopping list.
