Repurpose and Celebrate the Holidays

Posted on November 29, 2015 by Anna Carin-Hart

My family receives cards from around the world for loads of different holidays.  If you are anything like me, those cards end up at the bottom of desk drawers and boxes in closets.  I'll be the first to admit, I am more then slightly sentimental. I feel badly throwing away something that represents someone else thinking of me and taking the time to write and post a card.  

During a recent house purge, my nine year old daughter, Zoe, had the creative idea of using these piles of cards to decorate our SnapSacks.  

She set about organising the cards into their respective holidays and then designing a SnapSack handbag for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Next weekend, she will tackle Chinese New Year, Easter and other holidays.

This SnapSack doubles as a trick-or-treating bag.  Much more stylish then the traditional plastic pumpkin!
