What Did You Do With Your Hallmark Christmas Ornament Catalog?

I turned mine into Mail Art.
I started with all those pictures of cute ornaments:
And used a simple scallop circle punch:
And a little adhesive:
To adhere them to some bill return envelopes I didn't use:
And ended up with Mail Art:
I stamped a little on the backs of the envelopes for a little more crafty fun.
I created some Christmas tags to go in those envelopes and sent them off to some unsuspecting Mail Art friends!
Anyone else do something fun with their Hallmark Christmas Ornament Catalog or similar "junk" mail lately?

How clever Melissa...unfortunately we don't get Hallmark catalogues,though I found a website this year and treated myself (and a couple of friends) to a few ornaments!

Wonderful idea on how to use the "junk" we all get in the mail.

HEY! I just received one of these in the mail today! Thank you so much. I actually let out a little shriek of excitement! I love it. First mail I've gotten in months that isn't a bill or a magazine :)
