Christmastime Recycling for Nerds

I made some Christmas cards this year out of found/recycled materials (as much as I could, I ended up having to buy large envelopes to fit them in since they turned out quite large.)

I ended up using some old red tech conference badge lanyards as a snowman’s scarf and for some lining ribbon on a couple of my cards. In fact I think one of the ones I used was from the last Red Hat Summit.

What do you do with your old conference badges and lanyards?

(p.s. here’s one of the cards I made)
