Have empty gift cards laying around?
Don’t toss them in the trash! Instead, consider recycling them and turning them into a highly used guitar-playing accessory! 🎸 Hip2Save reader, Contessa, found an easy and inexpensive way to repurpose the used-up gift cards from her family and friends… and we think it’s such a fun and frugal idea! It’s great for the environment, too!
Don’t just throw your gift cards in the trash! All of my friends and family save their empty gift cards for me and we recycle them by making guitar picks using a guitar punch I bought off Amazon for less than $20!
Especially right after Christmas, everyone has a gift card or two that they got over the holidays and are using up. Instead of throwing them away, it’s a great way to recycle them by turning them into guitar picks. Having four guitar players in the house who always lose their picks, these are cheap replacements!
What a great DIY gift idea for guitar players, too!
*As always, if you’re going to use a gift card, make sure that there isn’t a remaining balance on it before cutting it up!
