Vistaprint: What to do with the Freebies!

Vistaprint is currently offering 6 free products and you can combine shipping (details on how to do that here), so everything costs about $7.22!  You can get a t-shirt, business cards, tote bag, photo book, and invites.     At first, I couldn’t really think of what to do with the products, but here’s what I came up with.  (More ideas on the original post too).

Business Cards:  Our church gives us business cards, and I’m not crazy about “Mommy Cards”, so this one was stumping me. Then I thought about “I caught you being good” cards.  I put Colossians 3:23 on it.  Maybe I’ll let the kids trade them in for candy or save them up like “Bible bucks” for a bigger prize.

Invites: I used the Thanksgiving dinner template and made “I’m Thankful for You” cards for my volunteer team.

T-Shirt: There was a design with growing grass, so naturally I got a t-shirt with my blog name on it.  What fun!

Photo Album: No extra charge for uploading 10 of your photos.  You could make a mini-album to display at your ministry registration table or even a album for your Pastor for Pastor Appreciation Month.  I thought about putting all our group pictures through the years in it to see how we’ve grown and changed.  In the end, I made an album of my daughter and her dad for her to look at while he’s at work.

Tote: One of my friends just had a baby, so I chose the stork design and put her baby’s name on it for a personalized diaper bag.

Calendar: I didn’t order this, since I really don’t need it — but maybe you’re the kind of person who loves calendars.

I’d love to hear your ideas! How could you use these free items?
